Canine/Impacted Tooth Exposure

Canine/Impacted Tooth Exposure

An impacted tooth exposure is a treatment by which the un-erupted tooth, usually a canine, is exposed to the oral cavity. Depending on the circumstances, an orthodontic bracket is often bonded to the impacted tooth at the time of exposure. This bracket will be used to help an orthodontist move this tooth to the planned position in the mouth.
