Our orthodontic treatments deal with helping patients restore the proper position, spacing and alignment of teeth which have either came in out of position or were impacted by other outside influences over time.

While often associated with children and adolescents, today a great many adults seek out orthodontic services to correct unaddressed issues from their youth or to address those that arose from maturational changes.

These safe, effective and affordable solutions help countless patients achieve the smile of their dreams, boosting confidence, approving appearance, and improving their oral health.

Why are Orthodontics Treatments Important?

Teeth that are misaligned and/or do not fit together properly are:

  • More difficult to clean
  • Can increase the risk of early tooth loss
  • Increase the risk of periodontal disease
  • Increased incidence of cavities
  • Cause undue stress on chewing and mandible muscles
  • Can lead to headaches, neck and back pain and even TMJ
  • Appearance and self-confidence

How do I know if I Need Orthodontics?

Only a dentist can say for sure. Your dentist will use a combination of visual inspection and diagnostic tools, along with a review of your dental and medical history to determine if orthodontics are right for you.

This process will generally involve a clinical exam, as well as special x-rays and a plaster mould of your teeth. Once reviewed, your dentist will be able to discuss potential treatment options.
