Orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics is the formal name of the collection of misalignments with your smile. These misalignments are often referred to as bad bites or malocclusions. The entire purpose of correcting malocclusions is to ensure your teeth are straightened to provide a healthier bite and a better-looking smile.

Through the use of orthodontic treatments, teeth that are out of alignment or are not spaced correctly can easily be adapted and readjusted to their ideal positions. Several orthodontic treatments are available including retainers, braces and alignment treatment systems.

Although we often think of orthodontics as something that is designed for children and young teens, the truth is is that orthodontic care can be provided for all ages. In the past, adults used to shy away from receiving orthodontic care because they were afraid of having what is known as “metal mouth” and suffering from the social stigma of wearing metal wires and brackets. However, in modern dentistry, there are several treatments that are completely metal free to provide you with the oral health care you seek discreetly and comfortably.
