Get the Smile You Deserve

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that have improper positioning. Crooked teeth are difficult to keep clean and are at risk of being lost early to tooth decay and periodontal disease. In addition, they cause stress on chewing muscles which can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome, neck, shoulder and back pain. Aside from pain, crooked teeth can add an avoidable layer of negative self-consciousness keeping you from expressing yourself the way you’d like. A good orthodontist can address any orthodontic issues you may have.

7 Signs You May Need Orthodontics

Only a trained professional can determine if orthodontics is right for you. They use diagnostic tools that include a full medical and dental health history, a clinical exam, stone models of your teeth, and X-rays to determine if orthodontics is the right plan.

If you have any of the following, there is a chance you may be a good candidate for orthodontic treatment:

What is Orthodontic Treatment?

When considering orthodontic treatment, you have several options to evaluate. There are many different types of appliances, both fixed and removable, that can be used to help move teeth, retrain muscles, and affect the growth of your jaw.  They work by placing gentle pressure on your teeth and jaw. The severity of your problem determines which orthodontic approach will be most effective.
