Share Abstract:

DO TEETH WANT TO BE STRAIGHT? A NONSURGICAL APPROACH TO UNERUPTED TEETH

John Jin-Jong Lin, MS, DDS

Pages: 248257
PMID: 16164108

Although some orthodontists believe that ectopic labially positioned canines may erupt without surgical exposure, many articles emphasize the surgical management of the nonpalatally impacted canine. In this article, the author discusses the treatment and results of 3 cases, with a total of 4 impacted maxillary canines. All cases were treated with a conservative approach and without surgical intervention. This nontraumatic, nonsurgical approach demonstrates the viability of conservative options for the management of unerupted teeth in carefully selected cases.
