Abstract

BACKGROUND: Teeth impaction has become a common problem faced by orthodontic clinicians with the greatest incidence reported among third molars and maxillary canines. The great challenge lies in successfully treating these cases without deleteriously affecting the impacted as well as adjacent teeth while achieving acceptable functional and esthetic results. Several etiological factors have been associated with impactions including the presence of an odontome which is an asymptomatic odontogenic hamartomatous lesion.

CASE REPORT: This article presents a detailed orthodontic assessment and treatment of a 16 years old female having impacted right maxillary lateral incisor and canine caused by complex odontome.

CONCLUSION: Successful orthodontic treatment of multiple impactions can be achieved with minimal side effects even when odontomes are associated, through 3D radiographic examination, detailed evaluation as well as proper biomechanical control.
