Reviewing the literatures, the most frequently impacted tooth was mandibular third molar, followed by the maxillary third molars, the maxillary canines and the mandibular premolars. The current case report aimed to present a rare inverted and impacted maxillary third molar incidentally detected in a patient of mandibular unicystic ameloblastoma on panoramic radiography, highlighting the importance of thorough radiographic examination of any jawbone lesions to detect the potential occurrence of other dental anomalies using panoramic radiography.
