Tooth transposition is a rare developmental dental anomaly of unknown etiology. It exhibits a clinical challenge due to the presence of 2 teeth in a narrow buccolingual thickness of bone that had interchanged in position; care should be taken to avoid root proximity during movement of the transposed teeth during orthodontic treatment. The acceptance of tooth transposition could be considered the safest method of treatment on the root structure and the surrounding periodontium of the transposed teeth. Correction of tooth transposition could be tried in cases of maxillary lateral incisor canine transposition to avoid adverse effects on esthetics.
