Surgical Exposure Teeth for Braces

At Highland Hills Dental Centre, we offer specialized surgical procedures to expose impacted teeth as part of orthodontic treatment. Our skilled team is dedicated to ensuring a successful and well-coordinated approach to achieving your desired smile.

Understanding Surgical Exposure for Orthodontic Treatment

In some cases, teeth fail to erupt properly due to being impacted within the jawbone. This can prevent proper alignment and function of the teeth. Surgical exposure involves uncovering and positioning these impacted teeth, allowing orthodontists to guide them into their proper places using braces.

Why Surgical Exposure is Necessary

Surgical exposure of impacted teeth is typically recommended when:

Impacted Canines Canine teeth, also known as cuspids, are critical for proper bite alignment and function. Impacted canines can lead to crowding, misalignment, or bite issues.

Aesthetic Concerns Exposing impacted front teeth can improve both the appearance and function of your smile.

Orthodontic Alignment Properly positioned teeth are essential for achieving an optimal orthodontic outcome with braces or aligners.

The Surgical Exposure Process

Our surgical exposure procedures are performed with precision and care, ensuring a coordinated approach with your orthodontist:

Initial Evaluation We assess your orthodontic needs and take X-rays to determine the position and condition of impacted teeth.

Surgical Procedure During the procedure, the impacted tooth is exposed by creating a small incision in the gum tissue and, if necessary, removing a small amount of bone covering the tooth.

Bracket Placement An orthodontic bracket is attached to the exposed tooth, allowing your orthodontist to guide the tooth's movement using braces.

Collaboration with Orthodontist Throughout your orthodontic treatment, we work closely with your orthodontist to ensure the tooth is guided into its optimal position.
