Abstract: Canine ectopia is a frequently occurring orthodontic problem that has been previously linked to a variety of dental anomalies. We report a case series where the presence of ectopic canines has occurred in the presence of different severities of dens invaginatus in the adjacent lateral incisor. This observation has not been reported previously. The implications of this possible link are discussed.
Clinical Relevance: Dens invaginatus is a significant threat to pulp vitality and can have serious consequences, especially in the developing dentition. The early diagnosis and treatment of this condition, which could be linked to canine ectopia, is discussed.
