TROYA BORGES, Eddy; MARTINEZ ABREU, Judit; PADILLA SUAREZ, Ernesto  y  MATOS CAMPO, Mayra Rosa. Surgical treatment of retained canines in the municipality of Colon. Years 2013-2014. Rev.Med.Electrón. [online]. 2016, vol.38, n.2, pp.123-131. ISSN 1684-1824.

Background: canines are, usually, the last teeth erupting inside the dental arcs. When there is retention of them, it is important to lead them into the dental arc through orthodontic treatment due to functional and esthetic reasons. Aim: describing the behavior of retained canines in the municipality of Colon, province of Matanzas. Materials and methods: the universe of work was formed by 40 patients receiving attention in the multidisciplinary consultation (Orthodontics- Maxillofacial) of the Stomatologic Clinic “27 de Noviembre”, who were surgically treated in the Maxillofacial Service of the Territorial Teaching Hospital “Dr Mario Muñoz” of Colon, Matanzas, in the period between January 2013 and December 2014, with a diagnosis of retained canine. Outcomes: the predominating age was 14 years old in 11 patients, for 27.5 % of the sample; there were not differences in gender and skin color. European people were the most represented ones, with 36 patients, for 90 %. The most affected retained canine was the upper right one (17 cases) for 42.5 %. Palatine location was found in 24 cases, for 60 %. Of the 40 retained canines, brackets were applied to 29 (72.5 %) and 11 were removed, for 27.5 %. Conclusions: the orthodontic treatment of the upper retained canines may be very difficult and requires a careful and well-planed interdisciplinary approach.

Palabras clave : retained canines; orthodontics.
