Our dentist uses braces to deliver the most consistent results in tooth movement and root alignment.
Some of the most challenging cases Our dentist treats are skeletal discrepancies such as severe crowding, irregular bites, flat or retrognathic profiles, and high gum lines.
Our dentist has successfully treated patients using rubber bands, headgears, Herbst, Pendex, and upper jaw expanders as auxiliaries with braces.
Orthodontics is not merely for improving the aesthetics of the smile; orthodontic treatment improves bad bites (malocclusions). Malocclusions occur as a result of tooth or jaw misalignment. Malocclusions affect the way you smile, chew, clean your teeth or feel about your smile.
According to studies by the American Association of Orthodontists, untreated malocclusions can result in a variety of problems.
Crowded teeth are more difficult to properly brush and floss, which may contribute to tooth decay and/or gum disease. Protruding teeth are more susceptible to accidental chipping.
Crossbites can result in unfavorable growth and uneven tooth wear. Openbites can result in tongue – thrusting habits and speech impediments. Ultimately, orthodontics does more than make a pretty smile – it creates a healthier you.
