Having Problems? We Can Help.

If you or your child is finding it difficult to properly floss and brush, chew normally, or even speak clearly, it’s likely that an incorrect bite (which can be further complicated by crowding and spacing of the teeth) is the culprit. And while these dental issues may be negatively affecting you or your child’s smile, more importantly, they’re probably causing discomfort and self-esteem issues! That’s why it’s important that you and your child see your dentist regularly and discuss the best time to visit an orthodontist if you suspect problems!
