ABSTRACT

Skeletal anchorage is recommended as an orthodontic treatment for an impacted immature permanent tooth. Among these methods, C-tube is relatively safe because it is fixed to the cortical bone of interdental and thelower part of the root with several short miniscrews, which causes less damage to the root in patients of earlypermanent dentition. As it can be easily bent, the traction direction can be adjusted to favorable bone densitysites. However, patient cooperation is important and traction based on physiological force in order to gain rootand dentoalveolar tissue development in immature permanent teeth is required. Periodic follow-ups should bemandatory.
