Abstract

Failure of canine eruption is most commonly caused by abnormal resorption of the deciduous canines, severe dentoalveolar discrepancies, interruption of the biochemical eruptive process, or physical alterations leading to un-controlled ectopic migration of the permanent canine. Severe root re-sorption of a neighboring incisor may result if the canine’s pericoronal follicle is close to the apex of the incisor.1,2 The risk is increased when bilaterally impacted canines erupt in a bicortically centered position between the buccal and palatal cortical bone, over the roots of the maxillary incisors.3,4.
