The current case report demonstrates orthodontic management of an impacted permanent maxillary right canine using 0.016” nickel–titanium auxiliary archwire on a 19” × 25” stainless steel base archwire. In the present case, the reason for impaction of the canine was an overlying retained primary canine and a calcifying epithelial odontogenic tumor (CEOT) in that area. The over-retained primary canine was extracted and CEOT was enucleated. Closed eruption technique, with a Begg's bracket bonded on the labial surface of the impacted canine, was followed as it facilitates the preservation of attached gingiva around the newly erupted tooth. This case report demonstrates an orthodontic-guided eruption and repositioning of an impacted permanent maxillary canine using a ligature tie and a Begg's bracket. Closed eruption of the impacted maxillary right canine was followed by a comprehensive fixed mechanotherapy.
