Orthodontic treatment is complex biological process. It involves changes in jaw bones, facial bones and soft tissue as teeth are moved into their new positions. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak.
Orthodontic treatment is not a quick fix. Your care starts with a thorough examination of the teeth and mouth, and study of dental records such as x-rays, photos and models of the teeth. From this detailed information your orthodontist usually develops a custom treatment plan. With good care, including orthodontic treatment when necessary, teeth can last a lifetime.
Orthodontic treatment can yield life-enhancing results: better function (biting, chewing, speaking), improved appearance and increased self-esteem.
