Ectopic tooth eruption in the dentate region of the jaws is common in clinical practice and is well described in the literature. Ectopic eruption into the nondentate zone, on the other hand, is uncommon and poorly described. Apart from the nasal septum, mandibular condyle, coronoid process, palate, the maxillary sinus is one such nondentate area that may contain such ectopic tooth eruptions. The incident hence ought to be added to the literature and analyzed because of its rarity and lack of consensus on its management. The treatment of choice is early surgical removal of the ectopic tooth, as well as enucleation of accompanying cysts, if any.
