Ectopic eruption is the abnormal eruption of a permanenttooth that often causes root resorption of an adjacent primary tooth which canbe noted during routine dental radiographic evaluation. The mesial eruption ofthe permanent first molar may be a local eruption problem or may indicatedevelopmental arch circumference deficiency requiring further consideration.Early treatment is mandatory to move the ectopically erupting tooth away fromthe tooth it is resorbing to allow the tooth to erupt into its normal position,maintaining a normal arch circumference. Although much has been written aboutectopic eruption of the maxillary first permanent molar, no case reportmentions correction of ectopically erupted maxillary permanent first molar byusing double loop stainless steel.
