How do I Know if I Need Orthodontics?
Only your dentist or orthodontist can determine whether you can benefit from orthodontics. Based on diagnostic tools that include a full medical and dental health history, a clinical exam, plaster models of your teeth, and special X-rays and photographs, an orthodontist or dentist can decide whether orthodontics are recommended, and develop a treatment plan that's right for you.
Orthodontic treatment is a series of processes to move poorly aligned teeth to a desirable position.
Before and After:
Orthodontics, also known as dentofacial orthopedics, In Azalea Family Dentistry deals primarily with the diagnosis, prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and the jaws.
A malocclusion can be fixed with removable or fixed appliances. Permanent teeth also could be move with clear aligners (Invisalign). We perform these treatments in our practice.

Overbite, sometimes called "buck teeth" — where the upper front teeth lie too far forward (stick out) over the lower teeth
Underbite — a "bulldog" appearance where the lower teeth are too far forward or the upper teeth too far back
Crossbite — when the upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth when biting together normally
Open bite — space between the biting surfaces of the front and/or side teeth when the back teeth bite together
Misplaced midline— when the center of your upper front teeth does not line up with the center of your lower front teeth
Spacing — gaps, or spaces, between the teeth as a result of missing teeth or teeth that do not "fill up" the mouth
Crowding — when there are too many teeth for the dental ridge to accommodateType your paragraph here.
