How to Treat Impacted Canines with Orthodontics

There are many ways to treat impacted canines in the mouth, but the most prominent is orthodontics, which helps in addressing all the problems associated with them when diagnosed early and in the initial stages of damage or extraction of these affected canines while they are in the milk teeth stage, to ensure the growth of the permanent teeth straight and vertically, not in an inclined or horizontal position.

Position of the Impacted Canine Tooth

Straight teeth easily integrate with the jaw tissues, but inclined teeth require some therapeutic and cosmetic procedures, such as vertically inclined teeth which can easily be realigned to their correct position in the mouth using braces. However, horizontally inclined teeth require more effort, preparations, procedures, and also a long time. After all this, the adjacent teeth may become disordered and fall over time, so extracting them is the healthiest and most appropriate option to maintain the stability of the mouth and the health of the teeth.

It’s possible for all four canines to be impacted, and in other cases, only two may be impacted, whether in the upper or lower jaw. It is most common for only one canine to be impacted. In all the aforementioned situations, the adjacent teeth are at risk of damage, which is represented in their entrapment, posing a danger to them and the rest of the mouth contents. The comprehensive treatment for these cases involves installing braces and orthodontic wires that work on restructuring and shaping them in the cavity or creating space for each impacted tooth.

Types of Orthodontics

Doctors use orthodontics to treat various problems of many cases due to the existence of several types of it, including:

  • Metal braces for teeth.
  • Clear removable orthodontics.
  • Preventive orthodontics.
  • Functional orthodontics.
  • Surgical orthodontics.

The Importance of Orthodontics

There are many therapeutic and cosmetic techniques that can be used in treating dental problems, but some techniques are the most prominent and efficient, including orthodontics, which shows its importance as follows:

  • Improving the overall appearance of the teeth.
  • Giving the teeth the strength and hardness needed for their functional tasks, such as chewing food well and pronouncing words and phrases correctly.
  • Restoring the perfect smile to the person, which restores their self-confidence.
  • Improving the patient’s psyche.
  • Protecting the contents of the mouth from damage.
  • Preserving the rest of the teeth in the mouth from decay or the appearance of deformities on their surface.
  • Upper jaw orthodontics restores vitality and health to the front teeth.

Components of Orthodontics

Orthodontics always features a special technique that relies on tightening and pressing on the teeth until they are moved to their correct place in the mouth. The components of orthodontics that help make this happen include:

  • Wires.
  • Brackets.
  • Metal supports.
  • Bands.

Duration ofOrthodontics

Orthodontics is a technique that keeps the teeth steady in their place and reorganizes them in the jaw cavity through pressure for a long period, typically ranging from 12 to 18 months as an average duration for different cases. However, this duration may vary, either shorter than 6 months or longer than 30 months.

Maintaining and Cleaning Orthodontics

Like many different techniques used in treating and beautifying teeth, orthodontics requires constant care and attention to keep it intact during the period it is installed on the teeth surface. This can only be achieved by following the medical instructions associated with it, which include:

  • Brushing teeth daily as much as possible and trying to remove any deposits on its surface and on the teeth.
  • Cleaning the teeth and the spaces between them with dental floss or a toothpick to ensure the teeth remain clean and healthy, not prone to any damage.
  • Rinsing with medical mouthwash daily once to get rid of any bacterial deposits or infections spread in the mouth cavity.
  • Eating soft, easy-to-swallow foods that do not require chewing to avoid any pressure on the teeth and orthodontics, causing them damage.
  • Avoiding hard, tough foods or sugars and starches, and avoiding stimulants to prevent negative effects on the teeth and gums.

We offer advanced techniques for oral health care, including orthodontics at The Dental Center.

What After Orthodontics?

After installing orthodontics, it is expected that the teeth will gradually move towards their new position during the specified period until the desired result is completely achieved, and it is removed. To prevent the teeth from relapsing back to their position before installation, doctors use retainers that maintain the teeth in their new position until they are completely stabilized and do not move.

During this period, it is necessary to commit to brushing teeth well daily to prevent the teeth from decaying and the infection from spreading in the mouth again, causing more complications and risks, with the emphasis on eating soft, easy-to-swallow foods that do not require chewing and not neglecting to eat foods rich in vitamins and minerals, especially calcium, which restores the teeth’s strength and hardness.

Disadvantages of Orthodontics

Orthodontics has many advantages and professionally improves the appearance of teeth, eliminating all deformities and flaws in their structure. However, at the same time, it may harm them and cause some complications, including:

  • Damage to the enamel layer covering the teeth.
  • Wear of the teeth structure over time.
  • Appearance of white spots on the surface of the teeth.
  • Teeth turning yellow.
  • Decay of some teeth cavities in the mouth.

Orthodontics Prices

Orthodontics is among the most commonly used treatment methods by patients, not just recommended by

doctors, due to the quality of its results. The demand for it determines its prices, as does the nature of each case and its needs deciding the suitable raw material for it.

The difference in the price of each raw material causes a variation in the prices of orthodontics, as does the value of the dollar, which controls the price of all devices, tools, and materials used. Therefore, we notice that during the current period, the price of orthodontics varies between 10,000 and 30,000 Egyptian pounds.
