Your Route to Orthodontic Treatment Success
As part of your evaluation for orthodontic treatment ( Braces, Invisalign® or Other Orthodontics ) and your road to a beautiful smile, your orthodontist may advise you to see a Periodontist. This referral is to ensure that you do not have any underlying periodontal gum problems, thin gums or need for implant replacement of missing teeth.
Orthodontic treatment is used to straighten your teeth, fix your bite, etc. These each involve the movement of your teeth through the bone. When this happens, it is important that you do not have anyunderlying gum disease or infection that can compromise the success of your orthodontic treatment.
