Dental braces (also known as braces, orthodontic brackets and wires) are devices used in orthodontics that align and straighten teeth in order to improve a person’s bite and tooth position, while also working to improve overall dental health. They are often used to correct underbites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, open bites, deep bites, cross bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural. Dental braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws in order to achieve final optimum result and dental health.
Dr. Jennifer believes in proper expansion of the palate and jaw to obtain optimum functional health rather than the typical surgical approach of serial extractions. She also believes in early childhood orthodontic intervention by guiding and modifying a child’s growth and development to achieve the best outcome.
Dr. Jennifer is experienced with both Invisalign and Dental braces. Therefore, at the orthodontic consultation, Dr. Jennifer can give you options and will let you know which treatment can provide you with the best result.
