When you have one or more teeth that don’t break through the gums as expected, they are often referred to as impacted teeth. There are a few options available when it comes to treating an impacted tooth. Impacted teeth removal is an option in many cases, especially with wisdom teeth that no longer serve a practical purpose. However, if it’s a canine tooth that is impacted, our dentist will likely recommend other treatment options if possible. One such option is to create space within the mouth to accommodate this important tooth. Orthodontics may be used to shift your teeth around to create a gap where the impacted tooth can erupt as needed. In some cases, surgery may be required to assist the impacted tooth in erupting.

These are just a few of the things we can do to help you address your problem.
