OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness of a new surgical technique in the treatment of palatally impacted canines. [] Key MethodMATERIALS AND METHODS Six consecutive patients presenting with bilaterally impacted canines were compared. One canine was surgically exposed using a conventional surgical technique while the contralateral canine was exposed using a corticotomy-assisted technique.

Gingiva Surgical Procedures and Clinical Considerations for Impacted Canines: A Review of Previous Studies

The clinician should be aware of variations in the surgical management of labially and palatally impacted canines, as well as the most common methods of canine in orthodontic application, and the implications of canine extraction.

Nonextraction Treatment of Severe Crowding with the Aid of Corticotomy-Assisted Orthodontics

The addition of the decortication procedure to the conventional orthodontic therapy decreased the duration of treatment significantly and successful alignment of both arches with ideal overbite and overjet as well as adequate occlusion was achieved.

Acceleration of canine movement by laser assisted flapless corticotomy (An innovative approach in clinical orthodontics)

The canines on the laser corticotomy side showed statisticaly higher mean value of retraction than their controls during six weeks period and flapless laser assisted corticectomy can be considered for acceleration of orthodontic tooth movement in humans.

The efficacy of alveolar-decortication to reduce treatment time for orthodontic alignment of palatally impacted canines

The use of alveolar-decortication does not reduce the treatment time to align palatally impacted canines, and is not associated with increased pain or need for analgesics.

The combined use of corticotomy and clear aligners: A case report.

This case report may encourage the use, limited to selected cases, of corticotomy associated with clear aligners to treat moderate crowding.

In-vivo effects of flapless osteopuncture-facilitated tooth movement in the maxilla and the mandible

Flapless osteopuncture-facilitated tooth movement resulted in greater canine distalization and reduced molar movement in the maxilla in the experimental than in the control group during the first month ofdistalization.

Rapid orthodontics with alveolar reshaping: two case reports of decrowding.

A new orthodontic method that offers short treatment times and the ability to simultaneously reshape and increase the buccolingual thickness of the supporting alveolar bone is demonstrated, lending credence to the incorporation of the bone augmentation procedure into the corticotomy surgery.

Clinical management of impacted maxillary canines.

Although the management of the ectopically erupting teeth necessitates the combined expertise of a number of clinicians, the orthodontist should have the primary responsibility of coordinating these efforts to provide the patient with the optimal treatment options with the most stable and favorable outcome.
