Let Us Lift Up Your Smile
There is much literature and clinical evidence to show that early treatment is the most effective treatment to help with correction of malocclusions and facial esthetics. Our patients may range in age from 7 years to 60 or so years of age. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends examining children at 7 years of age in order to diagnosis and correct conditions which can adversely affect dental and facial growth and development. At our office we see and have treated patients of many diverse ethnicities. No malocclusion is ever the same and each patient represents a challenge we except and give the utmost attention and expertise drawing from a large bank of clinical knowledge and experience.
We look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office. During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic treatment needs.

Call our office as soon as possible if you break or loosen any of your appliances. Please do not come directly to the office. By calling us, you will allow us to create a time to see you. Even if you have a regular appointment scheduled, call us immediately to notify us if you need an appliance repaired.
Call our office immediately for advice if a bracket or wire is loosened. The bracket may need to be re-fitted as soon as possible. You may have a situation that requires cutting a wire or sliding a bracket off a wire at night or over the weekend. If you need to cut a wire in case of emergency, you may use fingernail clippers that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol. However, before cutting the wire make sure to place a gauze or cotton roll behind the end of the wire to catch it when you cut it. Please call our office the next business day, so that we may schedule an appointment for you.
Sometimes discomfort caused by a wire on your braces can be resolved by moving the wire away from the irritated area with a cotton swab or pencil eraser. If the wire will not move, try covering the end of it with a small piece of cotton or a small amount of wax. If the wire is painful, you can cut it with nail clippers or scissors that have been washed and sterilized in alcohol. If you cannot resolve the wire irritation, call our office for an appointment.
