Abstract: The permanent maxillary canine?premolar transposition is the most frequently observed transposition in the human dentition. It is characterized by a relatively low prevalence and an unclear cause, although genetic factors have been implicated. Additionally, a combination of localized factors, including malformation of neighboring teeth, tooth absence, retention of the deciduous canine, and a history of localized trauma, may be associated with this transposition. It is generally not recommended to correct the order of the transposed teeth after the eruption of the permanent tooth. However, there have been several articles published in the last decade that discuss the non - extraction treatment of transposition using fixed mechanics. This article presents a detailed case study of the non - extraction treatment of maxillary left canine and first premolar transposition. It discusses the diagnosis, treatment planning, orthodontic interventions, and outcomes, emphasizing the importance of dental placement and interdisciplinary collaboration for successful outcomes. The case concluded with functional inhibition, an optimal bite relationship, and aesthetic enhancement. So, the purpose of this article is to present a comprehensive case study on the transposition of maxillary canine and premolar, including the treatment approach, challenges encountered, and the final outcomes achieved.
