Orthodontists are specially-trained dentists who use braces and other appliances to correct orthodontic problems that prevent patients from having healthy, attractive smiles. Orthodontic problems may be inherited (crowding of teeth, crooked teeth, protrusion, some jaw problems) or acquired over time (thumb-sucking, poor oral hygiene or nutrition, accidents, other medical situations). Regardless of their cause, most conditions can be treated, and the improvement is remarkable.
Orthodontic treatment for children and adults is very important, as overlapping or crowded teeth are difficult to care for and may result in gum disease, tooth decay or even tooth loss. Malocclusions, or “bad bites”, can contribute to excessive wear of teeth, jaw joint problems or difficulty in chewing and speaking. The goal of orthodontic treatment is to correct these issues before more serious problems occur. Often, corrective orthodontic treatment can be less expensive than dental care down the road. Most importantly, at the end of treatment, the patient is more confident and has a healthier smile.
Rodeffer, Garner and Minor Orthodontics recognizes that every patient has different needs, and we pride ourselves in the courteous service we deliver to each person who walks through our doors. Our knowledgeable orthodontists and well-trained staff are committed to helping you achieve the smile you deserve – a healthy, beautiful one!
