Family Dental Care
Are Extractions Necessary?
At Family Dental Care, prolonging the youthfulness of our patients’ smiles for as long as possible is our top priority. Combining our level of expertise with state-of-the-art technology and time-proven methods, we are confident that you will be fully satisfied with the quality of orthodontic treatment you receive while in our care.
While we don’t practice an “always extraction” philosophy, we don’t practice a “no extraction” philosophy either. There are three basic reasons for extractions:
Understanding that each patient is different and requires different methods of treatment, Drs. Meckler & Moses will perform a thorough facial examination to determine if a tooth extraction is necessary. For some patients, alternative treatment methods are effective, such as the use of elastics to move teeth back or growth modification devices to reduce crowding.
We will work with each patient individually to create a personalized treatment plan to ensure you receive the beautiful, straight smile you desire.
For your convenience, we are open 6 days a week and evenings.
Please call our office for a complimentary orthodontic consultation, 216-661-2422.
