INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to evalute the relation between buccally displaced canine and nasal septum deviation.
METHODS: 822 individuals (mean age 12,91±2,21; 459 female, 353 male) were divided into has buccally displaced canine (n=411) and has no buccally displaced group (n=411). Intra-oral photographs were used to evaluate the position of displaced canine. Postero-anterior radiographs were used to determine the deviated nasal septum. Chi-square test was used for analysing the variables.
RESULTS: While the incidence of septum deviation is 70.1% in individuals with buccal ectopic canine, the rate of septum deviation in individuals with canine teeth in normal position is 40.6%. A statistically significant relationship was found between the presence of canine in the ectopic position in the buccal and the deviation of the septum(p=0,000).
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: In intraoral examination, it can be estimated that there may also be a nasal septum deviation when buccal ectopic canine is found. It should be kept in mind that a patients may be directed to medical doctor to prevent problems that may occur in the long term as a result of the nasal septum deviation.
