Why visit an Orthodontist?

An orthodontist is a specialist in straightening teeth and aligning jaws. They have advanced training in orthodontics and spend 100% of their time helping patients achieve healthier smiles and better self-esteem by identifying, preventing and treating bad bites (malocclusions).
