Teeth that are unattractive or poorly functional because they are badly out of alignment, really should be straightened by some Orthodontic means.
There are many new modalities of treatment in Orthodontics today and I am proud to work in partnership with some of the best Orthodontists around to help my patients get the right treatment.
I myself have considerable training and experience in bite issues and orthodontics and, if best for my patient, I will perform limited orthodontics for them.
Most often this employs a series of clear appliances like Invisalign, Clear Correct, or the Raintree Essix systems.

Severe crowding of upper incisors yet treatment was completed with removable invisalign appliances aided by careful re-shaping of the sides of all 6 upper incisors. treatment time 8 months.
