Abstract

Orthodontic management of impacted maxillary canines can be very complex and requires a carefully planned interdisciplinary approach. The proper localization, surgical exposure technique, diagnosis and treatment planning of the impacted tooth plays a crucial role in determining the feasibility of, as well as the proper access for the surgical approach and the proper direction for the application of orthodontic forces.

This Case report describes the surgical and orthodontic management of a patient with a labially impacted permanent maxillary canine. Following surgical exposure, orthodontic traction was applied to reposition the canine with resultant proper functioning, excellent esthetics, and good periodontal health.
