An impacted tooth is simply a tooth that is stuck and unable to erupt into function. Patients frequently face problems with impacted wisdom teeth. When this occurs, the wisdom teeth are simply extracted. However, if one or more of your canine teeth becomes impacted, they will need to be exposed by your oral surgeon in order to move them into bite. Canine teeth are an essential part of your bite and smile, which is why every attempt to save them is taken, including exposing them.
Exposing and bracketing an impacted tooth is a very straightforward surgical procedure that is performed by an oral surgeon. For most patients, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and a local anesthesia is used to make the surgery as pleasant as possible. Following the procedure, it’s essential to follow all of the aftercare instructions given by your oral surgeon in order to ensure a speedy recovery. If you have an impacted tooth, make sure to contact our experienced oral surgeons at Oral Facial Reconstruction and Implant Center to see if exposing them is right for you.
