Teeth Extractions for Braces Marietta - Banner

Teeth extractions for braces in our office near Marietta can benefit the facial profile

The practice of tooth removal as a precursor to orthodontic treatment has been the source of lengthy conversation within the dental field. One school of thought is that extreme measures should be taken to preserve all permanent teeth in order to maintain the most natural facial contours. Some even say that tooth removal for orthodontic treatment can adversely affect ones appearance.

In our experience serving the needs of teens and adults with orthodontic treatment, any changes that occur to the face because of teeth extractions for braces have been positive. More often than not, our patients from Marietta and surrounding areas notice no difference at all in their facial aesthetic.

The recommendation to remove teeth before braces is made only after careful consideration. We collaborate with reputable orthodontists on the treatment of our patients' smiles, and remove teeth after x-rays, pictures, and models are analyzed, after we have thoroughly assessed the size of teeth and jaws, and considered the current position of the lips.

Patients who have confirmed crowding of teeth at the onset of treatment generally experience no change in profile after the completion of treatment. When the position of front teeth are viewed in x-ray after treatment, their position, and thus that of the lips, changed little, if at all.

In contrast, patients who have moderate to severe crowding before orthodontic treatment, but in whom no teeth are removed, can experience the protrusion of lips as front teeth are pushed forward in the alignment process. If the patient began with protrusive lips, even a slight opening at rest, this advance in forward movement can create a "buck-toothed" appearance. Cases where lips do not close normally are best treated with teeth extraction. Even a palatal expander could be insufficient for creating room in the mouth for all teeth.

Fuller lips because of dentition can be aided by extraction followed by orthodontic treatment in which retraction, or the pulling back, or front teeth. The slight backward movement, as opposed to forward movement, of front teeth, can make the profile more attractive.

Patients we have treated with extraction and orthodontics report feeling very happy with their overall result. If you seek a more aligned smile, we can help. Contact Thirty-two Dental for your consultation.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
