At our practice we strive to improve the standard of dental care for children as well as adults. Orthodontics in general, provides restoration of a healthy periodontium, optimal chewing function, and pleasant aesthetics. Adult patients present with complex oral problems that require treatment in several dental specialties. Children who present with jaw deficiencies also benefit from early functional appliance therapy and interceptive treatment which can prevent a malocclusion from developing.At the time of clinical evaluation the patient is made aware of “realistic” goals and treatment outcomes as opposed to “ideal” treatment outcomes. At the first appointment, a clinical examination, intra-oral and extra-oral photographs and x-rays are taken. A detailed medical and dental history is recorded. Impressions of the teeth and bite are also recorded to create study casts as part of diagnostic records.
