There are several options for impacted or retained teeth that have not reached the gums yet.
These impacted teeth, often canines, premolars and wisdom teeth, can be surgically removed. In certain cases these teeth can also be saved by surgically uncovering them and attaching chains to them in combination with orthodontic treatments.
If root canal treatments failed, apiectomies can be the last resort to save the tooth.
A surgical opening is made that targets the root tip. Following this opening the root tip including the inflammation is removed. In most cases a tooth that would have been extracted otherwise can be saved.
Wisdom teeth are the last teeth in the jaw and can sometimes cause troubles. Whenever these teeth cause trouble they can be surgically removed. Reasons for removal can be Caries, Dentitio difficilis (difficult eruption), Pericoronitis (inflammation), disposition as well as orthodontic reasons.
In some cases teeth can be translated from one position of the mouth to the other. Considering the right timing for the root growth is key to determine if a transplation surgery can be done. Usually wisdom teeth are transplanted into the first molar position.
As additive devices for orthodontic movements mini implants can be utilized. Temporary anchorage devices usually only persist during the orthodontic treatment and will be removed after the treatment is finished.
