What is the Exposure of Impacted Teeth?
It is quite common for wisdom teeth to become impacted and have trouble growing into their normal position. However, it is also possible for this to happen to other teeth. These teeth can be brought into position by an oral & maxillofacial surgeon through the process of exposing the impacted teeth. In some situations, our surgeons may glue a small bracket to the tooth, allowing your orthodontist to pull this tooth into the arch as part of your orthodontic treatment plan.
