Orthodontics & Invisalign
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities (malocclusions*). Orthodontic treatment can be provided by general dentist.
Recent years have brought many changes within the dental industry, specifically with regards to orthodontic treatment and care. Nowadays more so than ever are patients experiencing fewer incidences of cavities and missing teeth due to the heightened awareness of fluoride use and preventive dentistry. The increased awareness of the health and look of a patient’s smile has fueled the desire to seek orthodontia not only as a medical necessity but for cosmetic reasons as well.
Orthodontics can help acquire the healthy and straight beautiful smile through traditional braces or custom made removable appliances!

The technical term Malocclusion indicates teeth that don’t fit together correctly. Malocclusions not only affect the teeth but also the appearance of the face. Most malocclusions are inherited. However some are due to acquired habits such as thumb sucking and tongue thrusting. The spacing left from an adult tooth being extracted or an early loss of a baby tooth can also contribute to malocclusion.
