The presence of included canines is an abnormality frequently found in clinical practice. Our work highlights the most important characteristics of that defect, emphasizing the different therapeutic options available. The advantages of the surgical tunnelization described by Crecini are exposed. A clinical case is presented in which that technique has been chosen to treat a left impacted vestibular maxillary canine. Satisfactory aesthetic and functional results have been observed when this surgical approach is used.  (Rev Esp Ortod. 2006;36(1):037-048)

Key words:
Included canines. Impacted canines. Tunnelization.
