Tooth straightening can now be performed, both for children and adults. We take a unique and detailed approach to assessing of your teeth and jaws to understand what factors may have contributed to your teeth being crowded or crooked. Once this is done, the best options to straighten your teeth will be offered. This may include jaw realignment, jaw expansion (called orthopaedics) or bite correction. The actual treatment time to straighten teeth is often reduced and will be more successful long term when these other factors are considered.
