Who is an orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a licensed dentist who has completed an extra two years of specialty training in orthodontics. Not only do orthodontists provide us with beautiful smiles, but they also prevent, diagnose and treat facial and dental abnormalities. An orthodontist aligns teeth and jaws to improve smiles and oral health. After all, confidence starts with a beautiful and healthy smile.

Why get braces?Young boy with braces Defay Orthodontics

Not everyone has perfectly straight teeth, in fact, few people do. Many people think orthodontics will simply give you a beautiful and straight smile. We love creating those here at Defay Orthodontics, however there are many other problems that are corrected through orthodontics. Some of these problems include; crowded teeth, underbites, overbites, cross bites, incorrect jaw position and disorders of the jaw joints. If you have any of these abnormalities you may need braces, because your bite is as important as the aesthetics of your teeth. Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean, and reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Also, correcting your bite can prevent speaking, biting, breathing, or chewing problems.
