Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry that addresses the prevention, diagnosis, and correction of mal-positioned teeth and jaws, and misaligned bite patterns. It may also address the modification of facial growth, known as dentofacial orthopedics. Abnormal alignment of the teeth and jaws is very common.
Our Orthodontists are trained to enhance the smile you were born with. From children to adults, They are trained to correct, fix, and prevent problems that may develop with your smile over the next years.
Poorly aligned and crowded teeth can lead to a wide range of dental and social problems, and the only way to effectively and permanently counter this is through orthodontic treatment.
In a single appointment, we can give you a healthier, more youthful smile through a series of even, white teeth that appear evenly spaced, which in turn creates a more attractive look that gives you greater self-confidence.
When do I need teeth straightening
If you notice any irregularities in the shape of your child’s teeth after the age of seven, then you must visit the dentist. The formation of teeth passes through several stages. The general rule is that the last of these ends in the seventh year as the acquisition and growth of teeth has been completed. Irregularities like these can be treated with orthodontics as there are many types of defects in a patient’s bite, and if left untreated, they can cause problems later on. The dentist will ensure that your jaw is correctly aligned before issues arise.
