Aim. A tooth is impacted when its apex is formed but does not erupt as expected during thephysiological timeframe of eruption. Maxillary canines, after the third molars are the teeth that morefrequently show alterations of their eruptive process.. Maxillary canines can be positioned in ectopicpalatal or buccal position. In recent years, an extensive search of the literature has shown a correlationbetween the palatal ectopic eruption of the canine and size of the dental elements reduced. Purpose ofthe study was to investigate a relationship between ectopic eruption of the canine oral, dental crowdingand increased diameter of the teeth.
