What is IPR?

IPR is short for Interproximal Reduction, which is when your orthodontist utilizes the correct tools to adjust the size and shape of your teeth (mostly on the sides of your tooth, where it touches another tooth). You may require some IPR for a few different reasons: if your upper and lower sets of teeth do not fit together well, if the teeth do not lay adjacent to each other well, or in some cases of mild crowding. IPR does not hurt, and is a very quick and seamless procedure.
