ABSTRACT
Introduction: Tooth ankylosis is one of the most difficult problems in orthodontics. Conventional orthodontic treatment techniques are insufficient for ankylosis tooth movement and require special treatment approaches. The development of corticotomy-assisted orthodontic treatment is a promising source for movement of the ankylosed tooth. The maxillary canines are important teeth in terms of esthetics and function. The maxillary canine is second only to the mandibular third molars in frequency of impaction. Reported impaction rates have varied from 1–3%.
Case Report: A 12-year-old girl was presented with impacted and ankylosed upper left canine tooth. Corticotomy assisted orthodontic treatment was done due to upper left canine tooth would never move with orthodontic treatment.
Conclusion: Vertically upper left canine tooth movement was achieved approximately 5 mm. The results were satisfying for the aesthetic position of the canines.

Keywords: Fixed orthodontic treatment, Impacted, Osteotomy, Tooth ankylosis
