  • Do braces damage teeth?

    The brackets ("braces") are attached to the teeth by a special bonding system and do not harm the teeth or the enamel.

In our practice, if we note this issue over several visits, we recommend stopping active treatment and removing the braces. READ MORE

  • My 9 year old son is getting his permanent teeth, but they are not in order. What should I do?

    My best advice for you and your son is to have a consultation with a reputable orthodontist, preferably one that is Board Certified (by the American Board of Orthodontics). The AAO (American Association of Orthodontists) recommends a first orthodontic consult around age 7, especially if there are any irregularities noted. READ MORE
