Orthodontic Procedures

There are times that, even with braces, permanent teeth are delayed in their eruption.  In order to speed up treatment time and allow for these teeth to erupt and become part of your smile, a small procedure is performed in order to attach a bracket to the tooth so that your orthodontist can guide it into the right place.

Another common procedure that may be needed while in braces is a frenectomy.  A frenectomy involves removing a small piece of gum tissue that may be causing gaps or movement between teeth.
