A right impacted mandibular third molar (IMTM) accidently displaced into the parapharyngeal space was dislodged successfully in only 5 minutes, with no sequel. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) images were used to direct the removal. Five minutes is the shortest time having been reported. Considering that the event happens rarely, this report could add another case, and provide further reference to the dentists.
