When one or more of your canine teeth fail to erupt or come out, they remain hidden or impacted under the gum line. Impacted canines usually happen when there is a lack of space for the teeth to come out due to overcrowding or the presence of extra teeth. Having impacted canines usually cause discomfort ranging from pressure on the adjacent teeth to severe pain in the nerves. If you have been suffering from the consequences of impacted teeth, turn to Braces by Dr. Ruth. We offer an array of effective treatment options to relieve you from the discomfort of impacted canines and give you something to smile about.

Treatment Options for Impacted Canine
Canine teeth in humans are used to properly tear food and guide the movement of the lower jaw when chewing. If your canines are impacted, it is likely that you also have a misaligned bite or chewing difficulties. Fortunately, Braces by Dr. Ruth can solve all problems associated with impacted canines.
Some of the most common treatment options we recommend include:
- Uncovering the buried tooth and bringing it into its correct position
- Removing the impacted tooth completely
- Transplanting the impacted tooth to its right position
Exposing an impacted canine often requires extracting the adjacent teeth and introducing orthodontics appliances such as traditional metal braces or ceramic braces. Moving an impacted canine is usually a slow process, but Dr. Ruth may be able to help you speed up the process with Propel technology.
