FAQ:  Tooth Eruption



Pictures: Super Eruption

Question:
Erupted canine tooth: I've had an erupted canine tooth for years it sticks over a baby tooth that never came out.

I want to finally deal with it. What are my options on how to treat? ... Visitor from Phoenix

Answer:
To assure no damage occurs to the periodontal attachments and more importantly, the jawbone in the affected area, a consult with a Periodontist would be worthwhile.

Some Periodontists have the talent for "moving" a tooth without orthodontic treatment.

Otherwise, braces may be needed for a short time.

Ideally, seeing a Periodontist first.... to get the best advice from a "tissue level" perspective would be worthwhile.

The periodontist can refer you to an orthodontist, that he/she may have worked with in the past, with other patients who have had your treatment need.
