Most mesiodens remain impacted and can affect the growth and development of adjacent permanent teeth. Impacted mesiodens are usually located in an intraosseous position associated with complicated anatomical structures, necessitating minimally invasive surgical approaches. This article demonstrates a simple customized surgical stent for extraction of impacted mesiodens. Its use and advantages are described.
