Surgical Exposure of Impacted Teeth Treatment in San Diego

What is a surgical exposure?

An impacted tooth is when a tooth gets blocked as it is erupting, or pushing its way through the gums. To correct this problem, Dr. Kwok will work with your orthodontist to locate your impacted tooth and expose it by attaching an orthodontic bracket to the tooth  This will allow your orthodontist to guide the hidden tooth into the correct position.

If you have any questions about whether a surgical tooth exposure is the right treatment for you, please call us today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Kwok
