FAQ:  Gingivitis

Is Gum Disease Contagious?

    Gingivitis and Orthodontics: My son's previous orthodontist became mentally unstable and is no longer practicing.

    I went to a new orthodontist who suggested removing all of my son's braces (he's 4 months into phase 2) and getting a proper cleaning (he has gingivitis) and then restarting the braces again because of his dirty teeth.

    Does this seem extreme? ...Visitor from IL

    Not at all.

    If you child is not keeping his teeth clean and has severe gingivitis, I would recommend the same.

    Allowing his new orthodontist to replace the braces with his prescription, in the long run, will improve treatment efficiency and possibly reduce his overall treatment time.
