CASE REPORTS OF SURGICAL EXPOSURE AND ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT OF IMPACTED PERMANENT TEETH
 
Abstract
Impacted or unerupted permanent teeth have many problems in making a diagnosis and treatment plan in dental clinic. There are several methods to treat impacted teeth. The combination of surgical exposure and orthodontic traction is usually the treatment of choice in cases with impacted teeth. Two cases are reported, which were treated with surgical intervention and orthodontic movement. and one case is treated with orthodontic movement alone. To improve esthetic problem and maintain periodontal health, We should avoid loss of attached gingiva in surgical exposure, and excessive orthodontic force during the traction of the impacted tooth.
