A woman smiling after getting her braces

Orthodontics encompasses any treatment designed to move and straighten your teeth or improve the alignment of your jaw. Results are achieved through either traditional fixed braces or clear aligner therapy.

Traditional braces work with the placement of either metal or ceramic brackets, which are bonded to your teeth. Wires are placed through the brackets, which distribute light force to unravel crowded teeth or close unwanted spaces. Clear aligners work in a similar fashion, placing pressure on the teeth in specific directions in order to straighten and improve your smile.

How we can help

Seeing your dentist for a proper diagnosis is the first step. X-rays will help your dentist to see the bones and jaws underlying the teeth and they will assess any issues that are present in your mouth.
