Orthodontic Tooth Uncovering
Richland, WA


The canines, or eye teeth, erupt into the mouth between the ages of 11 and 13. Sometimes they come in the wrong position, and if not corrected, can damage the roots of the adjacent teeth or even push them out of position. Though it's most common in the canine teeth, other teeth in the mouth can have the same problem.

This procedure uncovers the impacted teeth so the orthodontist can move them into proper position. We start by placing anesthetic in the surrounding tissues, then push back the gum to expose the tooth. Occasionally, some of the bone surrounding the crown of the tooth is removed.

Once the tooth is exposed, either your periodontist or orthodontist will apply a bracket and chain to the tooth. Afterwards, patients may experience some discomfort and swelling, for which precautions will be recommended. Ongoing appointments with an orthodontist will be necessary.
