Canine Exposure for Orthodontics

 

Impacted or blocked teeth often need assistance to enter the mouth properly. Exposure of such teeth is an oral surgery procedure whereby Dr. Clark surgery places an orthodontic bracket onto the affeted tooth, so tat the orthodontist can slowly pull into place.

Impacted teeth are sometimes obvious to the naked eye, but in some instances, an –x-ray is necessary to identify the extent of the impaction. Many times, there is an impacted canine tooth where the baby tooth remains in the mouth.
