The key to a confident smile and optimal oral health is a set of well-aligned teeth. Orthodontics is the dental specialty that helps achieve this, focusing on diagnosing, preventing, and correcting misaligned teeth and jaws.
It's not just about aesthetics—orthodontics paves the way to better oral health, preventing issues like tooth decay and gum disease.
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in the correction of teeth and jaw alignment issues. It offers a range of treatments, from traditional braces to innovative solutions like Invisalign. The primary goal is to achieve a balanced occlusion—where your upper and lower teeth meet properly when you close your mouth.
Orthodontics treatments are crucial for addressing malocclusions or 'bad bites' that can cause a host of oral health issues. Poorly aligned teeth can be challenging to clean, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Misalignment can also lead to difficulties in speaking, chewing, and even cause excessive wear on your tooth enamel.

We'll take X-rays, 3D Image Scan (i-Tero) and photographs of your teeth and mouth, and create a model of your teeth by taking impressions. We will then discuss your orthodontic treatment options, customizing a plan that aligns with your specific needs and goals and budget.
