A 14-year-old female presented with ectopically erupted upper canines and she has a Class I molar relation on both sides. First premolar extraction was planned to correct the ectopic position of canines. Segmental (TMA) titanium molybdenum alloy T-loop was used to retract the canines into an ideal position in the upper arch. Post-treatment results showed a correction of ectopically erupted canines, bilateral Class I molar relation maintained, and inclination of incisors improved. At the end of treatment, the patient showed a pleasing smile with an improved smile arc.
