In most of these cases, the primary cause of the problem is related to the jaw structure. There are many situations in which a surgical orthodontic plan is the “ideal” treatment, but other options exist that will provide a less than optimal result. Many times, surgical treatment plans will yield a better facial profile and fix the bite, while the non-surgical option will fix the bite without a positive change in the profile. These decisions are best made by the patient based on the desired outcomes of the treatment.
We are now welcoming patients and parents into our waiting rooms. There is no need to call us when you arrive. We are, however, asking that everyone wear face coverings upon entering, regardless of vaccination status. We continue to take precautions for prevention of spreading COVID-19. We remain vigilant with our sterilization and disinfection protocols and we will continue taking additional precautionary measures as well. We still ask that you reschedule your appointments if the patient has been symptomatic in the last ten days or has been recently exposed to someone known to be infected with COVID-19.
We will continue utilizing only half of our operatories to maintain significant distance between patients. We ask that all of our patients thoroughly brush their teeth prior to their appointments to limit the use of our toothbrushing area. As always, we will continue to be committed to giving each of our patients the best possible experience!
Thank you for your understanding!
