Abstract

  This report describes a case of a 44year old Indo-Trinidadian woman who presented with impacted canines. On examination the patient was found to have retained upper right and left primary canines. A panoramic x-ray was taken which showed fully developed permanent canines and primary canines whose roots showed no sign of resorption. The patient also presented with dental anxiety and hence was an irregular attender. The presenting complaint was attempted eruption of upper left permanent canine and thus the patient requested removal of the upper primary canines and she would accept the resulting alignment. The upper left primary canine was removed, and the root was found to be intact with no resorption of the primary canine was evident. The permanent canine after 3 months showed some active eruption into the arch, although at review after 4 years it remained not fully erupted. Interceptive extraction of primary canines in an adult may allow spontaneous/active eruption of impacted permanent canines.
