Cosmetic Dentistry - Orthodontics


The benefits of orthodontic treatment often go beyond the obvious physical changes of an improved bite and straighter teeth. It’s also a great way to improve a person’s overall self-image. We currently have an Orthodontist who comes in twice a month to care for your orthodontic needs.

Orthodontic problems that go untreated can lead to chewing and digestion difficulties, speech impairments, and abnormal wear of tooth structure. Over time, excessive strain on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth can affect the jaw joints leading to problems such as headaches, face and neck pain.

If treatment is necessary, we will thoroughly discuss which treatment option is best suited for you!

Are braces for you?
Breathing or swallowing problems – Mouth breathing can lead to snoring and sleep apnea.
Crossbite – One or more upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth (towards the tongue).
Crowed teeth
Deep Overbite – The lower front teeth bite into the tissue of the upper teeth.
Disfiguring of the face & mouth – Affects the development of the jaw and position of the teeth.
Missing or extra teeth – Due to tooth decay, injuries, or inherited problems.
Overjet (protruding upper teeth) – Upper teeth that protrude beyond normal and are usually associated with a short lower jaw.
Self-image – An attractive smile can boost a person’s self-image and confidence.
Spacing between teeth – Teeth are missing or may be too small or too large.
Speech, chewing or biting problems
Underbite (lower jaw protrusion) – Lower jaw is longer than the upper jaw.

Orthodontic treatment involves three phases:
Planning Phase – Your first couple of visits may include the following:
A medical and dental history evaluation.
Castings or “molds” of your teeth.
Computer generated photograph of the head and neck that will aid in planning.
Photographs of your face and mouth.
X-rays of the teeth and jaw.
After careful planning, your orthodontist will design and apply braces or fabricate custom-made appliances for you.
Active Phase – Active treatment involves visiting your orthodontist on a regular basis for adjustments and following specific
treatment requirements to ensure successful treatment.
Retention Phase – When treatment is completed, the braces and/or appliances are removed and a new appliance is made.
Usually these retainers are removable and will maintain the changes made to your teeth if worn continuously until the teeth and
bone are stabilized in their new positions.
Treatment and retention times vary depending on each individual case. Your orthodontist will ensure you have a successful
treatment for a beautiful smile that can last a lifetime.
Orthodontics can not only help straighten your teeth, giving you an appealing smile, but can greatly contribute to the health of your jaw, teeth and your overall health.
