This dentist retained our case selection services to treat a patient with a complex family dental history. The orthobrain team worked diligently with the dentist and staff to create an individualized, 2-phase plan to address all of the patient’s dental concerns.
Treatment Goals: Straight teeth beautiful smile. Mom concerned because of family history of ectopic canines.
Question: Is this patient ready for tx? If so, will it phased? If not how soon for tx? Mom trying to make a decision soon.Treating Dentist
… Generally speaking, as you remembered, impacted canines are familial. Hence, I typically will do a 2 phase treatment. Phase one for 9-12 months with expanders, phase 2 when permanent teeth erupt and we use braces or aligners. I suggest ordering a Diagnosis and Treatment Plan Only and we can help you with needed orthopedics, as indicated. you may schedule an appointment with an orthobrain chairside technician to help with the process if needed.orthobrain orthodontist
