Effective Treatments for Impacted Teeth
Saving Impacted Teeth
Dr. Haron is often able to save an impacted tooth from extraction by performing an expose and bond procedure. To do this, he’ll first have you come into our office for a CBCT scan of your mouth, which delivers 3D x-ray images of your teeth from virtually every possible angle. From these scans, he can plan your expose and bond procedure for a future visit. He’ll also coordinate care with your orthodontist, who provides valuable assistance at multiple points during your treatment.
When you return to our office, Dr. Haron will make you comfortable with nitrous oxide and/or IV sedation, which is also called “sleep sedation.” These anesthesia options will keep you pain-free throughout your procedure, and you likely won’t remember any part of it. He’ll then expose the affected tooth or teeth by removing a small portion of your gum tissue, in addition to a small amount of bone surrounding the teeth. With the teeth visible, he’ll then use small braces to connect (bond) the newly exposed teeth to other adjacent teeth for stability. The final repositioning of your teeth is typically performed by your orthodontist.
