The intervention is painless and fast
The inclusion of the canine occurs when instead of erupting at the right time (12-13 years) is retained in the palate , causing an alteration in the dentition, with permanence of the temporal canine.
To solve it, it is necessary to perform the fenestration of these pieces, whose objective is to eliminate the bone and the mucosa around the canine to release it , so that the crown of the same is visible and the orthodontist can perform the traction of the tooth.
The intervention is painless and fast , in Maxilodexeus we perform this technique in a minimally invasive way, under local anesthesia, to improve the postoperative period.
The canines, or fangs, are the teeth that most frequently present rash problems after the wisdom teeth, some do not erupt and remain included in the bone.
Are canines important?
Canines are very important teeth of our dental arch. They are very strong teeth that direct to the mouth in their movements and define the canine prominence that has functional and aesthetic repercussion, reason why it is fundamental to realize the fenestration to obtain its eruption.
What are the causes of the inclusion of canines?
The canines develop very high in the maxilla, and to get to erupt have to go a long way at a time when, in addition, the rest of the adjacent teeth already tend to have erupted. Certain local problems can hinder the path that the canine must travel to reach its position:
- Supernumerary teeth
- Lack of space due to premature tooth loss
- Congenital absence of lateral incisors
- Dental transpositions
Benefits of Canine Fenestration
With this treatment we can count on one of the most important teeth in our mouth and avoid the need to perform an extraction of the tooth retained in the future and its future replacement by some type of prosthesis or implant.
Having a tooth retained can lead to consequences such as:
- Reabsorption of nearby teeth.
- Cysts formation
- Infection of pericoronary sac.
- Lack of a tooth when it is lost in a temporary canine.
When should you opt for Canine Fenestration?
Generally the eruption of the canine teeth occurs around 13 years but it is advisable not to wait and perform an x-ray of the mouth (orthopantomography) at 8 or 9 years to check that the child has all the teeth and rule out obstacles to the rash .
How is the intervention performed?
At Maxilodexeus we take care of all the details, starting with the planning, where we analyze the angulation, position and the relation with the adjacent teeth to be able to carry out the fenestration safely, until the coordination with the orthodontist for its traction.
After a good planning, our experts work in a coordinated way to guarantee the best treatment . Our surgeons are responsible for making a window in the gum, which is known as fenestrar, to then remove the bone and mucosa that prevent the eruption of the tooth, making the crown visible.
The procedure lasts about 25 minutes, is completely painless and there is no edema or swelling in the postoperative period . After the intervention, it is necessary to make a soft diet during the first 2-3 days.
Once the stitches are removed from the fenestration, the orthodontist places a bracket on the tooth in order to pull it progressively until it takes its place in the dental arch.
Postoperative of Fenestration of canines
The recovery after Fenestration of canines is short and not very painful . Thanks to the use of minimally invasive techniques of Maxilodexeus, the postoperative period is shorter and more comfortable, only slight discomfort will be noticed after the intervention.
The swelling will be minimal, but it is possible to notice irritation on the palate during meals. To overcome more postoperatively, it is possible that a combination of anti-inflammatory and painkillers is prescribed.
