Mesioverted maxillary canine teeth in combination with linguoverted mandibular canine teeth are a common ramification of persistent deciduous maxillary and mandibular canine teeth. Without the physical presence of the mandibular canine teeth, the maxillary third incisor and canine teeth diastemata are frequently narrowed. The creation of normal occlusion requires treatment of all 4 canine teeth; the mandibular canine teeth must be tipped labially and the maxillary canine teeth must be tipped and/or partially translated distally. This case report discusses the novel integration of 2 well-described orthodontic techniques to simultaneously treat both mesioverted maxillary canine teeth and linguoverted mandibular canine teeth, achieving a comfortable, functional occlusion.
