Orthodontic treatment straightens teeth, moves them into a better position and occlusion and improves appearance. Orthodontics can lead to increased confidence in children and adults alike.

Oral Health

Orthodontic treatment can benefit long-term dental health. Straight, well-aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss and this can help reduce the risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease.

Better Occlusion

Orthodontic treatment can ensure that the teeth bite together properly, thus allowing better function of the maxillofacial system.


If the teeth do not bite together properly, strain can be put on the muscles of the jaw, causing jaw and joint problems and, in some cases, headaches. Orthodontic treatment can help you to bite more evenly and reduce the strain.


When the upper and lower front teeth do not align properly, this can cause speech difficulties. These can be corrected through orthodontic treatment, often combined with speech therapy.

Interdisciplinary Treatment

Sometimes, orthodontic treatment can be the preparatory stage of a dental plan, which includes implants and other restorative work.
