A perfect smile is possible for any patient. Here at Providence Dental, we practice interdisciplinary orthodontics to make healthy smiles accessible to those patients who have more complicated needs.
For some patients, wearing Invisalign® invisible braces or metal braces alone won’t be enough to fix their dentition. Dr. Bollu helps these patients analyze and diagnose their dental problems. He will sit with them and design a highly organized plan that will generate the results that they want.
Providence Dental has associations and friendships with all of the experts necessary to reconfigure your smile. Many of them are right here in our office, waiting to treat you to the most advanced orthodontic solutions.
Interdisciplinary orthodontics is essentially a team effort involving various specialists to transform a smile. Some of these specialists include:
- Restorative dentists.
- Oral surgeons.
- Maxillofacial specialists.
- TMJ specialists.
Dr. Bollu uses interdisciplinary orthodontics when he feels a patient can benefit from a more extensive body of experience and training.
You and your specialists will create a treatment plan that is as conservative and affordable as possible. We believe that your treatment should suit your lifestyle and your preferences while giving you an incredible smile.
Some of the techniques involved in interdisciplinary orthodontics are discussed below.
Basic Orthodontic Treatment | Your orthodontist will use braces and appliances to shift the teeth until they reach their most ideal positions. He will adjust the bite to increase its functionality.
Restorative Dentistry | Tooth replacement or fortification may be necessary during oral reconstruction. Restorations include dental crowns, dental implants, fixed bridges, etc.
Periodontal Treatment | Receding gums can be reversed by a periodontal specialist. Periodontal treatment will preserve the health of your teeth, jawbone, and gums.
TMJ Treatment | A TMJ specialist may recommend appliance therapy or lifestyle changes to patients suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder. The muscles and joint of the jaw must coordinate to work well.
Oral Surgery | Severe jaw asymmetries and imbalances may require surgery for optimal function and appearance.
No matter how severe the problem may seem, there is a solution at Providence Dental. Call today to schedule your consultation.
