Orthodontists - Leavenworth/Lansing



Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both.

Orthodontic treatment can be carried out for purely aesthetic reasonsóimproving the general appearance of patients' teeth and face for cosmetic reasonsóbut treatment is often prescribed for practical reasons, providing the patient with a functionally improved bite (occlusion).

If the main goal of the treatment is dental displacement, most commonly a fixed multibracket therapy is used. In this case orthodontic wires are inserted into dental braces, which can be made from stainless steel or a more esthetic ceramic material.
