Typical signs of the need for an orthodontic exam may include, but are not limited to the early or late loss of teeth, difficulty in chewing, mouth-breathing, finger sucking, crowded teeth, jaw dysfunction, a sunken or protruding jaw or misaligned teeth.
Signs of potential orthodontic problems may not be obvious. Our initial exams are at no-charge and are the most sensible means to assure proper oral health. Early diagnosis and treatment in many cases can help to avoid more extensive treatment in the future years after the jaw and face have developed. Multi-phase, early interceptive treatment is not always necessary but will be recommended when early treatment can benefit your child.
A healthy smile is a confident smile, and we believe every child deserves the opportunity to smile with confidence. Orthodontic treatment can provide teenagers with the opportunity to feel good about themselves and smile with confidence.
Orthodontics is more than straight teeth. An overbite, underbite, a dysfunctional smile, a sunken or protruding chin can in many cases be corrected with orthodontic treatment. Proper tooth and jaw alignment are critical to achieving proper long-term oral health.
As we age, misalignment of the teeth is very common, even if you have had braces earlier in life. Oftentimes simple therapy is the answer to gaining or regaining a perfect and healthy smile.
With fewer office visits, and the availability of aesthetic braces or clear Invisalign aligners, all adults should have the perfect smile. Teeth provide the support structure for the soft tissue of the lower face, including lips, cheeks, and marionette lines. By repositioning the teeth and jaw, skin can appear tighter and lips can appear fuller. We can often achieve greater facial aesthetics without surgery or the extraction of teeth by creating a treatment plan utilizing low-friction appliances that can expand the dental arch and reposition teeth and gums.
