Purpose. The surgical-orthodontic treatment of impacted maxillary canine (IMC) remains a challenge to today’s clinicians. The aim of the present paper is to describe an unconventional treatment of IMC with insertion of implant into the retained canine and 3 years follow-up. Case report. A 55-year-old female patient attended to rehabilitate her maxillary left canine site. An unconventional approach was proposed to the patient. A large diameter tapered implant (Ø 5 x 18 mm) was inserted (Nobel Active, Kolten, Swisse). An immediate loading prosthetic rehabilitation was performed. After checking for implant stability the prosthetic steps were carried out and a single crown was delivered with Procera system. Conclusion. The patient was happy of this kind of single non-invasive session for treating IMC. At the 3-year control, the implant did not show any mobility or signs of peri-implantitis clinically or radiographically. In addiction patient was satisfied of aesthetic results

Abstract

Purpose. The surgical-orthodontic treatment of impacted maxillary canine (IMC) remains a challenge to today’s clinicians. The aim of the present paper is to describe an unconventional treatment of IMC with insertion of implant into the retained canine and 3 years follow-up. Case report. A 55-year-old female patient attended to rehabilitate her maxillary left canine site. An unconventional approach was proposed to the patient. A large diameter tapered implant (Ø 5 x 18 mm) was inserted (Nobel Active, Kolten, Swisse). An immediate loading prosthetic rehabilitation was performed. After checking for implant stability the prosthetic steps were carried out and a single crown was delivered with Procera system. Conclusion. The patient was happy of this kind of single non-invasive session for treating IMC. At the 3-year control, the implant did not show any mobility or signs of peri-implantitis clinically or radiographically. In addiction patient was satisfied of aesthetic results
