Repositioning of Impacted Canine Using Elastic Chain
Abstract: Failure of eruption of the mandibular permanent canine is an unusual event. There are no such definitive dis - impaction procedures available in the literature. When a patient has an impacted tooth, the timing of orthodontic treatment, the type of surgical procedure to expose the tooth, the orthodontic mechanics, and the potential problems vary depending on which tooth is impacted and its position in the jaw. This case report describes the successful treatment of a patient with an impacted mandibular canine. The impacted tooth was surgically exposed and brought into the arch.
