Benefits and Limitations
Orthodontics is a service that provides an improvement in the appearance of the teeth, in general function of the teeth, and in general dental health. Teeth, gums, and jaws are an intricate body part and may have an atypical response to treatment. If good oral hygiene is not practiced, tooth decay and enlarged gums can result. Joint discomfort and root shortening are observed in a small percentage of cases. Teeth change throughout our lifetime and there can be some movement of the teeth and some change after treatment. I understand that my diagnostic records may be used for educational and training purposes. I have truthfully answered all the above questions and agree to inform this office of any change in my medical or dental history. In addition, I authorize Chapel Hills Orthodontics to perform a complete orthodontic evaluation.
