Orthodontics Video

Adults and kids alike can benefit from the boost in self-confidence that comes from having a great-looking smile with beautifully aligned teeth. Orthodontic treatment can even improve chewing, speaking and oral hygiene in certain cases. And with today's virtually invisible orthodontic appliances, it's possible to keep your treatment a private matter… until your new smile is unveiled, of course! Learn more about Orthodontics.

Our orthodontic services are broken down into the following categories:

Early Orthodontic Treatment

Some bite problems are much easier to treat if they are caught at an early age. That's why all children should have an orthodontic evaluation by age 7, even if it's not yet time to begin treatment. Learn more about Early Orthodontic Treatment.

Adolescent Orthodontic Treatment

It is preferable to treat many orthodontic problems during adolescence while the body is still growing rapidly. In later years, when the bones of the face and jaws are fully developed, many conditions become more difficult (and costly) to treat. Learn more about Adolescent Orthodontic Treatment.

Adult Orthodontic Treatment

If you think you've missed your chance to have beautiful, straight teeth, think again! Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, so there's no such thing as being too old for braces. However, orthodontic treatment for adults is different in certain respects than it is for a growing child. Learn more about Adult Orthodontic Treatment.

Types of Braces

Braces are fixed orthodontic appliances attached to the teeth that normally are not removed until treatment is complete. You may already be familiar with traditional metal braces, but there are also less noticeable alternatives available. Learn more about the Types of Braces.

Other Types of Orthodontic Appliances

We can make use of a variety of special appliances when braces alone aren't enough to move teeth into a better position, to correct various other conditions, and to secure the teeth in their new and improved position. These appliances include:

  • Orthodontic Headgear
  • Thumb & Finger Appliances
  • Orthodontic Retainers
  • Palatal Expanders
  • Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADS)

Corrective Jaw Surgery

When the relationship between the teeth and jaws is causing a serious orthodontic problem, surgery may be recommended. Conditions treated surgically may include underbites and congenital abnormalities (birth defects) related to jaw development.

Hygiene & Post-Orthodontic Care

Once you've invested in orthodontic treatment, you'll want to make sure to keep your smile healthy and looking great.
