Objectives: To present an international literature revision on etiology, epidemiology, diagnosis and therapeutic options of teeth transpositions. Materials and methods: A systematic revision of the literature has been done on Medline database (www.ncbi.nim.nih.gov/pubmed). Keywords chosen were "teeth transposition, canine transposition, mandibular teeth transposition, tooth eruption (ectopic), premolar transposition, incisor transposition, molar transposition" and articles about dental maxillary and mandibular transposition developing with etiology, etiopathology, therapeutic options, results obtained were considered. Among articles, that ones published among 1977 and 2008 were considered. Using limits, only articles referred to humans were considered. Results: In literature different definitions about transposition are present. Etiology is variable, with genetic and extrinsic causes. Besides, variables are also prevalence and incidence, largely influenceable by geography and population. Therapeutic possibilities are different on the basis of the age of the patients, on the type of transposition, on the aesthetic advantage, on the compliance of the patients and on the teeth interested. Conclusions: On the scientific evidences present in literature it is possible to conclude that orthodontic correction of dental transposition is one of the therapeutic possibilities and it is largely influenced by the age of the patient, the eruptive stadium and bone structure. Early diagnosis and treatment are important conditions for reaching a good clinical result.

Abstract

Objectives: To present an international literature revision on etiology, epidemiology, diagnosis and therapeutic options of teeth transpositions. Materials and methods: A systematic revision of the literature has been done on Medline database (www.ncbi.nim.nih.gov/pubmed). Keywords chosen were "teeth transposition, canine transposition, mandibular teeth transposition, tooth eruption (ectopic), premolar transposition, incisor transposition, molar transposition" and articles about dental maxillary and mandibular transposition developing with etiology, etiopathology, therapeutic options, results obtained were considered. Among articles, that ones published among 1977 and 2008 were considered. Using limits, only articles referred to humans were considered. Results: In literature different definitions about transposition are present. Etiology is variable, with genetic and extrinsic causes. Besides, variables are also prevalence and incidence, largely influenceable by geography and population. Therapeutic possibilities are different on the basis of the age of the patients, on the type of transposition, on the aesthetic advantage, on the compliance of the patients and on the teeth interested. Conclusions: On the scientific evidences present in literature it is possible to conclude that orthodontic correction of dental transposition is one of the therapeutic possibilities and it is largely influenced by the age of the patient, the eruptive stadium and bone structure. Early diagnosis and treatment are important conditions for reaching a good clinical result.
