If you want to learn more about how we can help you get the best possible results, please give us a call to get your free consultation scheduled right away.
The Job of an Orthodontist
The job of an orthodontist is to help correct teeth. They can fix alignment issues, bite issues, cosmetic issues, etc.
They employ the most recent technology to help straighten teeth. An orthodontist certainly can perform the same type of care that a general dentist does, but their primary focus is orthodontic issues. When a general dentist cannot correct a problem, they will refer their patients to an orthodontist who can.
Orthodontists have to go through four years of dental school in addition to specialized studies for orthodontics in order to be able to treat patients.

Why You Should See an Orthodontist
The following are a few of the most common reasons why someone would want to see an orthodontist. Please reach out to our office right away if you have any of these dental issues that you would like to receive treatment for. We would be glad to help you achieve a smile you love.
Crooked teeth pose a health threat. When your teeth are crowded and overlap, it gets harder to clean between your teeth. When you have food residue left behind in between your teeth, you can start to have plaque buildup. This can lead to tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. You should see an orthodontist to prevent these health issues.
Bite issues are one of the most common reasons why someone would see an orthodontist. We treat over and underbites at our office, and treating an alignment issue early on can prevent many problems down the road. We strongly encourage you to reach out right away to schedule your free consultation.
Clicking and popping in your jaw can be an indication that you have TMD, which is a dysfunction of your TMJ joint. People often see an orthodontist to address this issue. Having TMD can make eating and talking painful. Many people have trouble chewing when their jaw keeps clicking and popping. We would be glad to discuss ways to find relief if you deal with this.
People often see an orthodontist simply because they think their smile is unattractive. They may have bite issues, gapped teeth, or crowded teeth, but their primary concern is improving the appearance of their smile. We fully understand wanting to improve your smile to be aesthetically pleasing. Feeling good about yourself is important, and we would love to help you gain confidence in your smile.
