The path to straight teeth isn’t the same for everyone. Many patients need to have their mouths prepared before their orthodontic treatment can even begin. At High Plains Periodontics & Implant Dentistry, we’ll work alongside your orthodontist to ensure your teeth are ready for your braces or other options. With treatments to prepare you for Lubbock orthodontics, our periodontist will:

  • Create a comprehensive plan with your orthodontist
  • Make room in your smile for optimal results
  • Ensure you’ll love how your teeth look when treatment is complete
  • Strengthen your teeth
  • Shorten the amount of time you spend in braces

See Improvements in Your Teeth With Our Orthodontic Services

Because every smile is unique, sometimes you need the help of a specialist.  Whether you are healing from gum disease, or your orthodontist has determined you need a certain procedure before you start treatment, or you are replacing teeth with implants, our board-certified periodontist has the experience you’ll need for the best results.

We will evaluate your (or your child’s) smile using panoramic X-rays and 3-D scanning to determine what’s necessary for the most successful alignment of your smile. After our exam, we may recommend services such as:

  • Wisdom Teeth Extraction – If you are a teen or older adult, it may be necessary to extract these third molars before you start aligning your teeth. While not everyone has issues with their wisdom teeth, they can negatively affect your bite and cause other teeth to move out of place.
  • Recovering Impacted Canines – These are the sharp pointy teeth near the front of your mouth. If they didn’t grow in properly or completely, we can perform a procedure to recover them. If necessary, we may need to extract them so they won’t interfere with other teeth.
  • Tongue-tie Treatment – We do a simple procedure that loosens a tongue-tie to give it freedom of movement. As a result, nursing will be easier and more comfortable for babies and their moms. Older children will be able to enjoy their meals and speak with ease. It also helps the overall shape of a child’s mouth develop correctly.
  • Selective Extractions – Overcrowded teeth often cause alignment problems. We’ll remove any teeth that will get in the way of you achieving your perfectly straight smile.
  • Accelerated Orthodontics – With this procedure our periodontist removes part of your alveolar bone. This makes it easier for your teeth to shift, so it can speed up your orthodontic treatment.

As a finishing touch, you may want to see us after your orthodontic treatment is over. We can reshape your gumline and give it a more symmetrical look.

While it’s understandable to feel anxious about getting any dental procedure, we use a numbing anesthetic so you won’t feel a thing. We also have sedation options and comfort items like pillows and blankets to help you stay relaxed.

Let us give you the best possible results by providing Lubbock orthodontic assisted services. Call 806-507-6906 for an appointment. You can also schedule online.

Common Questions About Orthodontic Assisted Services

Is it necessary to extract teeth before orthodontic treatment?

While it isn’t always necessary to remove teeth before you begin your orthodontic treatment, it can address overcrowding issues in your mouth. This can minimize the amount of time you spend wearing braces, since it’s easier for your teeth to move into proper alignment. When you come in for a consultation, we’ll examine your mouth to determine if it’s necessary to remove teeth for easier orthodontic treatment.

How long does it take to recover impacted canines?

The actual procedure we’ll perform to recover your canine isn’t long at all, usually about an hour. However, we’ll need to work with your orthodontist to ensure your canine continues growing into place to ensure it’s ready for braces later down the road. This process can take up to six months to a year to fully complete.

Will my insurance cover orthodontic treatments?

Many dental insurance plans do cover a portion of the cost of orthodontics. We encourage you to check directly with your insurance company to determine your out-of-pocket expense. If you have questions about a specific insurance plan, our staff will be glad to help you in any way we can.
