You may have seen an orthodontist to straighten your teeth and were informed that, he or she cannot complete your treatment properly without some surgical interventions. Perhaps your teeth are severely crowded and extractions were recommended to create space for alignment. Maybe the canine tooth is stuck and malpositioned and does not have enough room to come in. Perhaps you have a poor bite due to both teeth position problems and jaw size discrepancies. Or perhaps some teeth in extreme poor positions and they are too difficult to correct by braces only.
Dr. Kazemi collaborates with orthodontists routinely to provide procedures that complements their efforts to achieve proper results. These include:
- Selective extractions
- Canine exposure
- Wisdom teeth extraction
- Corrective jaw surgery
- Placement of orthodontic anchorage devices
