Orthodontics

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that specializes in the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental and facial irregularities. The technical term for these problems is “malocclusion,” which means “bad bite.” The practice of orthodontics requires professional skill in the design, application and control of corrective appliances, such as braces which bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment which achieves facial balance.

Orthodontic treatment can improve your dental health and change your facial appearance for the better. Which will help boost your self-esteem. It can provide you with the chance to participate in improving the way you look. Patients often feel more self-confident even before the actual treatment is completed.

Our Work in Orthodontics

We provide a full range of Orthodontics from children to adults. From conventional braces to functional retainers and clear braces we can help you get the smile you desire.

We are proud to announce the addition of a brand new system for braces called the Invisalign® System, which allows adult patients to straighten their teeth – WITHOUT BRACES. A series of clear custom aligners are used to straighten the teeth. The great thing is – the aligner is almost invisible so you can get results without announcing the treatment to the world. Because it is removable, brushing and flossing are made simple without having to worry about wires, brackets, and bands. Furthermore, there are no restrictions on what you can eat.

Dr. Sjuts is also trained in the SLX Clear Aligner system, which is similar to Invisalign but with a few slight differences. Due to the design and fit of these aligners very few if any attachments on your teeth are needed to achieve the desired results. They also provide excellent clarity and blend right in with your natural teeth.

During your consultation we will review each of the treatment options to determine which is the best approach to make your smile a smile to remember.
