Surgical Tooth Exposure
This is minor surgery to expose adult teeth that haven’t come through.
It’s a procedure that may be needed prior to orthodontic treatment so that your Orthodontist can move the tooth into the correct position. It’s well tolerated under local anaesthesia; however, if you’d feel more comfortable, the option to have a general anaesthetic is available.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
