Impacted upper canine teeth
This 15 year-old girl had two upper permanent canine teeth that had become impacted. She was treated with fixed braces following a surgical procedure to uncover the impacted teeth and place gold chains on them. The brace was used to apply traction to these teeth and bring them down into the mouth. Once this was achieved, the brace further detailed the position of her teeth and corrected the bite. Treatment took 2.2 years.
