Orthodontic disimpaction of impacted maxillary canines requires careful planning of anchorage and proper traction technique to achieve controlled movement of canines through the bone and attached gingiva for maximum esthetics and periodontal health. Trans-XX is a modified transpalatal appliance to simultaneously disimpact an impacted canine along with arch expansion.
