As the orthodontist, Dr. Ryan can straighten the teeth that you have, but he is unable to significantly change the shape of teeth or help you grow teeth that are missing. This is where Dr. Ryan has experience in working with other dentists, periodontists, oral surgeons, endodontists, and other specialists to provide the most comprehensive treatment possible.
For example, if you have a “gummy smile,” orthodontics can help but may require cooperative treatment with a periodontist to achieve a superior outcome. Is one tooth in your mouth smaller than the same one on the other side? Dr. Ryan always makes sure that your restorative dentist is pleased with the final tooth position before finishing his treatment so that he can ensure your final results are foolproof.
If you have a space in your mouth and Dr. Ryan does not recommend to close it, he can refer you back to your dentist or other specialist to fill in the space with something that is most recommended for your mouth.
