Treatment of maxillary impacted canine was always a challenge to the orthodontists. Several treatment options are there for impacted canine like extraction, dis-impaction etc. Successful dis-impaction is always preferable as it helps to gain canine guided occlusion. There are also different modalities for dis-impaction. A 15 years female patient reported with a palatally impacted canine with minor crowding in lower arch. Treatment was started in pre-adjusted MBT prescription. Successful dis-impaction was done by labial auxiliary made from AJW archwire. After treatment class-I canine relation was achieved on both side with correction of crowding in lower arch without significant root resorption.
