Children and adults seeking orthodontic treatment at Cornerstone Dental Group can have their teeth straightened and their jaw aligned. The study and treatment of dental displacement and malocclusions is known as orthodontics. As an orthodontist, we can address any jaw-related concerns. Even if teeth are fully developed and hardened, we can move and alter them. Adults, rather than just children, can now have their teeth straightened.
Some orthodontists may solely treat children rather than adults due to the numerous expertise in orthodontia. Dentofacial orthopedics, on the other hand, is a branch of orthodontics that entails more surgical procedures to repair problems with the jaw or face. In general, an orthodontist in Massachusetts works to correct the position of teeth and the jaw, as well as the overall form and look of a patient’s face. Many of our patients are pleasantly surprised by how dramatically different they look when their orthodontic treatment is completed at Cornerstone Dental Group.
