What Is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on the detection, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment or correction of teeth and jaws that are malpositioned or malaligned. Orthodontics can also address abnormal bite patterns and the modification of facial development.
Orthodontists work with patients to correct issues such as:

  • Malocclusion (overbite, underbite, crossbite, etc.)
  • Misaligned jaws
  • Temporomandibular joint disorder
  • Crowded teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Idiopathic condylar resorption
  • Growth irregularities

Pediatric Orthodontics and Free Orthodontic Consultations for Children

We recommend scheduling an orthodontic and braces consultation for children by the age of seven. Certain orthodontic conditions can be treated more effectively and more easily while a child is young and growing rapidly, and treatment might take longer or be much more involved if not begun until later.
These treatments are typically referred to as interceptive orthodontics. In many cases, early braces or other orthodontic appliances can help ensure your child grows and develops normally while minimizing the need for treatments later on. Interceptive orthodontics can save time and/or expense because early treatment helps prevent much larger problems from developing in the future.

If, however, early treatment offers your child no major benefit, a one-phase approach will be recommended (after all permanent teeth are in place) rather than the two-phase approach involved with interceptive orthodontics.

To know your child’s development is on the right track and ensure your child receives the simplest path to good oral health, we provide orthodontic/braces consultations for children with no cost or obligation. We want our families to know whether it is important for their children to have early care, if it is okay to wait, or if braces are even needed at all.

In addition to traditional braces, we offer Invisalign treatment in our office. At your free consultation/exam, we can discuss the differences between traditional braces and Invisalign and help you to decide what is right for you!
