Unilateral transposition of lateral and canine
I have a case having maxillary canine and latera lincisor are transposed (left side). Case need extraction treatment, suggest me which teeth should I extract, 1. extract premolar with contouring canine as lateral, lateral as canine 2. extract lateral incisor, contour pm as canine and canine as lateral 3. extract canine , contour pm as canine
If the lateral is competely transposed, that is, in the cuspid place and is not just palatal of the cuspid, the incisor can be removed. The cuspid should be trimmed. There may be some space differences between the upper incisors and the lowers that can be alleviated by light stripping. Orm
To the group: Does anyone know where I can find the exact type of measuring gauge shown below? It says European Orthodontic Products on it, which I cannot seem to find on the web. It also has INOX imprinted on it. I would like to buy new if someone can get me a phone number for the company, or used if anyone has some they would like to get rid of.
