Alignment of the Teeth and Jaws
To have a straight smile, it’s necessary to have a healthy relationship between the upper and lower jaws. When harmony exists between the jaws, it allows orthodontic treatment to align the teeth in the most optimal manner possible.
Without addressing issues with the jaw, it can make straightening teeth difficult and result in an imbalance of the bite. That’s why Dr Mun works with Dr Alan Trinh, aligning your jaws to achieve facial balance, smile aesthetics and full function of the teeth. The procedures Dr Trinh performs include
- Routine extractions
- Wisdom teeth extractions
- Dental implants
- Exposure and bonding of impacted teeth
If Dr Jong feels that any dentoalveolar (minor oral) surgery is necessary, he will discuss these concerns with you before beginning any type of orthodontic treatment. He will refer you to Dr Alan, who performs procedures on-site and works closely with Dr Jong to achieve optimal results in the most painfree manner. For more complex cases, e.g. jaw surgeries, these will require referral to an oral maxillofacial surgeon
Benefits of Surgical Treatments
Correcting jaw alignments can provide our patients with optimal results, less trauma to the jaw joint (temporomandibular joint, or TMJ) and prevent concerns like abnormal tooth wear.
If you have a tooth that is stuck, it can be surgically exposed with exposure bonding. Occasionally, this option may be required before you can have further orthodontic treatment.
With dental implants, Dr Alan places the titanium implant into the jaw. After the area has healed, a restoration can be placed on the implant such as a bridge, crown or denture to restore your smile.
Although referrals are most appreciated, it is not necessary for a referral to see Dr Trinh
