Gummy Smile Reduction

We like to provide non surgical gum lifts to the patients who display excess gingival tissues. Prior to the advent of modern techniques such as the use of small anchors (TADs) and intraoral soft tissue lasers, it was only possible to reduce gummy smiles via surgical techniques. Today, Dr. Yelizar can predictably reduce excess gum tissue and in turn create beautiful smiles that are balanced.

Medit 3D Scanner

Medit 3 D scanner system

With high speed and intelligent cameras, the 3D scan of your teeth is accurate. The best part is, with the Medit Scanner, no more putty impressions of your teeth are necessary, so the unpleasant feeling of filler in your mouth is gone! We can use the data provided from the scan to customize the brackets, wires and your whole treatment.


Temporary anchorage devices

Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADs) or mini-implants had revolutionized orthodontic treatment. When used correctly, they enable Dr. Yelizar to move teeth in a way that was very tough or almost impossible before. They create points of anchorage to allow for movements that were impossible with braces alone. Movement such as closing unwanted space or moving the midlines to either side can substantially improve the desired results.
