I have two of my baby canine teeth still present

by Kristine
(New York)

I have two of my baby canine teeth still present on the maxillary side and the two permanent cuspids have displaced them self between the bicuspids. I was told by my orthodontist that I should remove the baby tooth (which is fine) and the first premolar. Is this common practice and would this dramtically affect the appearance of the face?

Also, there is going to be a huge gap in between and I worry that it might make me more self-conscious about smiling than I already am.

Please help. Thanks in advance.

Removing Teeth for Ortho
by: Sharon B., RDH

Hi Kristine,

What your orthodontist is describing is very common and standard orthodontic treatment. The first premolars are often removed when there is not adequate spacing to align the other teeth aesthetically and functionally. Doing so will make room for the teeth to be moved. Don't worry, your orthodontist knows exactly what is going to happen and will use the other teeth to close the open spaces where the teeth will be pulled. Some of us just have larger teeth and smaller jaws that when they get together cause this type of treatment plan to be needed.

It is very rare that you still have your baby canine tooth present. I would like to know if these canines are causing any discomfort to you. If they are nit causing any troubles, it is okay for the teeth to be present. Medical billing solutions
