Orthodontics in 21st century:

Your Children Deserve….Appliance therapy …Let us meet your Child’s Orthodontic needs as early as possible. It is critical to correct functional or jaw problems as soon as they are diagnosed. Give your child a beautiful, healthy smile.

Broad and Beautiful Smiles: Mouth breathing can cause narrow arches and unattractive smiles. By using functional appliances while children are actively growing, we can help them achieve broad, beautiful smile.

Healthy Jaw joints: Many children with narrow jaws, deep overbites or receding lower jaws have unhealthy jaw joints causing headache, neck pain, dizziness, earaches, fainting, clicking joints, difficulty opening jaws can be corrected or eliminated with early use of appliances.

To Breathe freely: Mouth breathing can lead to orthodontic problems as well as other problems such as lack of oxygen to growing child and sleep disorders, leaving them with daytime fatigue, inability to concentrate at school and headaches.

To End Ear pain: Deep overbites and receding lower jaws may cause earaches, stuffiness and ringing in the ears. If infection has been ruled out, functional appliances can eliminate symptoms effectively.

Speech Development: Narrow jaw can confine the tongue and interfere with normal speech. Functional appliances help ensure proper growth and greatly enhance a child’s ability to speak normally.

Your support: Parents want best for their children. Straight teeth, properly sized and aligned jaws, straight profiles and beautiful smiles. By providing early orthodontics with appliance therapy, you save money, shorter treatment time, correct underdeveloped jaws, may prevent from extensive future treatment by developing arches and eliminating crowding, more pleasing esthetics with more stable results and eliminate need for removal of teeth..

Adult Orthodontics: The art and science of shifting teeth to their optimal position- is in the throes of a 21st century revolution, driven by adults and senior citizens (25% of total orthodontic patients are adults), but inspired by new materials and new technology that allow for lighter, smaller, less conspicuous appliances, small tooth colored brackets and smaller- resilient nickel titanium wires and clear slip on and slip off invisible trays.

Adult orthodontics has joined up with Botox and liposuction in our contemporary quest for bodily perfections. May be now that many of us have whitened our teeth, we also want perfectly aligned teeth.

Two Phase Orthodontic treatment:

Phase one: Ideal First Step! Functional appliances- ages 5 to 12 is ideal time.

  •     Early treatment should be initiated for habits such as tongue thursting and thumb sucking
  •     A constricted airway due to swollen adenoids and tonsils
  •     Mouth breathing or snoring or clenching
  •     A bad bite
  •     Deep bite, overbite, narrow or underdeveloped jaws


Phase two: Second Step 

  •     Braces or invisalign
