Hello, There are many factors that determine the need for orthodontic treatment. It is important to have a comprehensive exam to make sure there are no risk factors that would compromise the treatment. More often than not, an overbite or overjet can be corrected with orthodontics. However, when there is a huge bone discrepancy, it might require a more involved protocol. Every case is different, so it is important to get a comprehensive evaluation. Greetings, Dr. Branigan READ MORE
Gum inflammation does not go away on its own. It could be mild, moderate or severe. Localized to a specific area or spread out. In most cases it is due to lack of proper dental hygiene, though there are other factors that could contribute to it, like hormonal changes or medications. It is very important to visit your dentist for an evaluation. READ MORE

Dentistry, also known as Dental and Oral Medicine, is a branch of medicine that consists of the study, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases, disorders, and conditions of the oral cavity. Dentists diagnose and treat dental issues and help patients develop better oral hygiene regimens. They clean teeth, correct bite issues, perform surgeries and extractions, and perform other duties to ensure that the teeth and mouth are healthy.
Outside of practicing dentistry, Dr. Branigan enjoys any kind of outdoor activity, including running, hiking, and biking, as well as writing, reading, doing yoga, meditating, cooking, baking, and traveling. Her favorite place to vacation is at the beach.
