Orthodontics is a dental specialty that involves correcting teeth and jaws that are improperly aligned. Here at Leggett Orthodontics, we are proud to offer our patients the best and most up-to-date orthodontic services.
Our orthodontists evaluate and treat many different problems associated with the teeth, jaws, and airway. While orthodontics many times is considered cosmetic, it also improves function. It is important to fix these problems for a healthy mouth. Teeth that are crooked or do not line up are the perfect place for food and bacteria to hide. They can also be harder to clean, leading to cavities and other problems down the line. Orthodontics can also improve eating and even a patient’s speech in some cases.
The goal in treating problem teeth and jaws is to ensure our patients have healthy, beautiful smiles in the future. How can these problems be fixed? Braces are the most common treatment, though we also treat our patients with Invisalign and other individualized appliances.
