What Is Orthodontics?
A special area of dentistry, Orthodontics deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental irregularities. Issues can be caused by crooked, crowded, or protruding teeth along with poorly aligned jaws. When you or your child has any of these issues, called malocclusion, we can treat and correct with appliances called braces.

The main reason for choosing braces is that crooked, crowded teeth are difficult to keep clean and healthy. Poorly aligned teeth makes it difficult to chew food and can cause improper wear. A pleasing, "Stellar" smile and improved self-confidence might be the most important reason for you or your child to consider orthodontic treatment. 
 
The age of the patient and nature of the malocclusion will determine what type of orthodontic treatment and appliances are needed. Braces can range from a relatively simple, removable retainer to the more complex braces with which you might be most familiar.

To complement braces, sometimes additional elastics, or removable appliances, are needed to redirect growth. In most cases, after the braces are removed, a retainer is worn for an additional year or so to keep teeth in their corrected position. 
 
More Than A Great Smile
The importance of a nice smile should never be underestimated, the orthodontic specialist has another equally important treatment goal, and that is to improve the health of your teeth and gums. Crooked teeth and bad bites can seriously affect general oral health and sometimes create TMJ problems.
