This study analyzes the need for and possibility of obtaining further information from different radiographic procedures in 125 children with potential ectopic eruption of the maxillary canines. After clinical examination of 3,000 10 to 15-year-old children, it was found that 7% needed radiographic examinations for determination of the canine position.(More)
The purpose of the study was to analyze the extent and prevalence of resorption of maxillary incisors after ectopic eruption of the maxillary canines in a sample of subjects referred to an orthodontic specialist clinic for consultation. The subjects consisted of 107 children, 39 boys and 68 girls, between 9 and 15 years of age (mean 12.5 years), with 156(More)
Factors predisposing to resorption of adjacent permanent lateral incisors caused by ectopic eruption of maxillary canines were evaluated. The subjects consisted of two groups: one with 40 lateral incisors with resorption caused by ectopic eruption and a control group of 118 ectopic eruption cases with no lateral incisor resorption. The mean age of the(More)
The purpose of the study was to analyze the ability of computerized tomography (CT) scanning to discriminate maxillary incisor root resorptions caused by ectopically erupting canines. Seventeen maxillary incisors were radiographed in vivo by CT scanning. Contiguous transverse CT scans with a slice thickness of 2 mm were exposed perpendicular to the long(More)
We performed computed tomography (CT) on 107 children and adolescents aged 9-15 years with 176 unerupted maxillary canines (152 erupting ectopically and 24 erupting normally) to determine whether there is an association between widened dental follicles of the maxillary canines and resorption of the adjacent incisors during eruption. Contiguous axial(More)
In 505 Swedish schoolchildren, the need to supervise the eruption of the maxillary canines was assessed by digital palpation and related to occlusal development and somatic maturity. The aim was to judge the extent to which clinical methods should be supplemented with radiographic methods. The 505 children, aged 8-12 yr, were clinically investigated and the(More)
The purpose of this study was to analyze treatment outcome and treatment planning before and after a computerized tomography (CT) investigation of children with retained and ectopically positioned maxillary canines. Intraoral and panoramic radiographs, computerized tomographs, and, in some cases, lateral head films were taken of 80 children with 113(More)
