Ectopic Tooth into the Arch by Piggyback Double Wire Technique: A Case Report

Dr. Savitha Sathyaprasad [5] | Dr. Sneha S [3]

Abstract: This article discusses the importance of comprehensive oral health care for Pediatric dental patients, with a particular focus on the eruption and development of maxillary incisors and canines, often referred to as the social six. These teeth play a crucial role in facial aesthetics and phonetics, making their accurate eruption and alignment essential. The article emphasizes the significance of identifying and managing deviations from the typical eruption patterns, especially in cases of ectopic eruption, which can indicate underlying local or systemic diseases. The authors present a case report of a 9-year-old girl with ectopic eruption of the maxillary incisor and describe the treatment approach using a 2 * 4 appliance with a piggyback double wire technique. The article highlights the importance of early interceptive orthodontics to achieve optimal outcomes in such cases, improving both dental and psychosocial aspects of a patient's well-being.
