The most frequently impacted tooth in the dental arch after the third molars is the maxillary canine. The incidence of its impaction is between 1 and 2.5 %. Impactions of canine can be either buccal or lingual.1 Around 85% of impactions are palatal while the remaining 15% are buccal. Canine impaction occurs twice as more in the maxilla than in the mandible. In subjects with impacted maxillary canines, 8% of impactions occur bilaterally.2
