Orthodontic Treatment Options – Jaw Surgery

While orthodontics is designed to reposition and straighten teeth, in some cases, surgical orthodontic treatment (orthognathic surgery) is needed to correct more severe jaw problems. Surgical orthodontics is used to place the jaw into correct alignment, often improving a person's ability to chew, speak, and breathe. Braces are worn in conjunction with jaw surgery to make sure the teeth stay in a stable, proper position.

Orthodontic Treatment Options – Restorative Dentistry

Sometimes it is necessary to combine the work of the orthodontist with restorative work by other dentists. Restorative work can provide the perfect answer, once teeth are aligned, and the bite is correct. Some examples would be where some teeth are missing, malformed, worn, or fractured.

Orthodontic Treatment Options – Sleep Apnea

Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) are medical disorders. They can occur in children, and are also often associated with adults. For some people, OSA can be potentially life threatening. It can also lead to physical and emotional issues.

OSA involves a restricted or obstructed upper airway, especially at the base of the tongue. During sleep, the tongue falls back, blocking the airway, thereby creating an obstruction, and causing symptoms.

"I am 46 years old and I just want to say “it's never too late!” Both my sons have beautiful smiles after their treatment and I thought “it's my turn.” I am very happy with my 19 months of “fun.” "Thank you to a wonderful, professional team!"

- Wendy D.

"The first time I had braces top and bottom. Recently, I decided to have the bottom front straightened again as I really hadn't followed instructions properly, regarding wearing my retainer at the end of treatment. This only took about eight months and now I'm wearing a retainer for about four months.
PS. May I mention I am 84 years old. You are never too old!"

- Eleanor S.
