Impacted Canines

What are Impacted Canines?

This happens when one or both of your canine teeth fail to come into the mouth and instead remain in the alveolar bone (the ridge of bone that contains the tooth sockets) in an ectopic (abnormal) position.

What causes canine teeth to become impacted?

  • Extra teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Unusual growth

We utilize the most current technologies to bring the canines into the patient’s mouth utilizing the least invasive methods.
