Early Orthodontic Care
Orthodontic care may begin earlier than you would imagine, with an initial evaluation with our orthodontist. We can frequently plan treatment more effectively by seeing a child earlier, timing it carefully to provide an optimal outcome. Early orthodontic care can often eliminate the need for braces during adolescence or reduce the time needed for treatment.
Fixed and Removable Orthodontic Appliances
We offer fixed and removable braces to correct the most complex orthodontic problems affecting a person’s bite. Options include conventional fixed metal braces and more discreet fixed ceramic braces. Our orthodontist is a certified Invisalign provider, a removable and nearly invisible system suitable for adults and older teens. Fastbraces is a more cosmetically oriented orthodontic system designed to correct issues affecting only the front teeth.
As an orthodontic practice, we can offer more advanced services, including dento-facial orthopaedics. This is a treatment that can guide the growth of a child’s jaws and facial bones, creating a more pleasing facial profile and a healthier bite. Treatment can be extremely useful where jaw and facial growth has been affected by oral issues such as thumb and finger sucking, mouth breathing and tongue thrusting.
We can accomplish a great deal using fixed and removable orthodontic appliances, but sometimes surgery is needed to correct the relationship between the upper and lower jaw. Surgically realigning the jaws allows our experienced orthodontist to create a more harmonious and balanced bite, improving overall appearance and protecting oral health.
