Impacted tooth refers to a tooth that fails to erupt into the dental arch within a specific time.[1] Teeth frequently impacted are third molars, maxillary canines, maxillary and mandibular premolars and maxillary central incisors. Prevalence of impacted maxillary canines is 0.9–2.2% and of impacted mandibular canines is 0.05–0.4%.[2 3] Failure of eruption of the mandibular canine is an unusual event. It has been suggested that eruption disturbances of a mandibular canine are most often caused by local factors such as mechanical obstruction (supernumerary tooth/cyst/tumour), insufficient space in the dental arch and tooth-arch size discrepancy. Systemic factors such as genetic disorders, endocrine deficiencies and previous irradiation of the jaws also have been suggested to play a role. Surgical exposure and orthodontic management of impacted canines have been used to bring impacted teeth into occlusion. The following case report presents combined surgical and orthodontic management of an unerupted mandibular permanent right canine.

Keywords: supernumerary tooth/cyst/tumour.
