Bilal ASLAM-PERVEZ 1, Thomas L. DOBSON 2

“Kissing molars” were described by Van Hoof in 1973 as when the occlusal surfaces of impacted molars are united by the same follicular space and the roots point in the opposite direction. There are very few published cases in the literature, it is an extremely rare form of impaction. This report describes a case of bilateral kissing molars in a 20 year old male presenting to a department of Oral & Maxillofacial surgery in Glasgow. There is limited guidance detailing the management of this clinical presentation. Surgical management options are discussed alongside the treatment carried out for the patient.


KEY WORDS: Molar; Tooth extraction; Surgical procedures, operative
