Impaction of the mandibular second premolars is relatively rare and may offer general dentists and orthodontists special challenges during treatment. The authors discuss two cases involving impacted mandibular second premolars that had migrated before eruption. Surgical and orthodontic therapies were used to bring the teeth into occlusion. The authors emphasize early diagnosis and a collaborative approach between the dental professionals involved in treating these affected patients.
