Generally, the chief complaint of the patients is crowding or antetior crossbite which is not related with canine impaction, but sometimes they complainted delayed eruption of the canine or deviation of the adjacent teeth caused by canine impaction. Orthodondists have to make the proper treatment plan according to final treatment goals. On the following cases, two patients were diagnosed as a malocclusion with canine impaction, and were treated by different accesses, one by extraction, and the other by non-extraction each.
