Orthodontic/Periodontal Surgery

Often times when children or adults are being treated with orthodontic therapy, or sometimes even before orthodontic treatment begins, a specific problem requiring periodontal treatment needs correction.

When periodontal pockets or thin tissues are present, periodontal treatment is generally completed prior to orthodontic treatment to assure those problems will not advance during orthodontic treatment.

The exposure of impacted teeth or the removal of a frenum (frenectomy) will usually occur once orthodontic treatment has begun.

Periodontal procedures to improve esthetics are typically completed after orthodontic therapy is completed.
