SALAMANCA, Carlos et al. Transmigrated Canines Associated to Odontomas. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.2, pp.465-468. ISSN 0717-9502.

We present the case of a 13-year-old patient with bilateral transmigration of mandibular canine associated with multiple composite odontoma. Impacted canines are very uncommon, with a 0.1 % to 3.6 % prevalence of appearance. The presence in the mandible is less frequent. The odontoma development is often associated with the impacted canines. The etiology is unknown but is associated with traumatic, infectious, hereditary or genetic factors. This pathology is asymptomatic and associated with eruption disorders in temporal and permanent dentition.
