Orthodontics is the branch of Dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of Dental and Facial irregularities. These includes treatment of different conditions:
- Over Crowding
- Deep Overbite
- Open Bite
- Overjet or Upper protuding teeth
- Underbite or Lower protuding jaw
- Spaces in between teeth
Orthodontists require professional skill in the design, application and control of corrective appliances, such as braces and retainers, to bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment and to achieve facial balance.
The results of orthodontic treatment can be dramatic — beautiful smiles, improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for people of all ages. Outstanding results are also dependent on maximizing the coordination between your personal dental care and our practice.
Metal Braces are now smaller, more efficient and comfortable thanks to many advances in orthodontic materials such as metal wires and brackets.
The metal brackets on braces can now be done clear or colored, depending on the patient’s preference. Wearing Clear braces makes it less noticeable.

Lingual or Internal Braces are attached to the inside or lingual side of the teeth which makes them completely non-visible. Lingual orthodontics is particularly well-suited for adults whose professions demands public appearances.
Invisalign uses a series of clear removable aligners to straighten your teeth without using metal wires or brackets. This is a sophisticated way to straighten your teeth with invisible braces.
