Orthodontic Treatment of Double Maxillary Canine Impaction on the Palate, Georgia Orthodontic Care

Maxillary canine impaction can be either on the labial or palatal side, which palatal impaction is more common than that of the labial one.  The orthodontic treatment of impacted maxillary canine can be very challenging.  It usually involves surgical exposure of the impacted tooth, followed by orthodontic traction to guide and align it into the dental arch. Bone loss, root resorption, and gingival recession around the treated teeth are some of the most common complications. Shown here is the case with both palatally impacted canines.

Orthodontic Treatment of Anterior Dental Crossbite, Georgia Orthodontic Care

Anterior dental crossbite is defined as palatal positioning of the maxillary anterior teeth relative to the mandibular anterior teeth when the jaws are closed. It can involve single tooth or multiple teeth. The causes of crossbite can be hereditary, delayed tooth eruption or an abnormally erupted tooth. It is recommended to have it fix as soon as possible to prevent irreversible damage to permanent teeth and to normalize jaw growth.

Lower Incisor Extraction in Case of Tooth Size Discrepancy, Georgia Orthodontic Care

In certain cases such as anterior tooth size discrepancy due to narrow maxillary incisors and/or large mandibular incisors, slightly class III canine relationship with crowding on lower anterior, etc. lower incisor extraction can be a good orthodontic treatment option.  It can result in good facial esthetics and well occluded posterior teeth.  Shown here is the result of a case with lower incisor extraction where patient has smaller upper lateral insiors.
