When creating a comprehensive customized treatment plan, your orthodontist needs to do a complete exam, including x-rays and a thorough discussion of everything from treatment options to an estimation of how long treatment will last. This is also your chance to ask questions, layout any concerns, and get educated on the decision that will impact your health.
Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on diagnosing, treating, and preventing facial and dental abnormalities. While many people know orthodontic treatment leads to beautiful smiles, some aren’t aware of our work’s great oral health benefits. Orthodontics helps patients achieve a better functioning smile by correcting malocclusions, crooked teeth, overcrowded teeth, and more. Some common appliances we use for corrective treatment include traditional metal braces, clear braces, Damon braces, Invisalign, and our in-house clear aligners.
