Orthodontists take care of Malocclusions. Malocclusions occur as a result of tooth or jaw misalignment and affect the way you smile, chew, clean your teeth and even feel about yourself. We help your teeth grow-and get not only straight, but healthy.
The right place at the right time. So basically, it begins with a visit. You come in. We look. We chat. We might take x-rays. We talk about treatments.
If we decide it’s time to move forward, we take a complete set of records including digital x-rays, photos and impressions – necessary tools for developing the appropriate treatment plan.
At a second consultation we’ll explain your suggested orthodontic treatment. You’ll leave the office with a clear understanding of options, goals time frames and financial options.
LUCKY NO. 7 By 7, the first adult molars erupt and it’s the perfect time to evaluate front- to-back and side-to-side tooth relationships.
