Most traditional dental practices concentrate on healthy teeth while referring patients to an orthodontist to correct any type of problem with malocclusions or bite. Although this is perfectly acceptable, it is inconvenient and unsettling for many patients.
At the dental office of Dr. Dawn Gayken, DDS, PLLC, you and your family can trust the same caring staff that you’ve grown comfortable with to serve your every dental need including orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry.
Orthodontists concentrate on correcting the way that your teeth fit together including:
- Improper bites
- Teeth crowding
- Jaw misalignment
- Crooked teeth
To correct these problems, the patient is usually fitted with a set of dental braces to move the teeth into the correct alignment. The realignment occurs gradually over a period of time with most patients receiving about one millimeter of movement each month.
During this time, your progress will be monitored in order to adjust your braces for the best final result. Dental braces not only improve your appearance, but they also support your overall dental health.
We offer the following orthodontic services:
- Invisalign Braces or Clear Braces
