Orthodontic Treatment


Braces and orthodontic treatment are used to correct “bad bites,” or malocclusion (teeth that are crowded or crooked). In some cases your teeth may be straight, but your upper and lower jaws may not meet properly. These jaw or tooth alignment problems may be inherited or could result from injury, early or late tooth loss, or thumbsucking.

Orthodontic treatment uses appliances, tooth removal, or surgery to fix the way teeth and jaws are aligned. There are many ways to treat poor bite (malocclusion). Expert opinions differ about when to start treatment. Your dentist or orthodontist may give you a choice between early or later treatment or may prefer one specific approach.


Comprehensive orthodontic treatment can be a tremendous benefit to almost any patient, no matter what the age. Adults can benefit just as much as children, and the treatment does not take any longer. Treatment may last from as little as four months, but can last up to two or three years depending on the complexity of the case. Some of the many benefits of orthodontic treatment include:
• Straight teeth and a nice smile that improves self-esteem and confidence.
• Improved facial shape and profile.
• Better chewing function and speech.
• To prevent excessive wear on certain teeth not contacting properly with the opposing arch.
• Freedom from jaw/joint pain.
• Improved ability to clean one’s teeth and avoid tooth decay and periodontal disease.
• Establish a healthy foundation for the replacement of missing teeth or other restorative dental work.
• The reduction in mouth-breathing and lip incompetence.
