If one of your canine teeth never came down and you were told it was impacted and you needed oral surgery could this have anything to do with the condition of your other teeth which are very yellow?
Orthodontics and oral surgery would be needed to "pull" the impacted canine into position. This would have nothing to do with color of the teeth. If you are worried about yellowing of the teeth, this could be corrected with many different types of bleaching. My best recommendation would be after completing the braces and oral surgery, bleach with a approved bleaching system with your dentist. J Holsworth, RDH Answer An impacted tooth is never related to all the other teeth becoming yellow. The only exception is that if the impacted tooth is causing pressure on the rooth of another tooth, then a greyish color might appear on that tooth.

Canine teeth are also dogteeth, fangs or (in the case of those of the upper jaw) eye teeth, are relatively long, pointed teeth. Canine teeth are present in carnivores and o…mnivores. Their primary usage, especially in carnivores, is stab through layers of flesh and hold down struggling prey in order to tear it apart. They are occasionally used as weapons. In omnivores, the canine teeth are much shorter and their usage is more for slicing up meat.

to chew stuff
How much does it cost to have an oral surgeon expose impacted canine teeth and put brackets and chains on them?
In addition to considering the cost of such a procedure, you need to think about the considerable hygiene issue you're suggesting. How do you plan on eating food with such har…dware present? How do you plan on effectively cleaning such hardware?. From Muse314159 -. Chicagoborn, this is an oral surgery procedure. It is not a cosmetic or body jewelry question. The canines might be impacted, and there is a procedure to cut (expose) the cuspids, attach a gold button to each tooth, and a small chain that is then connected to the rest of the stuff. A small elastic thread is fixed through a loop on the chain, and as the cuspid is pulled into position, the thread is moved up to the next link and the dangling link cut off. Once the tooth is in position, it can be aligned for the rest of the orthodontic treatment.. I've heard everything from $1500 per tooth on up to expose and ligate (add the bracket and chain).
The canine teeth help to chew food in the human mouth. The canineteeth are the longest of the teeth and are good for tearing food.The canine teeth are located in both the uppe…r and lower jaw.
They are situated on the bottom row of teeth. The four incisors are the front four, then the canine teeth are either side of these four.
Because they need to rip the flesh of other animals.
well i think originally the canines were meant to rip the food from our hands. i.e. when we eat meat you can rip the meat off the bone. So basically the canines get hold of th…e food for the molars to crush. x.
the lateral incisors are on the side towards the midline of your face and the 1st premolars (bicuspids) are toward the outside
It really depends on the position of the impacted canine - this needs to be confirmed radiographically. If it is very ectopic (misplaced) it can be left and your dentist asked… to review it every 6/12 months. However if it is left and it is in close proximity to the lateral incisor there is a risk it can resorb (eat away) the root of the lateral incisor (if it already hasn't started to do so) resulting in the lateral incisors root which is already short being compromised and the tooth eventually falling out. It essential to get an orthodontic examination. In the UK if you have an impacted tooth you would qualify for treatment under the NHS. Hope this help PS I'm an orthodontist
I guess it's just time to play the waiting game, I'm sure it'll come in eventually, though if you are particularly concerned about it, you could always visit your dentist and …request an x-ray or something to see if / when it'll come in.
Because it looks like dogs' teeth.
Yes, you can. Many times an orthodontist will have teeth removed to make more room for the remaining teeth.
A friend recently told me that asians do not grow pointy canine teeth like caucasians I have truly never thought about it Do asians have canine teeth?
They most certainly do. Your friend is not doing you any favors by spreading weird information.
You can call canine teeth transitional teeth. They are what you consider to be baby teeth, a child will pull their canine teeth between the ages of 6 and 11, and permanent can…ine teeth will grow.
