Impaction of permanent teeth is a relatively common occurrence and can involve any tooth in the dental arch. Impacted mandibular second molars are relatively rare, but when they occur they may present a clinical problem for the orthodontist and oral surgeon. Atypical case of bilaterally impacted mandibular second molars is illustrated, with orthodontic and surgical treatment options presented. Emphasis is placed on early diagnosis and initiation of corrective orthodontic therapy.
