Orthodontics

What is orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a popular, specialized branch of dentistry. The main focus of orthodontics is the irregularities in the alignment of the teeth, bite, and jaws. Orthodontic treatment can be used to straighten crooked teeth and correct the alignment of the jaws for a proper bite relationship. We offer two types of orthodontics: braces and Invisalign®.

What are braces?

Braces are one of the most common types of orthodontic treatment. In order to correct the alignment of your teeth, Dr. Shane Newton will attach metal brackets to your teeth. These brackets are connected to each other through the use of a metal wire. As your dentist carefully adjusts the wire, your teeth will be gently guided to their ideal positions. Braces can help you gain a healthier, more attractive smile. A straighter smile is more inviting, and correcting your tooth alignment can also help to prevent dental problems like tooth decay and periodontal disease. In addition, braces can correct problems with the bite, such as overbite, underbite, open bite, or crossbite.
