Orthodontics Palo Alto

Orthodontics Palo Alto

An orthodontist prevents and treats alignment problems in the mouth, teeth, and jaw. Using braces, retainers, and other devices, an orthodontist helps straighten a person’s teeth and correct the way the jaws line up.

Depending on the scope and seriousness of the problem being addressed, early orthodontics may be recommended for your child. Invisalign and traditional orthodontics are also an option. Dr. Adams and Dr. Aneil will continually monitor the growth and development of your child to time and plan for orthodontics.

Our Palo Alto Pediatric Dentists have Orthodontists that treat children for many problems, including crowded or overlapping teeth or problems with jaw growth and tooth development which can be genetic. These tooth and jaw problems may also be caused by tooth decay, losing baby teeth too soon, accidents, or habits like thumb sucking.

The results of orthodontic treatment can be dramatic – beautiful smiles, improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for many people of all ages. Orthodontic problems, which can result from genetic and environmental factors, must be diagnosed before treatment begins. Proper diagnosis involves taking photographs, x-rays, and dental impressions, which enable our practice to make informative decisions about the form of treatment necessary. Treatment length varies depending on age and the severity of the orthodontic problem.

Orthodontic problems require specialized care. Patients who have dental and facial irregularities should see an orthodontist.
