Title:  Surgical management of impacted primary teeth: report of two cases

Abstract:  Background Impaction of deciduous teeth is an uncommon event. The purpose of this report is to describe two unusual eruption failures of a second primary molar and their treatment management. Case report The diagnostic and therapeutic protocol of two cases selected at the Unit of Paediatric Dentistry, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Science, “Sapienza” University of Rome, Italy, are presented. In both cases, the second deciduous molar was impacted, while no mechanical obstacle like odontomas or supernumerary teeth were present. Conclusion The two case reports presented in this work are of scientific relevance, due to the rarity of this type of pathology.
