Figure 4 Examples of the first (left) and last (right) radiographs in three series (upper, middle, lower) from the longitudinal study of ectopic mandibular canines. The upper row illustrates radiographs from a male, 9 years old (left) and 12 years old (right). Left: Both mandibular canines have a FAC morphology. Right: The same patient observed 3 years later. The right mandibular canine shifted upright and preserved the crown morphology while the left tilted down and rotated as observed in the lateral LAT crown morphology. The middle row illustrates radiographs from a female, 10 years old (left) and 12 years old (right). Left: the canine crown had the crown morphology FAC. Right: 2 years later the same patient is observed in the right figure. The original FAC morphology of the right canine crown has changed to a ROT morphology during development. This indicates that the canine has not only tilted downwards but also rotated. The lower row illustrates Radiographs from a female, 9 years old (left) and 12 years old (right). Left: the canine crown has a crown morphology named ROT (rotation). Right: 3 years later the radiographs to the right illustrates the situation where the mandibular canine has tilted and attained a lateral morphology LAT
