Orthodontic treatment is used to correct problems of excessive space between teeth and crooked or crowded teeth. This therapy is also used to correct overbites, underbites and crossbites. The therapy usually involves the use of braces to create spaces or reshape the teeth and jaws.
The science of orthodontics is increasingly being used by adults to treat TMD which causes pain to millions of people everyday. TMD is often associated with headaches, muscle spasms, dizziness and ringing in the ears.
In order to properly treat TMD, it is imperative that it is assessed in a clear and comprehensive manner in order to rule out any degenerative joint diseases. Our thorough orthodontic evaluations include an examination of the joints in order to help patients achieve both healthy joints and beautiful smiles.

With no metal and no wires, treatment with Invisalign is comfortable and requires fewer visits to our office.
