Crooked Teeth, Improper Bite and Disproportionate Jaw Position – Children and Adult

Crooked teeth may lead to psychosocial and oral hygiene difficulties, and can lead to improper bites which may limit one’s bite efficiency and pronunciation.

Orthodontists are Dental Specialists who are trained in the guidance of jaw development and eruption of teeth. In addition, they are able to treat crooked teeth, improper bites and disproportionate jaw positions.

Advancements in the delivery of Orthodontic treatment have led to a variety of treatment options ranging from ceramic and metal self-ligating braces, lingual braces, clear aligner therapy and orthodontic micro-implants to accommodate the patient’s lifestyle needs.
