The second most commonly impacted (stuck) teeth, after the wisdom teeth, are the canines, or the teeth next to your two front teeth. Unlike wisdom teeth, which can be extracted without causing any problems with the rest of your teeth, extracting the canines could significantly affect the health, function, and beauty of your smile.
When the canine teeth are impacted, our dentists can provide effective treatment to help them properly erupt in the mouth. This treatment usually involves orthodontics and, in some cases, oral surgery.
In general, the sooner that treatment is performed, the more effective it will be in the long run. If you or your child has impacted canine teeth, contact Village Place Dental in Warren today to schedule your consultation with one of our dentists. You’ll be glad you did!
