Extraction of High Canine tooth

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: Nicolehendricks  (5 years ago)
Hi,

I have a canine tooth that has been pushed up , i am aware that it is because there is not enough space in my mouth for it to move down.

I would like to know if an extraction is possible , and if so what is the process ?

I have already consulted a dentist and she told me it is possible, but i would like to get a second opinion.

Thanks,
Kelly

Canines are almost never extracted because of crowding. Instead the adjacent premolar is extracted, and the canine is moved into position.

Canines have the longest roots in the mouth. It is very traumatic to extract a canine. I have only done it once for esthetic reasons, when the patient absolutely refused to consider orthodontics.

The canine tooth is one of our strongest ones. In many cases they rather remove the tooth #4 beside it.
With this move they make space for the canine.
Obviously every case is different.
Without an X-ray or a consultation it's hard define which solution is the best.
If you have an X-ray then show it to us by uploading .
