Subjects and Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of 2157 patients' panoramic radiographs who visited any of the three campuses of Riyadh Colleges of Dentistry and Pharmacy clinics between August 2014 and May 2015. Analysis was performed specifically for the purpose of this study. Results: Among the 2157 panoramic radiographs analyzed, we found canine impaction in 79 patients (3.65% of the total sample size). Seventy-three cases had maxillary canine impaction (3.37% of the total population) and eight patients with mandibular canine impaction. Conclusions: Higher than the reported figures, in this large cohort of Riyadh population reviewed, canine TI is 3.6%.
