Can past orthodontic work be corrected?

Our skilled team evaluates your case to determine suitability for the procedure. We consider your unique oral health history and goals to recommend the best path forward.

Will the results of correcting past orthodontics be long-lasting?

Yes, results are long-lasting. Patients may need to wear a retaining device to maintain the position of their teeth. For patients with TMJ dysfunction, this may be an appliance that halts the progression of joint disease. Patients with sleep apnea may retain their teeth in an appliance that favorably positions their tongue and jaws to open and stabilize their airway. Others may only need a simple orthodontic retainer. If a retaining device is needed, we will advise you on the one that's best for you.

What techniques may be employed in corrective procedures?

Dr. Samadian employs advanced techniques tailored to each patient's unique situation. These techniques may include orthodontic adjustments, minor realignments, and specialized treatments to enhance your smile's appearance and function.

Will the procedure be painful?

We prioritize your comfort at all times. During your initial consultation, we'll discuss pain management strategies and answer any questions you have about the procedure.

How do CT scans assist in correcting issues from past orthodontic work?

CT scans are invaluable in identifying issues stemming from past orthodontic work. By providing detailed images of the craniofacial structures, CT scans aid in assessing misalignments, bone density, and potential complications. This information guides the corrective measures, ensuring a comprehensive and practical approach to address any lingering concerns from previous orthodontic treatments. However, the role of CT scans in correcting past orthodontic work may vary based on individual cases. A comprehensive evaluation, including clinical assessments and personalized medical advice, is recommended for precise diagnosis and treatment planning.
