Dental Braces and Retainers – Common Treatments
If you have crooked teeth and/or a misaligned bite (an underbite or overbite), there are a variety of treatments that can help straighten your teeth, including dental braces and retainers offered by San Jose orthodontics by Top Best *8* San Jose Dentists Specialists Centers – Jonathan H. Kim, DDS, Inc.
Ask your dentist to refer you to an orthodontist, a dentist who specializes in correcting irregularities of the teeth.
The orthodontist at San Jose orthodontics by Top Best *8* San Jose Dentists Specialists Centers – Jonathan H. Kim, DDS, Inc. will ask you questions about your health, conduct a clinical exam, gather impressions of your teeth, take photos of your face and teeth, and order X-rays of your mouth and head. An appropriate treatment plan is made based on the analysis of the gathered information.
In some cases, a removable retainer will be all that’s necessary. In other rare cases (especially when there is an extreme overbite or underbite), surgery may be necessary. In most cases, however, braces will be needed.
