Orthodontics / Braces

Just as there are specialists in medicine, there are specialists in dentistry. Orthodontists are dental specialists who dedicate their professional lives to correcting misaligned teeth and jaws. Orthodontists diagnose, treat and prevent dental and facial irregularities. They are uniquely trained to straighten teeth and align jaws.
