Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities (malocclusions*).  Recent years have brought about many changes within the dental industry, specifically with regards to orthodontic treatment and care.  Now more than ever patients are experiencing fewer incidences of cavities and missing teeth due to the heightened awareness of fluoride use and preventative dentistry.   This increasing awareness on the health and look of a patient’s smile has fueled the desire for many to seek out orthodontia not only as a medical necessity, but for cosmetic reasons as well.   

Orthodontic procedures that are routinely provided by our office include:

  • Interceptive Orthodontic Treatment to correct developing problems
  • Removable retainers and appliances
  • Limited treatment with braces
  • Space Maintainers
  • Correction of crowding
  • Thumbsucking prevention/treatment
