Orthodontia, also called orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics, is a specialty field of dentistry that deals primarily with malpositioned teeth and the jaws: their diagnosis, prevention and correction. An orthodontist is a specialist who has undergone special training in a dental school or college after they have graduated in dentistry.
Orthodontic braces are a device used in orthodontics to align teeth and correct the bite. Metal braces have improved through the years to a smaller size and more effective mechanics. Usually children are thrilled to be able to choose colors on their braces.
Ceramic braces are tooth colored therefore less visible and are more appealing to adult patients.
Invisalign is a series of clear aligners custom made for each patient. The aligners need to be worn by patients at all time in order to be effective.
Lingual braces are an esthetic alternative to clear braces which are cemented to the inside of the teeth therefore invisible to the public. These braces are custom build in the laboratory for each patient. In our office we use the most recent self-ligating system for our lingual cases.
