The present article describes a case report of a palatal canine impaction in a 14 year old male patient. The case was treated by surgical exposure of the impacted tooth followed by orthodontic traction. Sufficient space was created prior to the application of traction forces. The total treatment time was 22 months. The treatment duration in such cases depends on the age of the patient and the position of the impacted tooth with respect to the occlusal plane and mesiodistal position of the tooth.
