In cases involving palatally impacted maxillary canines, it is essential to properly identify the location of the impacted tooth. In addition, estimating treatment duration is important to the orthodontist and patient.
Purpose: This study uses three-dimensional cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to evaluate and assess accurately the relationship between the palatally impacted canine and maxillary lateral incisor on the same or the opposite side and relate this position to treatment duration.
Methods: A sample of 30 cases involving palatally impacted canines with pretreatment CBCT scans was identified. After registration to a standardized coordinate system, the initial position and angulation of the impacted tooth was measured, along with the morphological variation observed in the adjacent lateral incisor.
Results:  In this study the maxillary lateral incisors in the palatally displaced canine group tended to be more upright in the sagittal and coronal plane. The sagittal angulation of the canine and the coronal angulation of the canine were highly correlated with each other.
Conclusion: The impacted maxillary canine has a significant effect on the morphology of adjacent lateral incisor.
