WHY SEE AN ORTHODONTIST?
Orthodontists are dental professionals who have specialist training in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of dental and facial conditions.
While dentists are experts in oral health and dental care, orthodontists focus on correcting facial and tooth development.
Orthodontists can help:
- enhance facial profile
- correct protruding, crooked or misaligned teeth
- make teeth easier to clean
- relieve difficulties in speaking, breathing or chewing
- close gaps in teeth
- improve gum health
- align jaws and correct bite-related problems
- manage thumb-sucking habits in kids.
Our orthodontists can work with you to develop a custom treatment plan.
