Orthodontics is more than just straightening teeth. This branch of dentistry focuses on correcting your overall jaw and tooth alignment, ensuring that your bite as a whole functions properly. At our practice, we are pleased to offer a variety of treatments that can help your smile achieve maximum comfort and functionality throughout your life. Some of our alternative orthodontic treatments include:
: TMJ is a disorder with the jaw joint that can cause severely painful side effects. Orthodontists can provide treatment in a variety of ways, including oral appliances, to relieve pain and restore comfort.
: Oral appliances such as headgear, space maintainers, and retainers are helpful for preparing patients for more traditional treatments and for maintaining the appearance of your smile after your treatment is complete.
Cleft Lip and Palate Repair
: Having a cleft lip or palate can cause oral damage later in life. Orthodontists provide surgical procedures to correct these conditions and restore full oral functionality and health.
There are many other orthodontic treatments that our doctor may recommend. Before determining which treatment is right for you, our orthodontist will perform a thorough examination of your condition and consider your goals for oral health. Some problems may be corrected with just one treatment, whereas others may require several. We invite you to call or visit us today for further information.
