Feline mesially deviated canine

The maxillary canine tooth when mesially deviated may be caused by a genetic cause, such as in Shetland Sheepdogs, or malocclusion of the mandible which results in the mandibular canine traumatising the maxillary canine or trauma which moves the permanent tooth bud. The mesial position of the maxillary tooth often closes the diastema and forces the mandibular canine buccally. Many treatment options are available.
