Stainless steel double loop appliance to correct ectopically positioned maxillary permanent first molar
Author(s) Maen Mahfouz
ABSTRACT

Ectopic eruption is the abnormal eruption of a permanent tooth that often causes root resorption of an adjacent primary tooth which can be noted during routine dental radiographic evaluation. The mesial eruption of the permanent first molar may be a local eruption problem or may indicate developmental arch circumference deficiency requiring further consideration. Early treatment is mandatory to move the ectopically erupting tooth away from the tooth it is resorbing to allow the tooth to erupt into its normal position, maintaining a normal arch circumference. Although much has been written about ectopic eruption of the maxillary first permanent molar, no case report mentions correction of ectopically erupted maxillary permanent first molar by using double loop stainless steel.
