Conservative surgical management of a supernumerary tooth in the nasal cavity


A 9-year-old girl presented with a foreign body obstruction inside her nose. The condition led to pain and nasal congestion. CT showed the presence of a radiopaque mass similar to a tooth in the right nasal cavity. Diagnosis of a supernumerary intranasal tooth was made and extraction was performed under general anaesthesia. An ectopic tooth in the nasal cavity is rare and surgical removal is recommended to eliminate the symptoms.
