When a person’s teeth or jaw structure do not fit together properly, orthodontic treatment may be necessary to straighten teeth to promote ideal function. These problems are often referred to by orthodontists as malocclusions (or bad bites) and can cause speech difficulty, premature wear of the teeth and protective enamel, increase the chance of injury to teeth and jaw joints—it can even make you uncomfortable smiling—if left untreated.
From subtle changes to major repairs, we can perform a variety of procedures to improve your smile. We can reshape your teeth, close spaces, restore worn or short teeth or alter the length of your teeth. These improvements are not always just cosmetic. Many of these treatments can improve oral problems, such as your bite.
The condition of your teeth and desired result you want often dictates the best procedure.
