Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry focused on the diagnosis and treatment of dental associated facial irregularities. The results of orthodontic treatment can be dramatic – beautiful smiles, improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for many people of all ages. Orthodontic problems, which can result from genetic and environmental factors, must be diagnosed before treatment begins. Proper diagnosis includes taking photographs, x-rays and dental impressions, which enable our practice to make informative decisions about the form of treatment necessary. Treatment typically lasts from 12 to 18 months but may vary from 6 to 30 months, depending on age and the severity of the orthodontic problem. Outstanding results are also dependent on maximizing the coordination of care between you and our practice. We are committed to delivering the best possible service in order for you to achieve your orthodontic objectives.
