Exposure and Bonding of Impacted teeth

Many times we have teeth that just can't get through our gums and into the correct position. This can be the result of  inadequate space for the tooth to move into, or perhaps something else is in its way such as dense bone or another tooth. 

With the help of your orthodontist, our surgeons can carefully expose the blocked tooth, remove the obstacles around it (as needed), and attach/bond a chain to the blocked tooth. Your orthodontist then can use the chain we've placed and gently pull on it to bring your tooth into the correct position.

Using our 3D imaging capabilities, our surgeons can provide you with a precise and safe exposure + bonding treatment right in the office.
