Orthodontic Exposures

Macomb Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, located in Shelby Township, Michigan, specializes in orthodontic exposures to facilitate proper tooth eruption and alignment. Led by Dr. Joseph Hildebrand, our experienced team collaborates closely with orthodontists to ensure optimal outcomes for patients requiring orthodontic interventions.

Orthodontic exposures are commonly performed when a tooth fails to erupt properly due to obstruction or impaction. In such cases, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon can assist by creating an opening in the gum tissue, allowing the tooth to emerge and align properly with the surrounding dentition.

When you choose Macomb Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery for orthodontic exposures, you can expect a collaborative approach between our team and your orthodontist. Dr. Joseph Hildebrand will work closely with your orthodontist to understand your specific orthodontic needs and develop an effective treatment plan.

During the orthodontic exposure procedure, our skilled team will administer local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Dr. Joseph Hildebrand will make a small incision in the gum tissue, creating access to the impacted tooth. In some cases, a small amount of bone may need to be removed to fully expose the tooth. Once the tooth is fully exposed, your orthodontist can guide it into its proper position using braces or other orthodontic appliances.

Following the orthodontic exposure, our team will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions to facilitate proper healing. We will work closely with your orthodontist to ensure coordinated and seamless care throughout your orthodontic treatment.

At Macomb Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we understand that orthodontic procedures can be overwhelming for some patients. Our compassionate team will address any concerns you may have, providing clear communication and a supportive environment to alleviate anxiety and ensure a positive experience.
