ABSTRACT

Orthodontic treatment has different and individualized indications and specifications depending on the dentomaxillary anomaly, the patient’s age, and his good cooperation. If in children the treatment can be preventive, interceptive and curative, being accepted or not by parents or young patients, in adult patients the orthodontic treatment is curative, in collaboration or not with general dentist, with the prosthetist, surgeon, implantologist or periodontist, depending on the  clinical and dento-periodontal status. One of the situations in which the adults require orthodontic treatment is the dental abnormality caused by ectopic palatal eruption or the impacted of maxillary canines. Thus, often adult patients are those who find that the persistent deciduous canine tooth ​​has not been replaced by the permanent one, namely when it has increased mobility or exfoliated and falls or when a definitive canine maxillary canine tooth erupts behind the milky one.
