What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that treats issues with teeth and jaw alignment. A poor bite caused by crooked teeth, misaligned jaws or other problems pose a variety of dental care concerns to patients. Crooked teeth are harder to keep clean even with proper oral hygiene, resulting in an increased risk of cavities, gum disease and tooth loss.

These issues can also place additional stress on the chewing muscles, causing headaches, TMJ disorders, and pain in the jaw, neck, shoulders or back. Patients of all ages can benefit from orthodontic correction, including adults and young children. Call our office to learn more about the benefits of orthodontics for you or your child.

We will perform a thorough exam and review your medical history to design a treatment that’s right for you.

  • Crooked teeth

  • Irregular spaces between teeth

  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

How Does Orthodontic Treatment Work?

Orthodontics offers many types of treatments to guide your teeth and jaws into the desired alignment. Braces can shift the teeth, reposition the jaw, retrain the surrounding muscles, and correct issues in jawbone development.

Braces consist of metal or ceramic brackets and an archwire. The wire is anchored in place by the brackets and gradually adjusted so that the teeth can be repositioned over one to two years. Once treatment is complete, the braces are then removed and we will prescribe a dental retainer to maintain your teeth’s desired alignment.
