We provide consultation regarding irregular bite, tooth crowding and poor alignment, as well as spacing between teeth. We will evaluate your bite and tooth alignment and make recommendations as to whether braces are needed. Children's orthodontic evaluation is highly recommended since early intervention may correct or at least ameliorate future orthodontic problems. Some orthodontic cases can be treated in our office while others are better referred to an orthodontist for treatment. Orthodontic emergencies such as loose or broken retainer wire or slipped archwire irritating the gum or cheek will be handled promptly in our office.
