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. We recognize that cleaning your teeth with braces is a more difficult process; hence, your visits with your primary care dentist are extremely important in keeping your teeth and tissues healthy. During the course of your orthodontic treatment we recommend you visit your dentist every 4 to 6 months, or more frequently if your dentist advises, for cleanings and exams. As part of your customized treatment plan, Dr. King may prescribe the extraction of one or more teeth. Your family dentist or an Oral Surgeon may perform these extractions.
Some patients with severe bite problems may even need orthognathic surgery in addition to orthodontics. If orthognathic surgery or implants are needed Dr. King work closely with a number of advanced surgical teams and will refer you to a surgeon who can best meet your specific needs.
Please contact our office if you have any questions. Your health is of utmost importance to us!.
