Orthodontics is so much more than "straightening" teeth. Orthodontics is using a treatment plan that allows one to place the teeth into proper positions so that the patient has a beautiful profile and a great smile as well as a healthy, functional and stable dentition. Anyone can "straighten" teeth. The orthodontist must enhance or preserve facial balance and harmony as well as give the patient a dentition that lasts a lifetime without permanent retention. This office prides itself in the fact that every patient is treated with a treatment plan that should allow us, with the patient's help, to achieve these goals. We do much more than simple tooth alignment – we help patients create for themselves a beautiful, balanced face!!
