We Can Help You Achieve Your Ideal Smile
Here at D’Ascoli Orthodontics, we care deeply about your dental health and personal well-being. We also understand that surgery is complex, hard on patients, and expensive. However, when a case is so severe and can’t be corrected through any treatment options, our orthodontist may recommend that you consult an oral surgeon for surgical orthodontics in South Lake Tahoe, CA & Surrounding Areas.
If your orthodontic treatment requires the expertise of an oral surgeon, Dr. D’Ascoli will formulate a personalized treatment plan, perform the necessary orthodontic preparation, refer you to an oral surgeon, and also perform your post-operative orthodontic follow-up. Rest assured, he will help oversee the entire process so you can feel at ease knowing you’re receiving the highest level of treatment and care.
Reasons to Consult With an Oral Surgeon
Surgical orthodontics is typically considered as a last-resort treatment option, but certain situations may arise where pursuing this path can produce your best result. Some common reasons our orthodontist may recommend oral surgery include:
- Restore jaw function to improve eating, speaking, or breathing
- Cleft lip/cleft palate repair
- Create the necessary space for incoming teeth
- Improve facial structure & appearance
- Help facilitate future orthodontic treatment
- Wisdom teeth extractions
- Improve open bite
- Reduce grinding or excessive wearing of teeth
Surgery Is Generally Not an Option Until Growth Is Complete
For women, this usually occurs by age 16 and for men, age 18. Because surgery is used to align the jaw, growth needs to be complete to ensure that the results of the surgery will not change. There are appliances that can be used to help the patient until they reach the age where surgery is an option. For children, we recommend they receive Two-Phase treatment to avoid surgery.
