Impaction of maxillary molars is an extremely rare condition and difficult to manage. This case reports a rare cause for impacted maxillary molars which has not been reported in the literature till date. A 13-year-old patient with missing right maxillary first and second molars reported to the outpatient department. Cone beam computed tomography scan of maxilla revealed a complex relationship between the roots of first and second molars and a developing third molar crown. Surgical enucleation of third molar facilitated spontaneous eruption of both first and second molars. Dilaceration of the roots and pressure from developing third molar germ led to the impaction of both maxillary molars which has not been reported in literature yet. Hence, careful determination of etiologic factor for impaction and its elimination with periodic introspection may help in treating the problem with simple and conservative methods.
