Braces
Braces are used to align teeth and their position with regard to a persons bite. Braces are the treatment of overbites, underbites, cross bites and open bites, deep bites, or crooked teeth and various other flaws of teeth and jaws, whether cosmetic or structural. Orthodontics often involves other appliances to widen the palate or jaws or otherwise shape the teeth and jaws. The braces themselves are moved by the resilient force of the arch wire that connects to each brace. Braces are most common among children and teenagers but we offer braces to patients of all ages!

We also offer clear braces and retainers.
