The maxillary canine comes after the third molar as the most frequently included tooth. The prevalence of maxillary canine impact is 0.8%–2.8%. Buccally included canines represent a minority of cases, approximately 15%–32% of the cases depending on the authors. The placement in the arch is often more complex due to periodontal considerations, the frequent proximity of the lateral incisor root and the very precise control of the direction of the tension to be delivered by the device. In this clinical case, the combination of two innovative techniques—submerged temporary anchorage device and customized lingual device—made it possible to decrease both the complexity of the treatment for the practitioner and the constraints for the patient.
Key words: Buccal included canine / miniscrew anchorage / customized lingual device
