Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry dedicated to correcting teeth and jaws that are not positioned correctly. When teeth are crooked or do not fit together properly, it’s a lot harder to keep them clean and run the risk of early tooth loss due to tooth decay and periodontal disease. Misaligned teeth also cause extra stress on the mouth muscles, which can lead to issues such as TMJ syndrome, headaches, as well as shoulder pain. Crooked or misaligned teeth can also detract from a person’s appearance, and lead to a lack of confidence in your appearance. So come and give us a call to schedule an appointment today!

Did You know this about Braces?
Some forms of Braces are said to have been used as far back as 300BC. Archeologists have unearthed mummified bodies that clearly show metal bands wrapped around the teeth. The Romans used gold wires to accomplish teeth straightening. Wonder how that worked out? Braces came clearly to the forefront in the 18th and 19th century. In 1728, a dentist in France (Pierre Fauchard) who, as it is told, is credited with inventing modern orthodontia and braces to straighten crooked teeth. A couple of decades later, another french dentist suggested extracting premolar teeth to prevent crowding. More improvements were made in the 19th century. The appliance we know as braces pretty much came to light in the 20th century.
