Patient Info

Orthodontics corrects misaligned teeth and jaws such as overbites, underbites, crossbites, deep bites, crooked teeth. Appliances are used to assist in aligning and straightening teeth in order to not only improve appearance but improve a person’s bite and overall oral health. Good oral health helps to prevent many diseases and allows us to enjoy a healthy diet and feel good about ourselves when we smile.

Dental technology has improved over the years to include new options to help correct misaligned teeth and jaws, and there are a number of techniques and products available that were not available just a few short years ago. The patient experience has improved and today’s options are less conspicuous than the full metal braces that were common in the past. Although metal braces are still very commonly used, which choice works best for your child is a discussion to be had with your doctor at the time of consultation.
