What is canine exposure?
Canine exposure is a specialized dental procedure designed to facilitate the eruption of impacted canines. This treatment is typically performed on children aged 11 to 15 and involves carefully revealing the impacted tooth, encouraging it to assume its rightful position within the dental arch.
Canine exposure is a collaborative effort between periodontists and orthodontists and helps encourage favorable outcomes.
Benefits of canine exposure
Guides impacted teeth into their correct position, leading to improved dental alignment.
Impacted teeth can cause discomfort, pain, and even gum inflammation.
Optimal Oral Function
Properly positioned canines contribute to better bite function, chewing, and speaking.
Prevention of Complications
Impacted canines can lead to misalignment, cysts, and potential damage to adjacent teeth.
