Expose and Bond Reviews
When teeth are unable to emerge from the gums into their proper position in the dental arch, they are referred to as impacted. Impacted teeth can be very problematic for your health because they can lead to more serious issues, such as infection, cysts, tumors, root damage, and more. Canine teeth and wisdom teeth are the most likely to become impacted, but whereas wisdom teeth can just be removed, canine teeth are vital to the development of your bite and must be treated.
The most common treatment for impacted canines is an expose and bond procedure. Your oral surgeon works hand in hand with your orthodontist to expose the impacted tooth from the gums, and then your orthodontist attaches a bracket to bring the tooth down into its correct position carefully. You can learn more about the expose and bond procedure and the patient experience by watching the patient stories below.
