Exposure of Impacted Tooth

Align Impacted Tooth

A tooth may not erupt normally and is found under the gums and in the jaw bone. Many times the tooth is in a unusual position and its potential to erupt on its own is diminished.

Your orthodontist may refer you to our office for exposure of the impacted tooth so that he/she can move the tooth into the proper position. This is usually a simple procedure and may involve bonding a bracket on the impacted tooth so that the orthodontist will have access to the tooth.
