Before any orthodontic treatment, your family dentist should make certain that all cavities have been treated and the health of your gums and underlying bone are free of periodontal disease.
In addition, your dentist or an oral surgeon will remove any teeth that our Doctor prescribed to correct your bite. Your family dentist should also schedule cleaning and cavity checkup visits during your orthodontic care. We would like to reinforce the need to keep your regular visits with your family dentist.
Please contact our office if you have any questions. The timing of your treatment is very important. You and your child may or may not be ready for treatment. Therefore, a consultation will allow us to better understand your needs.
