Orthodontics

This is a dental profession specialty that concerns itself with proper bite.  Orthodontists want you to have perfect straight teeth. If they are not, they can attach wires that help force teeth to align properly. We call them braces. Modern techniques include the product Invisalign and Suresmile. Retainers are used as a post therapy to maintain teeth in their proper position sometimes for six months or more.
