Often, patients exploring orthodontic treatment wonder if it’s possible to only have their upper teeth worked on. The answer to that question is not a simple yes or no answer. You will have to consider certain factors, such as the alignment of the teeth, the bite between the upper and lower teeth, the position of the upper and lower jaw, and the overall gum health. In order to receive the best answer to the question, we recommend partnering with a skilled Board-Certified orthodontic specialist to assess your current situation and provide a recommendation that will address your specific concerns, but also improve the overall health of your teeth and gums.
