Orthodontics today has the ability to transform a number of conditions affecting your smile. However, situations exist in which orthodontic treatment can’t begin or progress without surgical intervention.
When trauma, disease, or growth issues are present, you may be referred to a specialist before continuing with your treatment in orthodontics. Gilbert, Phoenix, Mesa, and Casa Grande area oral surgeon, Dr. Wilson, has the training and experience needed to perform pre-orthodontic treatment.
Pre-orthodontic treatment may be especially helpful for patients experiencing:
- Extra teeth
- Teeth in the wrong position
- Teeth growing in the wrong direction
- Teeth blocking other teeth from growing in
- Cysts or tumors
Often these are conditions that need to be managed before your orthodontist can begin moving your teeth to accomplish a straight, beautiful new smile. Pre-orthodontic treatment is appropriate for patients of all ages who have a condition preventing the proper placement of braces.
