Orthodontic Exposures Of Teeth
Sometimes, a tooth will get “stuck” and not come in on its own. In these situations when teeth fail to erupt properly, they are called “impacted.” While impacted wisdom teeth are typically removed (since wisdom teeth are not necessary), other impacted teeth may need help to get them to erupt and grow in properly. Since early treatment is desirable to ensure the best outcome, surgical exposure of impacted teeth is often done to help children. At New York Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, we have a tremendous amount of experience in working with children. Even though exposure of impacted teeth is typically a simple surgical procedure, we understand the unique emotional challenges for young children and their families. That’s why our oral surgeons help to foster a calm, supportive atmosphere. You can rest assured that your child will receive the very best care from a compassionate team of professionals who are dedicated to making the experience as easy as possible.
How is an impacted tooth exposed?
Orthodontic exposure of impacted teeth often requires a team effort between an oral surgeon and an orthodontist. Our surgeons will work closely with your orthodontist to develop the most effective treatment plan for your child. Treatment will vary for each patient according to his or her needs and may include simple exposure of the tooth; the removal of baby teeth or extra teeth that may be blocking the eruption; and the attachment of brackets and wires designed to guide the tooth into proper position. In some cases, an orthodontist will use braces to first create a space for the impacted tooth to occupy once it has erupted. Dr. Stein and Dr. Koslovsky will discuss all the details with you and answer any questions you may have about your specific situation.
What should I expect with orthodontic exposure of teeth?
In most cases, orthodontic exposure of impacted teeth is a simple surgical procedure that can be performed in our offices with the patient comfortably sedated. Our oral surgeons will meet with you to discuss all the details of your procedure and answer any questions you may have before treatment.
How do I get started with orthodontic exposure of teeth?
Dr. Stein, Dr. Koslovsky, and our staff would be happy to discuss orthodontic exposure of impacted teeth with you. Please call 212-888-4760, or schedule an appointment online to arrange for a private consultation at our office.

DR. STEIN'S PATIENTS SPEAK OUT
Dear Dr. Stein,
Dr. Stein, we wanted to extend a heartfelt thank you for the excellent care you provided for our daughter Ana. From the moment we met you during our first consultation, we knew Ana could not be in better hands. We truly appreciate your kindness and professionalism. She still talks about your letting her listen to music! See you during the summer for the next exposure! :)

You did an amazing job on my teeth. I could not have imagined that one day my teeth/smile would look this great. Thanks again for all your hard work. :)
My dentist, whom I regard highly, recommended Dr. Mark Stein for a complicated extraction that she would not perform. I was scared of this procedure, but Dr. Mark Stein made it easy—a walk in the park. The staff was extremely friendly and the entire experience was beyond my expectations. I give Dr. Stein an A+.
Best place ever to go get your wisdom teeth pulled. They were so pleasant as soon as you met them and made sure you were comfortable and even followed up after hours at home to make sure I was ok and had no more concerns. I didn't feel a thing. Dr. Stein and his staff are great!
Dr. Stein is a wonderful surgeon. I had a true fear of having teeth pulled, to the extent that I have had fillings and then root canals done on my wisdom teeth. Please let me advise don't do that. Instead, visit Dr. Stein. All of his work for me has been painless, fast, friendly, and professional. I recommend Dr. Stein without reservation.
I was referred to Dr. Stein for extraction and a dental implant. He was extremely kind, listened to my concerns and explained everything thoroughly. The procedure was totally painless and I had no problems afterwards unlike my other dental experiences. I would highly recommend Dr. Stein to anyone needing an oral surgeon. A+++
Dr. Stein is an outstanding oral surgeon. He is extremely friendly and gentle, called me the evening after my surgery to make sure I was doing OK, and took plenty of time to explain what he was doing and what to expect. I recommend him highly.
Dearest Dr. Stein & Wonderful Staff Members,
I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you all for getting me in so promptly for my consult, then for the fast appointment, and finally for the professional courtesy. You truly made me feel very comfortable and I did not want it to go unnoticed.
Thank you…from the bottom of my heart. You have changed my life, making each and every day a reason to show off my beautiful smile. I appreciate all that you have done. I am reminded of your hard work, patience, compassion and confidence every time I look in the mirror.
Thank you so very much. Because of you, I can put my past to rest and smile bright into my future...
Dr. Stein is a brilliant doctor and surgeon, who is highly professional and caring. He is hard working, and is truly committed to his patients. He practices cutting edge medicine, and is highly respected by his peers.

DR. KOSLOVSKY'S PATIENTS SPEAK OUT
I know the thought of having a tooth extracted doesn't exactly bring calm and serenity to mind; however, my experience with Dr. Koslovsky was just that! I felt so comfortable with Dr. Koslovsky, he is a master of his work. Dr. Koslovsky does an amazing job of preparing you for what is to come during the appointment! I cannot recommend Dr. Koslovsky enough, such a pleasant experience.
Great surgeon and extremely dedicated to his patients!
I cannot say enough incredible things about Dr. Koslovsky. It has been a little over 2 years since my surgery and to say I am happy with the results would be an understatement. I am a better version of myself, I no longer am self-conscious to speak without thinking people are staring at my under bite. Dr. Koslovsky is professional, personable, thorough, extremely knowledgeable about what he does, and trustworthy.
Dr. Koslovsky might be the best oral surgeon I've ever had. Did a sensitive bilateral surgery and followed up. Constantly answered all my questions. Amazing doctor.
Dr. Koslovsky provides excellent care and is very pleasant to interact with.
