Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop. 2009 Mar;135(3):390-9. doi: 10.1016/j.ajodo.2006.12.023.

Abstract

This report describes the orthodontic treatment of a 14-year-old boy who had 3 impacted maxillary teeth (right canine, left central incisor, and left second molar), 2 supernumerary teeth, and an odontoma. The treatment protocol involved surgical intervention followed by sequential traction of the 3 impacted teeth. The patient's smile dramatically improved after orthodontic treatment. Good posterior occlusion was achieved. However, long-term monitoring of the stability and periodontal health is critical.
