Abstract

Introduction: Displacement of tooth or root fragments into adjacent anatomical spaces is an uncommon complication of the removal of teeth. In this paper with presenting two cases, inwhich during extracting mandibular third molar, the tooth was displaced into pterygomandibular space, principles of prevention and management have been discussed. Results: First case was a 23 year old man with mesioangular third molar. His dentist had tried to extract it by close technique and the teeth entered the pterigomandibular space. Second case was a 35 year old man with a horizontal third molar. His dentist used flap approach to extract it, but the teeth was pushed into pterigomandibular space. Conclusion: Following the principles of prevention, patient selection, appropriate technique of tooth extraction and also choosing proper instruments especially for the third molars with the highest prevalence of displacement into the pterygomandibulars space during extraction, is necessary which has the most incidences meanwhile.
