Here at Shortt Dental, we are proud to offer orthodontic treatments to our patients.
Orthodontics is a dental specialty that treats improperly positioned teeth. Our main concern is malocclusions (or bad bites). When many people bite down, their teeth do not line up correctly. We are also dedicated to fixing crooked teeth. We study the development of facial bones and the jaw.
Though many believe that orthodontic dental work is only cosmetic, it is also important for good dental health. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not line up correctly are great for hiding food and bacteria. Even worse, it can be very hard to remove all of the food and bacteria, which allows cavities to form. If you don’t treat your teeth, you may struggle with other dental problems down the line.
As orthodontists, we are dedicated to giving our patients healthy mouths in the future. We work hard to ensure your teeth line up correctly, even closing gaps if needed. We also make sure your teeth line up correctly.
Braces are the most common treatment we offer, though we have many other treatments available. We can also use headgear, plates, and much more.
