Impacted Canine Teeth
An impacted canine tooth is a tooth which fails to erupt into the mouth and remains buried by bone and gum. Impacted canine teeth
usually occur in the top jaw and are commonly located in the roof of the mouth.
How can impacted teeth be treated?
Your Dentist or Orthodontist may suggest a procedure called an exposure and bond of the tooth. This involves uncovering (exposing)
the tooth and attaching a small chain (bonding) to the tooth which can then be used to slowly pull the tooth into the correct position.
