As periodontists, we can work with your orthodontist to ensure you receive the healthiest smile possible.
Sometimes the periodontist needs to work with the orthodontist to help achieve beautiful and healthy smiles. Surgeries such as periodontal plastic surgery and implants can be done in conjunction with braces to ensure optimal results. We can also help with tooth extraction to make space in patients with crowding, or uncover teeth that are impacted in bone.
Canine Exposure – This surgery involves opening a flap and removing small amounts of bone in order to bond an orthodontic “button” to a tooth that is not properly positioned in the arch. Once the button is bonded to the tooth, the orthodontist can move this tooth into the appropriate place.
