The earlier we can evaluate children for current or future potential orthodontic care needs the better. There are actually things we can do that are preventive during early childhood that can even help prevent a third of children from ever even needing braces in the first place!!

It’s a misconception that people often need teeth extracted for orthodontic care. The problem is often an undersized jaw, not a crowded jaw. The teeth are the right size, the jaw just never expanded to its full potential. We can help patients make room in their jaws for their full, healthy smile with no need for extraction.

Traditional orthodontics don’t really take into consideration the TMJ. In our practice, we use Controlled Arch Orthodontics which actually starts with a growth phase to help balance the needs of the teeth and the entire body such as the joints and airways. We don’t only focus on the cosmetic portion of orthodontic care, we also focus on the health of the entire mouth, face and body. Our treatment plan improves the entire look of the face!

This orthodontic treatment can correct bite problems, crowded teeth, sleep apnea, TMJD, and other issues by facilitating facial growth using an anterior growth guidance appliance.

Age Ain't Nothing But a Number

How old is too old for braces? There's no such thing! More and more adults are getting orthodontic care to achieve the smile they want.

Traditional vs Controlled Arch Braces

Traditional braces are restrictive which cause your jaw to either not grow or to shrink in size.

Controlled arch braces actually expand your jaw and move your teeth forward away from your airway which helps move your tongue forward away from the airway helping you to breathe better
