Maxillary canine is an essential part of teeth for smile esthetic and function. Orthodontic treatment for patient with impacted maxillary canine is considered to be more complex and require good biomechanical control during traction. This case report describes an orthodontic treatment of a 17-year old female patient with unilateral maxillary canine impaction on the left side. Orthodontic traction was used to guide the canine into normal occlusion. The orthodontic treatment had been completed within 19 months and successfully obtained favourable esthetic and stable occlusion.
