Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities.

There are many advantages of well-aligned teeth, including easier cleaning, better oral hygiene, clearer speech and a more pleasant smile. We offer cutting-edge services like Invisalign and Six Month Smiles so you can start flashing your pearly whites with confidence.


What problems can be treated with orthodontics?

Anteroposterior Deviations

The discrepancy between a pair of closed jaws is known as an anteroposterior discrepancy or deviation. An example of such a discrepancy would be an overbite or underbite, which can sometimes be corrected in a matter of months.


Overcrowding is a common orthodontic problem. It occurs when there is insufficient space for the normal growth and development of adult teeth. We can correct overcrowding to promote healthy arrangement for your teeth.

Aesthetic Problems

A beautiful straight smile may be marred by a single misaligned tooth. Any irregular teeth can be realigned with ease and accuracy by the orthodontist. We can also work to reshape and restructure the lips, jaw or face.

Orthodontic Solutions

Orthodontics is a technologically advanced field which offers many sophisticated solutions to malocclusions and other cosmetic problems.

Here is an overview of some of the treatments we provide:

A big reason some people are worried about getting braces is because of the aesthetic impact of metalwork on their smile. The answer is Invisalign®, a newer, removable type of dental aligner that is completely transparent. Invisalign trays don’t interfere with eating because of their removable nature, and mechanically work in the same way as traditional metal braces to straighten your smile. Usually, new trays are necessary every two weeks and progress between appointments can be easily monitored. Invisalign® aligning trays have revolutionized orthodontics, and are renowned for being comfortable, convenient and effective.
Six Month Smiles uses tooth-colored brackets and clear wires to straighten the teeth discretely. This system only corrects the aesthetic qualities of the smile, so treatment can take as little as 6 months. Advanced techniques and materials ensure improved comfort, hygiene and shortened treatment times. We take the best features of braces and modify the materials and procedures to give adults a convenient cosmetic solution that better fits their lifestyle. Learn More>
