Gum disease and options for straight teeth #DrSoftTouch
Without knowing the severity of your gum disease, it's difficult to say what options you have to straighten your teeth. Perhaps after you get your gum disease under control, porcelain veneers would be an option for you. But again, this depends on several factors such as the amount of bone loss, tooth mobility, etc. Don't give up! Get your gum disease under control and I'm confident you'll have options to get you smiling again. I hope this helps and just click "save" under my name to have me answer more of your questions in the future.
Gum Disease and Orthodontic Treatment
However, not every case with gum disease can be taken up for orthodontic treatment. Case selection depends on several factors such as the severity of the disease, amount of existing bone loss, tooth mobility etc. As an alternative, all ceramic crowns to splint teeth and give an aesthetic appearance is definitely an option you could consider.
