Orthodontic Treatment/Dental Braces
Orthodontics is a specialty field of dentistry that diagnoses, prevents and treats irregularities of the teeth and face. Treatment can correct an irregular or “bad” bite, also known as a malocclusion. They also can help with procedures in other areas of dentistry. Examples include cosmetic and implant dentistry. In young children, orthodontic treatment also may guide proper jaw growth and permanent tooth eruption.
Orthodontic care involves the use of corrective appliances, usually braces. These devices can be used to:
Correct an irregular bite
Close unsightly gaps
Bring teeth and lips into proper alignment

Are you a candidate for Invisalign?
INVISALIGN works best if you already have a good bite, small rotation, small gap or a minor problem. They will not work with biting or crowding problems and are not meant to be used with children.
