Is This Possible? Canine Tooth Too Far Back

User Level:
Patient
Posted by: MattRyan  (7 years ago)
I have this canine tooth that is too far back. I have uploaded a picture so you can see exactly what's going on. I would really love for a way to get my smile back. It was wonderful if I do say so myself :)

Anyway...

Here is what I've been told so far.

Option 1: I could get my canine removed and get an implant. But, the dentist highly recommended I not go that route because the canine is such a major tooth.

Option 2: I could get special orthodontics that raised my entire bite. So that the orthodontics could bring the tooth forward and not get in the way of my bite. Then when it was back in place they would lower my bite back to where my teeth would be touching like normal.

I'm hoping there is another option. If you have any helpful info, please let me know what you think.

Thanks for any feedback you send my way. :)

there is an option of using posterior bite planes with slight expansion as well to create space for the canine.. and then move the canine forward.......
when posterior bite planes are used... the back teeth would bite on them... and the front teeth remain in an open bite temporarily...just for the time enough to move the canine forward.........
in such a situation there is no actual movement of the back teeth in raising the bite, and then going back to normal bite

Hi There.

Your dentist is absolutely right. Why get an implant when you can save your own tooth? This is an easy ortho case and can be done with less invasive ortho procedures. Ask him about invisalign or esixx retainers. You can easily remove the appliance and clean your teeth and they are cosmetically more acceptable.
You can also get ceramic brackets cemented.
In my opinion extraction is not a solution when orthodontic treatment is possible.

I had braces my self for 3 years and my case was way harder then yours.

Yes it is more expensive to get braces instead of a "quick implant solution" but it is worth it in the long run.

Keep us posted on what you decided to do.

Contrary to what RDH Anna says, translational movement of a canine that distance is VERY difficult ortho and probably cannot be done with removable aligners. Full brackets, possibly supplemented with Temporary Anchorage Devices (temporary implants), would be necessary.

As complex as this is, it is far better to treat this way rather than with extraction and implants.
