Most of us are not born with perfectly straight teeth; and some of us are born with teeth in the wrong position or missing altogether. The most common tooth to erupt improperly is the upper canine. It is not uncommon for one to remain stuck under the gum, requiring surgical exposure to access the tooth and pull it into proper alignment with orthodontics. San Diego periodontist like Dr. Beck is an expert at helping your tooth erupt into the proper position. Our 3D conebeam CT machine helps us identify exactly where the tooth is so that the proper procedure is performed, ensuring that the tooth is surrounded by healthy bone and gum.
