Management of ectopic permanent maxillary canines represents one of the greatest challenges to orthodontists. This paper outlines a variety of techniques and mechanics which may facilitate expedient, predictable and safe eruption of palatal canines. While each method may be useful in isolation, the varying presentations of palatal canines ensure that the ability to apply an array of techniques is essential if successful outcomes are to be consistently achieved.
