Expose and Bond

Exposing and bonding a bracket on to an unerupted tooth helps move the tooth into a good functional & aesthetic position.

First, the patient will be sedated. Once the patient is comfortable and relaxed the doctor will proceed to make any baby teeth extractions if any are needed. The doctor will then proceed to expose the tooth with a laser in order to attach a small chain to the unexposed tooth. The other end of the chain will be bonded to a bracket. The last step is to close the gums with stitches. The stitches will heal and dissolve on their own over time.

The patient will have to visit the orthodontist periodically to adjust the chain and help expose the tooth. Sedation is included in the price.
