Impacted canine

Hello!

I have an impacted upper canine and the tooth beside it is getting pushed back. I still have a baby tooth in its place. As much as possible, I want to avoid braces. Is there any other way to correct this? Please help.

Thank you in advance for any advice you can give me.

Hi She_he!

You need surgical exposure followed by an orthodontic traction to bring your canine down all the way.

Hello:-)

My daughter who is 19 years old have the same problem. The dentist extracted her baby tooth and her canine. She got braces to pull her teeth together to fill the gap. It's an affordable solution.
