Özet

This article presents different treatment aspects in three mandibular lateral incisor-canine transposition cases. The early identification of transposed teeth simplifies orthodontic correction. Incomplete transposition cases can be managed successfully by interceptive orthodontic treatment. If complete transposition occurs, two treatment alternatives may be possible: Extraction of the transposed tooth or keep the teeth in their transposed positions.
