A 50 year old patient was referred to Dr. Silvers by another general dentist for an orthodontic consult.
The patient had seen a few orthodontists who advised him to have a complicated surgery and then extensive orthodontic treatment to straighten his crooked teeth. The patient wanted his jumbled teeth to be straightened — to be able to clean his teeth and gums and to feel and look better. Being a working older adult, married with college-aged children he wanted improvement to his appearance and function but was not interested in extensive surgery.
Dr. Silvers listened to the patient’s concern and found a solution that was appropriate to his needs. Dr. Silvers was able to do orthodontic treatment without involving surgery.
The patient was thrilled with the cosmetic dentistry improvement provided by Dr. Silvers.
