Complete tooth eruption, especially canine, will affect facial esthetic and the harmony. Surgical procedure will help
to expose an impacted tooth determining orthodontically into dental arch. Clinical and radiographic examination
should be taken for locating the position of the tooth. The flap was designed differently between labially or palatally
impacted canine. A 16 years old female came to clinic with Class III Angle dental and skeletal malocclusion with an
impacted of upper left canine. She was treated with fixed orthodontic appliance using edgewise technique and
surgical exposure using closed-eruption technique. The proper diagnosis and management between oral and
maxillofacial surgery, and orthodontics will guarantee good result.
