OBJECTIVE To evaluate the eruption path of the permanent maxillary canine during a 1-year period after secondary alveolar bone grafting and to (1) compare the canine eruption path on the cleft and noncleft side, (2) examine the number of congenially missing lateral incisors and the rate of canine impaction, and (3) examine the relationship between the eruption status of the canine and timing of alveolar bone grafting relative to age and canine root development using cone beam computed… CONTINUE READING
