Times Where Oral Surgery Aids Orthodontics


Posted on 12/20/2018 by Tessa Smith-Greisch
Times Where Oral Surgery Aids OrthodonticsLearning you need braces is a traumatic experience for some. The idea that you will have these things on your teeth for any period of time is not something most people look forward to.

Some people have to face another obstacle when they get orthodontics. They may also need to have oral surgery. It is another thing that people may not want, but if they understand how it can help their orthodontics, it makes a little more sense.

The Goal of Orthodontics

When people talk about the goals of orthodontics, there are different viewpoints. The orthodontist has the goal of helping a person achieve the smile the person deserves. They know that the orthodontics can fix any problems a person has with the alignment of their teeth.

People looking at the person with the orthodontics know that it can help the person in some way and understand that it was probably necessary. The person wearing the orthodontics may know that it will help them in the long run, but they start counting the days until the orthodontics are taken off the day they are put in place. None of these people worry about the idea of adding surgery to the orthodontics.

The Benefit of Surgery

Because the goal of the person wearing the orthodontics is to get them off as soon as possible, surgery is something they need to know about. One of the main benefits of surgery is the ability to reduce the amount of time needed for the orthodontics.

Surgery can remove some of the obstacles that may be required in order to make the orthodontics work. A surgical procedure that cuts into the alveolar bone will reduce the time needed for the orthodontics. Surgery to remove teeth can provide the space needed to properly align the teeth.

The key to the use of surgery to aid orthodontics is to have some type of plan. When the right plan is in place, it will help keep the amount of time the orthodontics are in place to a minimum while still achieving the look that everyone wants.
