What Is Oral Surgery for Orthodontics?

Your dentist or orthodontist may refer you to an oral surgeon for procedures that may assist your treatment.

In some cases it is beneficial to extract primary and sometimes permanent teeth to alleviate crowding and make more room for the other teeth in the mouth.
Temporary Anchorage Devices
Titanium posts that are similar to dental implants can be placed in the jaw and used to help shift the teeth into proper alignment.
Expose, Bond, and Bracket
An expose and bond procedure involves “exposing” the impacted tooth by lifting up the gum to expose the tooth structure, and then “bonding” a small “button” to the exposed tooth and connected via a chain to the existing wire in order to begin the process of pulling the tooth down into the correct position.
