Impacted teeth are when teeth fail to break through the gum or properly descend into their proper position. The canine (upper eye tooth) is the second most common tooth to be impacted; since these teeth play an important part in proper bite alignment, our doctors will work closely with an orthodontist to get the tooth to the proper place.
Tooth exposure includes gently removing the covering gum tissue and exposing the crown in order for the orthodontist to place a bracket on the tooth for the orthodontic procedure.
We make sure that you are comfortable and relaxed during the procedure. With the help of your orthodontist an impacted tooth can be brought to the ideal position after surgery.
Restoring your gums provides an effective seal and natural defense against bacteria on the tooth roots and jawbone. It can rid any heat and cold sensitivity in the teeth. Correcting your gums also protects your tooth roots from fracturing or becoming loose. Grafting can also help strengthen thin gums. This helps to support a tooth properly and prevent gum recession and bone loss.
