Literature is replete with information on the diverse patterns exhibited by impacted teeth and a clinical scenario in which >1 impacted teeth appears in close proximity is documented very rarely. Occasionally, molars are found to be impacted in interesting patterns which were described previously as “rosette teeth” or “kissing molars”. This article intends to introduce a new term, namely, “cuddling teeth” to broadly describe the clinical presentations where 2 or >2 impacted teeth are found in close approximation.
