Expert Impacted Tooth Exposure in Chester County

When your orthodontist suggests specialized care for impacted canines or other teeth, rely on the expertise of Chester County Oral Surgery & Dental Implants. Early intervention is key to achieving optimal oral health outcomes.

What Are Impacted Canines?

An impacted canine is a tooth that is stuck and cannot erupt into its proper position in the mouth. They are one of the most common types of impacted teeth, second only to wisdom teeth.

Impacted teeth can cause discomfort and misalignment, especially during childhood and adolescence. In collaboration with your orthodontist’s, our oral surgeon will provide a comprehensive treatment plan to regain a confident smile.

Expose & Bond Procedure

The expose & bond procedure at Chester County Oral Surgery & Dental Implants involves our experienced oral surgeon, gently exposing the impacted tooth by removing gum tissue and bone.

Following this, your orthodontist’s referral ensures a collaborative approach, with a small bracket guiding the tooth into its proper position. This joint effort corrects impacted canines, ensuring a healthier and more confident outcome. Untreated impacted canines may lead to misalignment, discomfort, and potential damage to surrounding teeth and nerves.

Collaborative Approach with Your Orthodontist

Our commitment to your well-being includes a collaborative effort with your orthodontist. We value and respect their recommendation, working seamlessly with your existing dental care team to ensure the most effective and personalized treatment plan. Our oral surgeons and your orthodontist will communicate closely, combining their expertise for the best possible outcome.

What To Expect After Expose & Bond Treatment

Following the expose & bond procedure, a smooth recovery period is anticipated, lasting from a few days to a couple of weeks. Initially, you may experience mild discomfort, swelling, and bruising. Our dedicated team will provide detailed post-operative instructions for a comfortable recovery. Every patient’s recovery is unique, and our support is unwavering at every step.

Expose & Bond Treatment Costs

Finances should never be a barrier to your oral health. Our team is dedicated to helping you access the care you need. We’ll work closely with you to navigate insurance coverage and explore financing solutions, ensuring a seamless financial aspect of your treatment.
