What are the benefits?

Orthodontics is a well sought after treatment modality for patients that need teeth alignment. Some patients may view orthodontics as a cosmetic solution, however, orthodontic care helps prevent decay, periodontal disease, and TMJ due to misalignment. Early treatment will improve your oral health and prevent future dental issues. Patients with the following dental issues should contact us:
  • Gaps
  • Jaw misalignment
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crooked teeth

How does teeth misalignment happen?

There are many factors that could have an effect on alignment on teeth including genetics, musculature, and skeletal structure. For most people, once adult teeth erupt in the mouth, they don’t erupt in perfect alignment. For some people this misalignment can be detrimental to long-term oral health and may cause psychological insecurities. Patients with orthodontic concerns are encouraged to come see us for a consultation so we can offer the best treatment options available.

What treatment options are available?

During the consultation we take a full set of records to examine your skeletal structure, dental alignment, and jaw shape. This includes mouth impressions and dental X-rays. Depending on the findings, the doctor will be able to create a plan that’s most appropriate for your dental needs.
