The purpose of this article is to review the principles of case management of impacted mandibular premolars and to illustrate their potential to respond well to treatment. Although the scope of treatment may be influenced by the patient's age, past dental history, severity of impaction, dentoalveolar development and root form, the 2 case reports demonstrate the inherent potential for good treatment outcome even in the most unfavourable circumstances.
