FAQ:  Protruding Teeth



Question:
I am 30 years old. I had a few problems like bad breath, bleeding while brushing and a little protruding teeth in the front, so I consulted a dentist who advised me to have deep cleaning with scaling and root planing.

They also advised me to have flap surgery. I have a doubt that my protruding teeth will go back by this flap surgery.... Visitor from India

Answer:
Flap surgery does not fix protruding teeth.

Teeth typically don't flare out on their own. An occlusal force (biting) is uausally involved. Some of the two most common causes of teeth flaring is bad occlusion (orthodontics) or gum disease that has caused teeth to "loosen" and become mobile.

Consult an orthodontist or prosthodontist for discussing what treatment procedures will produce the cosmetic and functional outcome you are looking for.
