Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry focused on diagnosing, treating and preventing bad bites and other irregularities in the jaw, teeth and face. Orthodontists are specially trained to correct these problems and restore your health, function and the aesthetic appearance of your smile.

Patients of all ages can benefit from orthodontic treatment. While most patients receive care during their childhood and teenage years, an increasing number of individuals are now seeking treatment as adults. Through orthodontics, you can improve or avoid many problems, including:

  • Clarity of speech
  • Chewing abilities
  • Facial symmetry
  • Digestion (as properly aligned teeth and jaws help you eat and chew correctly)
  • TMJ disorders
  • Periodontal disease
  • Tooth decay

Common orthodontic problems which require treatment include overcrowded or uneven spacing of the teeth, overbites, underbites, and other jaw problems. These issues are most commonly corrected using braces or removable appliances such as Invisalign® clear aligners, headgear, palatal expanders and retainers.
