Braces and Orthodontics
Orthodontics is a type of dentistry performed to correct the alignment of teeth and jaws, using devices including braces, plates, and headgear
Here at Ashgrove West Dental, our dentists can assess the alignment including overbites, underbites, crossbites, as well as spaced or crowded teeth. Correct alignment of teeth are necessary to ensure proper functioning of teeth. Misalignment can cause problems with speech and chewing capabilities, as well as damage to the teeth and gums. Our dentists will discuss the options to correct any problems, and if orthodontic treatment is needed, we are able to refer patients to a specialist.
