Providing conventional and specialized orthodontics care

Orthodontics is the field of dentistry that deals with irregularities in teeth. Orthodontic intervention usually relies on appliances such as braces to straighten teeth, close gaps or improve bite. Orthodontic treatment in young children can help permanent teeth come in precisely.

If your child's jaw is misaligned, she may have trouble chewing, breathing or even speaking. Our orthodontists work closely with oral and maxillofacial surgeons to make sure your child receives the best treatment available.
