Patients who show a lot of their gums when laughing or smiling may have “gummy smiles.”
Traditionally, the only way to treat gummy smiles has been through invasive jaw surgery. Now, we can use Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADS) that are anchored to your jaw and connected to your braces or certain parts of your teeth to reduce the look of a gummy smile. This process is more efficient and more comfortable, too!
It is a safe and effective treatment option for patients who are looking to improve their gummy smiles and is offered here at Orthodontics LA.
