Abstract

Background: this study was conducted with an objective to assess the pattern of distribution of impacted maxillary canine in orthodontic Bihar population using CBCT.

Methods: The study included CBCT scans of total 1080 patients in the age group of 13-40 years who came for orthodontic correction in Buddha Institute of Dental sciences and Hospital. The scans were evaluated for the presence of any impacted maxillary canines from July 2021 to July 2022.

Results: Out of 1080 scans, in the age range of 13-40 years, the prevalence of impacted maxillary canine was 2.77% in Bihar population.  Out of these 30 impacted maxillary canines, 19 impactions were present in females and 11 were in males. Out of 30 subjects, 21 had unilateral impactions and 9 had bilateral impactions. The incidence of mesioangular impactions (type II) were maximum (46.7%) followed by horizontal impaction (type IV) was 23.3%.

Conclusions: The incidence of maxillary canine impaction in Bihar population was 2.7% and the type of impaction which was commonest was mesioangular impaction (Type II), which was in the accordance with many other studies.
