Orthodontics (conventional braces & Invisalign)
Orthodontics is a type of dentistry used to align teeth and correct issues with an individual’s bite. Orthodontic treatments are performed by an Orthodontist. This specialty requires two to three additional years after the completion of dental school.
Recent advancements in the dental field have tremendously enhanced orthodontic treatments. Patients are less prone to cavities, losing teeth, and digestive disorders. Much credit is owed to fluoride and preventative treatments, like braces.
This shift has peaked the interest of individuals of all ages. With more discreet options such as removable appliances, orthodontic treatment is now an ideal way to fix cosmetic and health issues. Missing teeth not only hinder the appearance of your smile but your overall oral health as well.

*Malocclusion occurs when teeth aren’t properly aligned. This may affect your bite and digestion. When you don’t chew your food properly, you may not be breaking down food well enough to get the nutrients you need. Genetics play a major role in malocclusion but can also occur from digit sucking, tongue thrusting, and unavoidable causes such as an accident. Tooth extraction among adults or losing a baby tooth too soon may also be a contributing factor of malocclusion.
