FAQ:  Impacted Teeth

  • I am going to do some teeth extractions. One of them is an impacted tooth. According to my dentist, she said that is possible that the impacted tooth can turn out to be a good tooth if an adjacent tooth, that is pushing the tooth, is extracted first. Do you think it is possible to save the impacted tooth? I am also scared to not get used to the flipper that will be used until I get the implant I will need....Visitor from New Bedford     (answer)

  • Impacted upper eye canine extraction: After unsuccessful orthodontic treatment to erupt it in its proper place I now have the unpleasant option of extracting the impacted canine and placing an implant. The orthodontist said that the canine cannot be extracted all of it because it is severely impacted (the obvious question is why she said it could erupt when I first consulted her). She said that it has to be cut into pieces and much of the root will remain in the pallatal area. My question is this: what happens with the nerve of the remaining tooth? Will there be any trouble with the implant and will it (the remaining root) continue to do whatever it does? ...Visitor from Athens Greece     (answer)

  • Impacted Canines: On a Panorex the impacted canines of my 12 year old (dental age 2-4 years behind) have roots almost fully grown and with crowding are grazing the lateral incisor root. Looking at the angle, some have said they will straighten out perhaps IF room is available but it is not. One orthodontist says pull canines and another says use an expander. Each puts down the other strongly so I will go for a 3rd opinion. Meanwhile, my question is: if the canines intersect the root of the lateral incisor, is that instant damage or is there a chance to expose and pull down the canines still? How quickly does root resorption take? ...Visitor from PA     (answer)

  • I am 16, going to be 17 in a few months, and I have two impacted incisors. And I have been told that I have to go see the orthodontist, for braces. I really don't think that braces are going to help, unless I have to have some surgery first. Please let me know what exactly would need to be done. And if I have to get braces, how long will I need to wear them? Visitor from PA     (answer)
