Özet

A few cases of accidental displacement of molars into adjacent anatomical spaces, such as the infratemporal fossa, the pterygomandibular space, the maxillary sinus, or the lateral pharyngeal space, during surgical interventions have been reported. This report describes the displacement of a maxillary third molar into the buccal space and discusses the anatomical implications.
