Orthodontic Exposures & Extractions

As part of orthodontic treatment, teeth may require extraction or buried (impacted) teeth may need exposure (surgical uncovering).

If a tooth requires exposing the overlying tissues are surgically raised away from the tooth and some soft tissue and bone removal is carried out in order to expose the tooth adequately.

Both our Oral Surgeons have a specialist interest in surgery related to orthodontics and work closely with the orthodontic team at Royal Cornwall Hospital.
