Expose and Bond Reviews
When your teeth become impacted, it's important to visit an oral surgeon to prevent them from causing problems for your oral health. Wisdom teeth and canines are the most common teeth to become impacted. Whereas wisdom teeth can simply be removed to avoid infection, root damage, and more, canines are vital to the bite, and it's important to treat them inside the mouth. The best option for treated impacted canines is an expose and bond procedure.
An expose and bond procedure involves your oral surgeon working hand in hand with your orthodontist to expose the impacted tooth or teeth in the gums. Once your oral surgeon has carefully removed whatever is blocking the tooth from growing in, your orthodontist attaches a bracket and chain to bring the tooth into position carefully. You can learn more about the procedure and the treatment experience by listening to our patient stories below.
