Following the third molar, the maxillary canine holds the second position of the most frequently impacted tooth. The orthodontic management of the tooth depends on its position and in many cases, the orthodontic guidance is graded difficult with poor prognosis. Autotransplantation of canine is a viable option in such cases if the tooth can be atraumatically removed. The case reports a young female with an impacted maxillary canine, which was graded difficult. The case was managed using auto transplantation and orthodontic alignment.

Abstract


Following the third molar, the maxillary canine holds the second position of the most frequently impacted tooth. The orthodontic management of the tooth depends on its position and in many cases, the orthodontic guidance is graded difficult with poor prognosis. Autotransplantation of canine is a viable option in such cases if the tooth can be atraumatically removed. The case reports a young female with an impacted maxillary canine, which was graded difficult. The case was managed using auto transplantation and orthodontic alignment.
