Dental and Soft Tissue Surgery

Exposing Impacted Teeth as Part of Orthodontic Treatment

It is not uncommon for teeth other than wisdom teeth to be impacted, or blocked from entering the mouth. Fortunately, your orthodontist and oral surgeon can bring the impacted tooth through the gum and into the correct position – giving you a beautiful healthy smile.

Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADS)
Temporary anchorage devices (TADS) are occasionally used for a short time during orthodontic treatment. TADS are small titanium screws that orthodontists use to help reposition teeth. TADS are usually placed by the oral surgeon in their office. When the TADS are no longer needed, they are removed and the site is usually fully healed in a couple of days.

Frenectomy​

Frena are small folds of tissue located in the mouth: under the tongue, inside the upper lip, inside the lower lip, and connecting the cheeks to the gums. A frenectomy is a simple procedure performed in the oral and facial surgeon’s office to loosen the frenum’s connection and extend the range of motion in that part of the body.

 In addition, Dr. Shrewsberry is trained to perform many different types of dental and soft tissue surgeries including, but not limited to, the following:

-Apicoectomy

-Dental Hemisection and Root Amputation

-Soft Tissue Grafts

-Gingivectomy and Gingivoplasty
