Orthodontics involves the movement of teeth. At your initial appointment, the orthodontist will carefully and thoroughly evaluate your mouth and facial structures to help develop a treatment plan that will work with for you. Impressions of the teeth may be taken at the initial appointment so that the bite can be more closely evaluated.
It is very important that your teeth and gums are healthy prior to starting orthodontics and so your provider will request a dental clearance prior to beginning treatment.
Our orthodontist has extensive training in treating patients with craniofacial abnormalities and works closely with our cleft lip and palate team.
