If you have crooked teeth and/or a misaligned bite (an underbite or overbite), there are a variety of treatments that
can help straighten teeth, including braces and retainers.
Dental braces (also known as braces, orthodontic cases, or cases) are devices used in orthodontics that align and
straighten teeth and help to position them with regard to a person's bite, while also working to improve dental health.
They are often used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, moth bites, open bites, deep bites, cross
bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Dental
braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise
assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.
Many general dentists are doing basic alignment and orthodontics, but we specialize in
correcting irregularities of the teeth.
At Family Dentistry, the dentist will ask questions about your health, conduct a clinical exam, take
impressions of your teeth, take photos of your face and teeth, and order X-rays of the mouth and head. An appropriate
treatment plan is made based on analysis of the gathered information.
