Prevalence and Localization of Impacted Canine Teeth in Both Jaws Using Panoramic Radiograph in a Selected Iranian Population, Shiraz, 2012

Abdolaziz Haghnegahdar, Hooman Zarif Najafi, Sima Abdollahi

Background: Since there has been no published report on the impact of permanent canines in Shiraz population, this study was conducted to investigate the prevalence and the location of the impacted permanent canines in patients referred to the Department of Radiology of Shiraz Dental School in 2012.

Materials and Methods: This was an analytic cross-sectional study on 1012 panoramic radiographs. For localization, the Canine Incisor Index (CII) was employed.

Results: A total number of 28 cases presented with at least one impacted canine. The prevalence of impacted canine (2.8%) was reported not differ significantly between the genders (p>0.05). Fifteen of the total of 28 cases could be included in the method of using CII and 6 were located palatally.

Conclusion: According to the results of this study, the prevalence of canine impaction in the selected population is estimated to be 2.8%. Sixty percent of the impacted canines that could be located were in buccal area.
