A third molar displaced in the orbital floor is a very rare sighting. The usual surgical approach to such a case is the Caldwell Luc procedure that has its own complications. Here in this article, we present a 17-year-old male patient with third molar displaced in the orbital floor with egg shell thin anterior wall. The aim of the article is to report the unusuality of the case and to emphasize the endoscopic assisted approach to the orbital floor through a relatively small sub-labial incision. Endoscope aids in preserving the integrity of vital structures, facial aesthetics and complete eradication of the disease with faster recovery. Though, endoscopic approach requires requisite expertise, it is a learnable skill and can be mastered with ease.
