Orthodontics is typically used to correct the appearance and function of teeth. Orthodontics can also improve hygiene, tooth wear, gum damage, joint and speech problems.
If you find yourself feeling unable to smile the way that you would like because you don’t like how your teeth look – whether this is because of crowding or something you can’t quite put your finger on, orthodontics may be a good option for you. There are many dental conditions that can be improved with orthodontic treatment. These include crowded teeth, a deep bite, overbite, missing teeth and impacted teeth. Besides traditional braces, we also focus on the following areas of treatment:
Early Intervention and Facial Growth Management
Especially in children the timing of some orthodontic treatments is quite important. If evaluation is done early enough we can time preventative treatment so that it can maximize the child’s growth potential and minimize the length and complexity of treatment in the future.
Invisalign is a great option for older teenagers and adults. The Invisalign system consists of a series of clear removable aligners that are worn full-time. These are a great, virtually invisible option to move teeth.
For an easy invisible option for more minor crowding issues. In these cases braces are attached onto the inside of your teeth, making this a great option for adults.
The specifics and timing can vary greatly depending on what you want to achieve. Orthodontics can be as simple as a removable plate or full fixed appliances. The first step is as easy as seeing us for a consultation to find out what options are right for you.
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
