The peripatetic mandibular second premolar
AUTHOR(S): Dr. Nishitha C Gowda, Dr. Santosh R, Dr. B.V. Chandre Gowda
ABSTRACT: The intra-osseous migration of the non-erupting teeth is a rare natural condition of horizontal tooth movement and impaction. It occurs more commonly in the mandible and involves the second premolar or the canine. When the second premolars are affected they are always found distal to its normal position. The origins of the second premolar intra-osseous migration phenomenon is obscure and usually no treatment is recommended1. They can be left in situ or can be extracted if they are associated with any pathology or for orthodontic treatment.
