AbstractEarly detection of upper canine eruptive problems, give a better chance for thepreventive steps to be taken. 328 maxillary canines in pre-emergence phase, werestudied on the bases of (164) panoramic radiographic records of Iraqi children age 5-12 years (72 boys - 92 girls). Canine inclination (CI) (relative to a plane between thesuborbital points), and its relation to the lateral incisor (CLR) were studied. Thelateral incisor developmental stage (LID) was evaluated too.Results showed that, in initial stages of (LID), the canine lateral incisor relation(CLR) is almost characterized by overlapping, a situation rarely seen in the finalstages. Only 8-15% of the overlapping is found when the lateral incisor wascompletely developed (CO), detecting possible canine anomalies in this stage,especially when associated with other clinical signs as non-palpation of the cuspidbulge in the alveolar process. Then extraction of the primary canine is advised toprevent impaction
