- When we analyze a patient and identify their orthodontic problems, we look for potential underlying causes of their malocclusion.
- Other treatment may be necessary as an accompaniment to the orthodontic treatment we prescribe. Therefore, our treatment may include referring that patient to their physician or other specialists.
- We may also do certain things in the office to try to retrain the patient’s musculature to function properly.
- Measures that correct the contributing factors are just as important as those taken to align the teeth. If left unchecked, they will contribute to relapse after treatment.
