Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with properly aligning teeth and jaws to improve facial structure (and your child's smile), as well as overall oral health.

Orthodontic treatment will help your child by:

  • guiding permanent teeth into the proper positions
  • improving lip closure
  • reserving or gaining space for erupting permanent teeth
  • reducing the potential for to jaw joint damage
  • reducing the likelihood of impacted permanent teeth
  • influencing proper jaw growth
  • ensuring the proper width of dental arches
  • improving eruption patterns
  • lowering the risk of damage to protruded upper teeth
  • shortening treatment time for later corrective orthodontics
  • improving some speech problems
