Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with the growth and development of orofacial structures, including the irregularities of teeth, malocclusion, and associated facial problems.
There are several different options in orthodontics from traditional “metal braces” and various clear aligner systems. Treatment is selected on a case by case basis. For some people clear aligners are a better choice and for other more complex cases, traditional metal wire braces may be a better option.
We know there are now several at-home options on the market. We always tell our patients to proceed with caution. It is always in YOUR BEST INTEREST to undergo treatment under the care and supervision of a Doctor for all of your treatment. During orthodontic movement, several things may need to be changed or adjusted as the treatment is “never a one size fits all.”
If finances are an issue we are more than happy to work with you to help you and your family get the smile of your dreams.
