Canine or Unerupted Teeth Exposure
Sometimes teeth need surgical help to erupt on time
These are, typically, besides wisdom teeth, the upper canines. An orthodontist or general dentist would be the one that diagnoses these.
Hidden damage to the rest of your teeth set
The major concern with unerupted canines and teeth, including undiagnosed impacted wisdom teeth, is the gradual damage they cause to the rest of your teeth. While we don’t enjoy talking about the very scary and guaranteed damage when unerupted and impacted teeth go without you noticing, it’s important you understand the serious nature not getting diagnosed and treatment as soon a possible
Many people think they are suffering from regular headaches, neck pain and facial pain without knowing because unerupted teeth are deep in the gums. Over time and progressively causing greater teeth, your will probably be misaligned and you will be facing more serious issues like jaw bone infection and loss, and a host of potential infections that can spread around the ear, nose and throat, face and even upwards towards your brain. Unfortunately, there is only is only cure and that’s get them fixed and fixed asap.
A general dentist can diagnose impacted teeth or unerupted canines
Dr. Stewarts works with your general dentist and/or orthodontist (or works with a dentist and/or orthodontist in his network) to surgically expose these teeth, place brackets, and allow these to be guided into the mouth. These are moved similarly to the way teeth that are visible are aligned.
