Orthodontic Treatment at Professional Dental
Orthodontics at Professional Dental is focused in two main areas: cosmetics, and function. The human smile is gorgeous and when the teeth are aligned properly the beauty is accentuated and we believe all patients deserve a cosmetically beautiful smile. That said the functional aspect of the teeth and getting them to fit in the perfect occlusion (location) is key to enabling our teeth to last as long as we do.
As orthodontists we are specifically concerned with diagnosing and treating tooth misalignment and irregularity in the jaw area. Initially, orthodontic treatments were geared toward the treatment of teens and pre-teens, but these days around 30 percent of orthodontic patients are adults.
There are many advantages to well-aligned teeth, including easier cleaning, better oral hygiene, clearer speech and a more pleasant smile. Though orthodontic treatment can be effective at any age, the American Dental Association suggests that an orthodontic assessment should be performed around the age of seven. The earlier orthodontic treatment begins, the more quickly the problem can be successfully resolved.
Orthodontic consults as well as orthodontic x-rays are always FREE at Professional Dental. You only pay if you decide to undergo treatment.
