This procedure assists with the eruption of malpositioned teeth for orthodontic treatment. Normally, all of our permanent teeth have erupted by the early teenage years. There are times some teeth do not erupt fully in the mouth, commonly known as impacted teeth. An impacted tooth can have a bracket bonded to the tooth enabling the Orthodontist to guide the tooth safely into the mouth over a period of time. Leaving a tooth impacted could cause resorption of adjacent teeth as well as the development of cysts and tumors.
