Abstract

Background

The transmigration of a mandibular canine is a rare phenomenon, the etiology of which is not clear. The literature on this rare condition is reviewed, and six cases of transmigrated mandibular canines are presented.

Report

Panoramic radiographic examination of six patients revealed each patient had one impacted transmigrated mandibular canine. Of the six impacted teeth, the left mandibular canine was involved in four instances and the right in two. In one case the transmigrated canine was associated with a dentigerous cyst.

Summary

Transmigration of the mandibular canine is a rare event, and early radiographic examination of the patient is important for treatment. In addition, future studies may lead to a better understanding of this rare anomaly and improvement of the classification criteria.
