Your dentist might refer you or your child to visit an Orthodontist for the following reasons:

  • Teeth and jaw related problems
  • Upper front teeth can stick out and look unsightly. These “major” teeth are more likely to be damaged
  • The way the upper and lower jaw meet can cause teeth to look unsightly and lead to an incorrect bite
  • When the teeth don’t meet correctly, this can cause strain on the muscles of the jaw, causing jaw and joint pain problems and some headaches
  • Appearance: You or your child may not like the way your teeth look
  • Orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age
