The objective of this study was to analyze the prevalence of peg lateral incisors with of maxillary buccally displaced canines (BDC).
No reported attempts have so far been made to study the correlation of buccal ectopia of maxillary canine with size of lateral incisors in Pakistani population; therefore objective of this study was to analyze the prevalence and relationship of peg lateral incisors with of BDC.
19 The significance of association between peg lateral incisors with of BDC was analyzed with the chi-square test.
We have not excluded the genetic aspect in etiology of BDC, but we presented another etiological theory for the BDC in non crowded dentitions in terms of the lack of guidance from adjacent peg lateral incisor.
