Abstract

Transposition is an interchange in the position of two adjacent teeth in the same quadrant of the dental arch. It is a rare occurrence, especially in bilateral cases, which was seen in our case. There are different types of transpositions that are classified on the basis of the tooth involved. It should be recorded in the dental records of a person as it may be of importance in the perspective of forensic odontology. We reported this rare case of bilateral transposition of maxillary canines and first premolars along with a review of the literature.
