Impacted Canines

An impacted tooth is obstructed or “stuck” under the gum line and does not naturally erupt into its proper place. The most frequent impacted tooth is a third molar or wisdom tooth, however, it may also happen in canine teeth. Next to the incisors, canine teeth are found in the corners of the arch.

By the age of seven, the American Association of Orthodontists advises that children receive an orthodontic assessment, which enables us to track your child’s teeth eruption and detect impactions early

If your kid does develop an impacted canine, a minor surgical treatment to help the tooth emerge is suggested. By creating a tiny flap in the surrounding gum, we will surgically expose the tooth. We will either let the tooth emerge on its own or affix an orthodontic bracket to it to assist guide its descent once it has been revealed.

Impacted canines may be allowed to erupt and/or directed to the most optimum position in your child’s mouth with early identification and a combination of surgical and orthodontic treatment.
