Fiberotomy Treatment After Orthodontics

What is a Fiberotomy?

There are fibers below the gum line that go around teeth and hold them in position. These fibers are stretched during the course of orthodontics. When braces are removed, the rubber band-like fibers tend to want to pull teeth back to their original positions. This would cause straightened teeth to go crooked again.

Why Do I Need a Fiberotomy?

A fiberotomy is performed to detach these fibers around the teeth. It is usually done around the end of the course of orthodontics and is a very effective technique to help prevent teeth from returning to their original positions.
