Here is the story of three impacted canine teeth that Dr. Nirenblatt saved by bringing them carefully into the mouth. Somewhere along their journey to the mouth they got tired and could not travel anymore. Two were hiding in the upper jaw and one in the lower jaw. They all made it into the mouth safely without damaging any of the other teeth. He also helped close the large diastema (space) between the front teeth. Did you know that the upper canine teeth frequently become impacted because they are the last set of the front permanent to erupt and they have the longest journey to travel?
