Özet

Introduction: The sagittal locations of Impacted Maxillary Canine (IMC) can be predicted on panoramic radiographs (OPGs). In general, the prediction methods that include the superimposition of the IMC crown on the root or neck of the adjacent incisor, determination of the sector of IMC crown, magnification of IMC, vertical level of IMC crown and angulation of IMC can be used for localising the maxillary IMC, as labially or palatally. The reliability of these prediction methods should be discussed.
