A tooth presenting in the nasal cavity is an unusual phenomenon. Supernumerary teeth usually occur in the upper incisor area. Other locations may be the maxillary third molar and the mandibular bicuspid areas. Nasal teeth are a rare form of supernumerary teeth. They may be asymptomatic or may present with nasal obstruction and infection. They may be removed through a nasal approach.
