What is Orthodontics?

If you live with from poorly aligned teeth or jaws, orthodontic treatment may be right for you. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that treats issues with healthy teeth and jaw development. A poor bite caused by crooked teeth, misaligned jaws or other problems pose a variety of dental care issues for adults and children. Crooked teeth are harder to keep clean even with good at-home care, resulting in an increased risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and eventual tooth loss.

These issues can also place additional stress on the chewing muscles and jaw joints, causing headaches, TMJ disorders, and pain in the face, neck or jaw. Patients of all ages and stages of care can benefit from orthodontic treatment.

How Do I Know if I Need Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment is recommended to correct a variety of issues. You may be a candidate for orthodontic treatment if you live with one or more of the following:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Irregular spaces between teeth
  • Overbite (or buck teeth)
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

If you think you or your child are a candidate for orthodontic treatment, be sure to schedule a consultation today. Only a trained dental professional can assess you or your child’s condition and care needs. We will perform a thorough exam and review your medical history to design a treatment that’s right for you.

The treatments we offer include:

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces may be recommended patients of all ages with a variety of orthodontic issues. Braces consist of metal or ceramic brackets that are cemented to the surface of your teeth. Once placed, the brackets are used to anchor an archwire. The wire is gradually adjusted so that the teeth can be repositioned over one to two years.


Do you want a straighter smile without the need for braces? Invisalign may be the answer for you. This invisible aligner system uses a series of custom-made aligner trays to guide your teeth. Wearing the aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place over one to two years, or as recommended by our dentist. Invisalign is recommended for adults and teens with mild to moderate orthodontic issues.


Once you have completed braces or Invisalign treatment, we will prescribe a retainer to maintain your teeth’s desired alignment. Your retainer will be made to your unique needs and must be worn as prescribed by our dentist for the best results.
