A different approach to traditional orthodontics
Traditionally orthodontics has been purely focused on straightening teeth by whatever means possible. This would usual mean pulling out several teeth in order to alleviate any crowding and then pulling teeth back to close the gaps. This would also mean straightening teeth without regard for the facial appearance and facial profile.
Lips are supported by the teeth so if you pull teeth back, lip support is lost resulting in a “flatter” facial appearance.What is the point of pulling teeth out and making the remaining teeth straight as possible if you end up with a damaged face?
At the Refresh Smiles Dental, while making the teeth straight and aesthetically pleasing is a goal, the priority is in creating beautiful faces and beautiful healthy smiles.
