What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is any treatment that corrects the alignment of your teeth, including the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of dental and facial irregularities.

Malocclusion is an abnormal bite, and it causes more problems than just appearance, including:

  • Crooked, crowded, or protruding teeth are more difficult to keep clean and therefore more prone to tooth decay.
  • Misaligned teeth can cause tension and pain in the jaw, even leading to neck pain and headaches.
  • Social problems can occur due to problems with speech, and a lack of confidence in your appearance.

The first step in orthodontic treatment is a consultation with one of our dentists. This appointment will give you an idea of the type of orthodontic issues you have, your various treatment options, and the approximate cost of braces or Invisalign. To make the cost of orthodontic treatment more affordable, we offer our popular OrthoPlan payment plan.
