Abstract

Background: The ectopic teeth can be permanent, deciduous or supernumerary and they are changes caused by the morphogenesis and growth of tissue outside their common positions. The ectopic inclusions occur in about 1% of the population. They can occur due to bad position of tooth germs, development disorder such as cleft palate, because of aberrant patterns of eruption, lack of space in the dental arch and tooth dislocation due to trauma or a pathological injury.

Case Report: This article had as its main objective to present a clinical case of ectopic supernumerary tooth in the nasal cavity proceeding with its surgical removal from a cleft patient who mainly complained of respiratory obstruction.

Conclusion: The importance of a correct diagnosis and suitable treatment through dental extraction through transnasal access was noted, as well as a simultaneous correction of the oralnasal fistula.
