INTRODUCTION:

Maxillary canine-first premolar transposition (Mx.C.P1) is an uncommon dental positional anomaly that may create many orthodontic problems from both esthetic and functional points of view.

OBJECTIVE:

In this report we show the orthodontic management of a case of Mx.C.P1 associated with bilateral maxillary lateral incisor agenesis and unilateral mandibular second premolar agenesis

METHODS:

The patient was treated with a multibracket appliance and the extraction of the lower premolar.

RESULTS:

treatment was completed without the need for any prosthetic replacement.
