In some cases, your general dentist cannot place a dental crown, bridge, or implant until you receive orthodontic treatment. If teeth are too crooked or overcrowded, they may not be able to accommodate a dental restoration. Poor bites can also put the restoration at risk of premature wear and tear or even fracturing.
If you are visiting TinHan Orthodontics for pre-prosthetic orthodontics, Dr. Erik TinHan will work with your general dentist to create a customized treatment plan that keeps your smile on track for dental and orthodontic procedures. Our orthodontist will help stabilize the teeth and reserve space in your smile if a replacement tooth is needed.
Tooth decay, tooth loss, and tooth extraction can all weaken your smile and allow the surrounding teeth to shift out of place. To ensure that your smile remains properly positioned, Dr. Erik TinHan can provide a number of orthodontic procedures to stabilize your smile, including braces, spacers, separators, headgear, or a retainer. When you visit our office for a consultation, we will determine which method of treatment will benefit you the most and help you achieve your smile goals as quickly as possible.
