Impacted Canines

As children loose teeth and replace those with adult teeth sometimes the canine teeth can get trapped. The most frequent tooth to get trapped is the canine, but sometimes the premolars will need help with eruption. Your orthodontist will refer you to one of our doctors to help mobilize this trapped tooth in conjunction with braces. There are a variety of methods that can be used from the simple window technique all the way to a temporary anchor screw to help guide the tooth into position. We are ready to use any technique that your orthodontist might need.
