Are your teeth taking forever to move during braces? Sometimes additional forces are needed to move your teeth in the desired position. Whether it be intrusion, extrusion, and bring teeth forward or back, orthodontic mini screws may be the answer.
Orthodontic mini screws are a great advent to orthodontics. With the orthodontist recommendation, we plan where we need to put the mini screws. We numb you up the same way you would get a filling. The mini screws are gently placed within minutes. Minimal discomfort and minimal swelling occurs. Get your teeth moved in a timely manner! After treatment is complete, removal of the Ortho mini screw is gently removed.
While most procedures are done with just local anesthetics, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and sedation is always available for anxious patients. All procedures are done by our board certified periodontist. Our dentist in our state of the art facility always uses the most advanced technology including instaneous, comfortable digital X-rays. Each treatment room is equipped with high definition flat screen televisions and with WiFi accessibility to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
