Transmigration of Mandibular Canines - A Rare and Alluring Entity, Case Series of 2 Cases

Dr. Taruna Puri | Dr Mridul Khanduri

Abstract: Transmigration is a rare entity. The occurrence of transmigration of mandibular canines varies from 0.14% to 0.31%.Canines are considered as cornerstones of the dental arches. In this paper we report 2 cases of impacted mandibular canines migrating through the midline and review the various etiologies and management of transmigration and significance of early recognition. Routine intraoral periapical radiographs may not reveal transmigration and they should be supplemented by a orthopantomogram, especially in a mixed dentition stage if the permanent canine has failed to erupt for more than one year.

Keywords: transmigration of canines, treatment of transmigrated canine
