Orthodontic Treatment

Mirela3DXray285x190Orthodontists are concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), often a result of tooth irregularity and/or disproportionate jaw relationships.

Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth. In the latter case it is better defined as “dentofacial orthopedics”.

Our practice offers all types of orthodontic treatment and we will choose and recommend various options depending on patient need.

Orthodontic problems are usually apparent from the age of 6 to 7 when the adult teeth start coming in. If the patient is seen earlier Dr Herman may be able to catch the problem before it appears and has started a pattern in your child’s mouth and jaw growth.

Treatment with removable orthodontic appliances at an early stage can prevent more serious problems from developing and/or make treatment time in braces shorter and less complicated. Early treatment may also achieve results that would not be possible once full development of the jaw and face has been completed.
