All orthodontists were once dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists. You'll want to make sure that the person straightening your teeth is a specialist orthodontist.
It’s never too early to see an orthodontist about developing dental problems. An early assessment can save time and money down the track.
Teen years are ideal for braces, as you're growing rapidly and adult teeth are formed. Treatment can be quicker and less invasive during this time.
Ready for the smile you've always dreamed of? It’s never too late to discuss treatments for crooked teeth.
