Expose & Bonding of Teeth Example
These photos show the exposure & bonding of an Upper Right Central Incisor
(
UR1).

The
UR1 had not erupted; a bracket was attached to the tooth.  The first 2 photos
show the
UR1 a week or so post-op.  The suture (blue) securing the end of the
chain to the labial sulcus can be seen.  The patient is wearing a removal appliance
that has a prosthetic tooth (to fill the space of the
UR1) together with 2 springs
that help to create space to allow the
UR1 to come down in to.

The rest of the photos show the
UR1 slowly coming down into the space that has
been created / maintained.

My thanks to
Steve Newell for the photos.
