Retained Baby Tooth and Impacted Canine

Question

Hey, the last question I asked was incomplete so I am re-sending the question that was intended.

I am a 19-year-old man, I have had an impacted canine for a few years. My adult tooth lays in the top of my gums really far up there.

My baby tooth is still present. Is there anything you can do for me?

Answer

My best advice would be to extract your baby tooth, get the impacted canine exposed and pulled into the arch with an appliance.

Read the page on mechanotherapy of impacted canines (mechanotherapy).

You should visit an orthodontist and ask for a treatment.
