Canine tooth behind teeth? fixes?

User Level:

Posted by: LGnetwt  (7 years ago)
I have my canine tooth that has been lead behind my other teeth alignment. I have been terrified of the dentist since when I was a child.. I have an appointment coming up after a few years I can't let anything get worse. I was just wondering if there were any fixes for this. If at all possible just removing the tooth and getting an implant I don't want to use all this hassle I am very self conscious about how my teeth look and it is holding me back in life.

An orthodontist or a qualified experienced general dentist will give you few treatment options, including ortho (braces), etc, but in order to do so, you need to be properly evaluated (x rays, full mouth exam, space analysis). This will not only show if you have any other existing conditions in your mouth, also how easy or difficult your case will be. Not a bad idea to go for a second opinion if the treating dentist does not give you multiple options, as there are many options in modern dentistry.

The problem is lack of space. The solution will probably be orthodontics with premolar extraction. You NEVER sacrifice an intact canine.
