Your : Your dentist certainly fix it if he or she has the training, however, if your insurance doesn't cover orthodontics it won't cover it!

West : West burke, many general dentists provide braces to correct crowded teeth. Unfortunitly, i don't know your dentist so it is impossible for me to know if they can provide braces for you. Regardless of whom is providing braces, if your insurance does not cover orthodontics (braces), it will not cover it wheather an orthodontist or a general dentist provides it for you. While some dental insurances provide some reimbursement for braces, many do not. Unlike treatment for a heart attack, almost all of dentistry is elective, a want not a need. Therefor, if you want straight teeth, financing may better help you achieve your desire. Hope this is helpful, michael i.

Coincidence: Your wisdom teeth may have very slightly contributed to your lower front crowding problem, but probably not. Your best option would be to see an orthodontist. If you had a heart problem your general physician could treat your heart, but not at the level of competence of a cardiologist. Insurance probably will not cover this. Ask orthodontist about payment plans. Good luck.
