If you’ve noticed possible orthodontic issues for you or your child, it’s important not to ignore them or put them off until another day.


Tell-tale signs you could benefit from an appointment with a specialist orthodontist can include misaligned or overcrowded teeth, teeth grinding or clenching and difficult chewing or biting.

Other signs can include worn tooth enamel, missing teeth, speech impediments, early or delayed loss of baby teeth and recurrent biting of the cheek or roof of the mouth.

Children’s orthodontist

Thumb or finger sucking could also be a good reason to visit the orthodontist.

Some of these signs relate to children.

Others can also relate to adults.


It’s important to understand that orthodontic treatment is not just for teeth that are still growing.

Striving for a straight, good looking smile can be transformative whatever your age.

A new smile gives patients of all ages a confidence boost and also improves their overall dental health.

If you feel uncomfortable about a crooked or gappy smile, it makes sense to schedule a consultation with a specialist orthodontist.

Treatment includes subtle, fixed metal braces or ceramic braces with clear brackets.

Lingual braces, meanwhile, attach to the back of the teeth for maximum discretion.
