Orthodontics is an area of dentistry specializing in the treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities.  Orthodontic treatment is best performed by an orthodontist who specializes in that area of dental care.

What can be accomplished with orthodontics:

  • a more attractive smile
  • an improved alignment of teeth
  • a better bite with improved chewing function
  • a reduced chance of future periodontal or gum disease

Here is an overview of some of the most common treatments:

  • fixed orthodontic braces involving brackets and wires
  • removable appliances 
  • Invisalign® – This is a newer, removable type of dental aligner that is completely transparent, does not interfere with eating, and mechanically works in the same way as traditional metal dental braces
