Orthodontics is the treatment of improperly positioned teeth. We can use functional appliances as well as fixed braces which apply gentle pressure to move teeth into the desired position. Orthodontics straightens teeth, brings your bite into alignment and improves both the appearance and function of your teeth. Crowded, crooked or protruding teeth are more difficult to keep clean and are vulnerable to gum disease as you age. Treatment may take anywhere from several months to a couple of years, depending on the nature of the problem. Treatment during childhood usually takes less time because the teeth and jaws are still developing. Treatment for both children and adults can be achieved with excellent results. Invisalign treatment will be available in the near future.
ENDODONTICS If a tooth is damaged by decay or injury, the canals inside the root of the tooth may become infected. If the infection is not treated, it can lead to severe pain, abscess and tooth loss. Fortunately, the infection can be removed from the tooth and and the tooth can be restored to normal function. This treatment is also known as a root canal. Root canal treatment is one of the most successful of all dental procedures and enables you to keep your teeth for your lifetime.
