Natural eruption and conservative surgical exposure with orthodontic alignment have minor effects on the periodontium. Impacted canines treated surgically and non-surgically had a higher prevalence of pulpal changes than the control canines. Ultimately, the choice of treatment may depend on the clinical indications, the patient's and the orthodontist's preferences.
