What Does Orthodontics Involve?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that involves improving jaw function and bite relationships by moving teeth into their optimal alignment. Our experienced team treats mild to complex bite issues with a wide array of excellent services, all personalized to you or your child's needs.

Our orthodontist uses a variety of solutions to alter the position of teeth, from fixed braces to removable devices like clear aligners and retainers. We will prescribe different treatments depending on whether you need small or significant realignment.

The process of correcting your smile takes place over months or years, depending on your unique bite. We carefully design and control our treatments to move your teeth into the best alignment possible. Our experienced orthodontic team will monitor your progress throughout the process, ensuring quality results.

What Types of Orthodontic Treatments Do You Offer?

Our orthodontic care involves a thorough process of evaluating, diagnosing, and treating your uneven bite alignment and misaligned teeth. Our team employs various time-tested methods to correct alignment issues. Some of our services include:

During your initial consultation, we will take x-rays and impressions of your teeth to gain insights into the right solutions for your smile and diagnose any issues. We then use the information we gather to craft a solution to help you reach your beautiful new smile as efficiently and safely as possible.

We know that some adults may think that getting orthodontic treatments is not for them because it takes too long and requires too many trips to the dentist. When appropriate, we recommend our Invisalign clear aligners. These are a great option for people with busy schedules because they cut down on both treatment time and trips to the dentist. Our friendly orthodontist is happy to answer any questions you might have about the process when you visit us for your consultation.

Do I Need Orthodontics?

If you have issues that bother you, like noticeably misaligned teeth, jaw pain arising from alignment issues, or decay because of malocclusion, orthodontics is an important solution to remedy these problems. Whether you want a more aesthetically pleasing smile or are worried about complications like tooth decay and chronic jaw pain, we encourage you to come in for an appointment to see how we can improve your smile and overall quality of life. Orthodontics can help fix:

  • Malocclusion
  • Protruding teeth
  • Bruxism/Tooth Grinding
  • Painful Bite
  • Spaces Between Teeth

What Are Surgical Orthodontics and Are They Right for Me?

Surgical orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that involves correcting jaw irregularities that cause bite misalignments. There are some underlying issues that orthodontics alone can't solve. Our surgical services will address the root causes of misalignments brough about by malformation of the jaw and palate.

While orthodontics can help correct misalignments to an extent, if underlying jaw and palate issues aren't dealt with their effectiveness may be limited. Based on the severity of the irregularities in your jaw, surgical treatments may be much more effective than orthodontics alone. These procedures involve employing surgical methods that alter the alignment of jawbones and other maxillofacial structures. These procedures are then paired with orthodontic care to achieve results that will produce proper bite alignment and a healthier smile overall.
