Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on correcting irregularities of the teeth and jaw, especially the ways in which they align and fit together. The end goal of all orthodontic treatment is to provide you with a healthy, balanced, functional, and attractive smile. When you visit Periodontics of the Desert, our team can help you get ready to receive your orthodontic treatment.
It is important to determine if your teeth are periodontally stable prior to receiving orthodontic treatment. Most orthodontic treatments involve the use of appliances which are attached to your teeth. These appliances may be removable or permanently bonded to your teeth. Because of the attachment of the appliance to the teeth, it is important to make sure that your teeth and gums are healthy before as well as during your treatment. Our periodontists and team can conduct a thorough examination of your mouth to determine your overall oral health, and provide you with any necessary treatments.
We encourage you to contact our office to make an orthodontic preparation appointment, and discuss any concerns you may have with our dental professionals. We are always happy to help.
