Radiographic localisation and management of maxillary impacted canine: a case report

Abstract

The most commonly impacted teeth in the oral cavity next to the mandibular molars, are the maxillary canines. Generally, impacted canines are asymptomatic in nature, which make the patients less concern about them being impacted until it is associated with any pathology. Therefore, most of the canine impactions are moreover accidentally diagnosed in routine dental visits. In this article, a case of maxillary impacted canine is presented which was asymptomatic like majority of the impacted canines which have been reported in the literature.
