The question arises: How much detailed info do orthodontists need regarding
the relationship of an impacted canine to the adjacent teeth. Is it
sufficient for them to know whether the tooth is buccal or lingual to the
adjacent teeth, along with the vertical angle of impaction? Or does
additional information (such as the distance between the impacted tooth and
adjacent teeth and the horizontal angle of impaction) improve the diagnostic
and therapeutic outcome for orthodontic patients? We will need the input of
orthodontists in this matter.
