Orthodontics or orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics focuses on the treatment and correction improper bites. These irregularities can be caused by tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships or a combination of the two. Orthodontic treatment may be focused on dental displacement only or can moderate and regulate facial growth.

After graduating from dental school, orthodontists go on for another two or more years of education just in orthodontics to become experts. At Morrison Dental Associates, we are dedicated to helping your teeth and jaws work together as a unit to enable you to talk and eat properly and without discomfort. And we know straight teeth look good too!
