  • Are you avoiding to smile because of misaligned teeth?
  • Having to deal with tooth & jaw pain when you chew or bite hard foods?
  • Have you felt like your poorly aligned teeth have been affecting your speech?

If your answer is YES, to any of the questions, it is high time you take advantage of orthodontic treatments.

What do orthodontic treatments do?

We can’t deny that orthodontics can help you get that beautiful smile & attractive teeth which will increase your self-confidence, benefit your social and professional life.

But the good news is, orthodontics doesn’t just help with looks. It can also correct several other problems you almost certainly hadn’t considered. It will help you bite, chew, and speak better!

Correct tooth alignment is important for healthy teeth, & good oral health is a must for overall health. Having good oral health not only prevents diseases but also lets us enjoy a healthy life. It makes us feel good about ourselves when we smile.

Orthodontics uses the body’s natural ability to regenerate its tissue by using consistent, light force to slowly and gently move teeth into better positions and reshaping a bone.

It involves changes in jawbones, facial bones and soft tissue as teeth are moved into their new positions.

What is the difference between an orthodontist and a dentist?

Orthodontists and dentists are not different than one another as both strive to achieve beautiful & healthy smiles. However, dentists cover a broad range of oral health issues including gum disease, broken teeth, tooth decay and missing teeth. Orthodontists, on the other hand, are dentists that are focused only on tooth and jaw alignment.

Nevertheless, dentists working together with orthodontists results in the best overall dental health. At Golden Square Dental we help patients achieve that perfect smile they’ve always dreamt of having.

What problems can Orthodontics treatments fix?

There was once a time of chunky metal braces, bands and headgears. Today it has completely changed. Now, orthodontic treatments are designed to be as comfortable as possible so patients can avoid embarrassment or discomfort and helps fix problems like:

  • Misaligned teeth & jaws
  • Speech, breathing or chewing difficulties
  • Underbite & open bite

  • Gaps between the teeth
  • Crooked Teeth, with Invisalign & braces

  • Braces

    Every set of braces is unique. Our dentists will help you determine how to properly straighten your crooked teeth or correct a misaligned bite.

  • Retainers

    After braces are removed, retainers are used to keep teeth aligned. Retainers keep teeth from shifting back to their original position.
