Advanced Orthodontic Care

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with issues

regarding improperly positioned jaws and teeth.

Dental braces will improve the way your smile looks, but it also improves the dental health of our patients. Orthodontic issues can be the result of genetic and environmental factors, and will need to be properly diagnosed before any treatment options can be considered and discussed. Proper diagnoses for childhood, adolescent or adult braces will include X-Rays, dental impressions and pictures. These will help the orthodontists at Garlock Orthodontics to make a more informed decision about the type of care your teeth will need.

Affordable Braces

At Garlock Orthodontics, we know that if you ignore the issue of misaligned teeth, it can lead to other serious tooth and jaw issues. Misaligned teeth will make the teeth harder to brush and care for. But in spite of all the many reasons braces will improve your health and appearance, many people are worried about what childhood, adolescent or adult braces cost. Because of this, we want to make sure that we offer affordable braces to people from all backgrounds. We will work with you in order to make this possible. If you need braces, but figure that you can’t afford them, this can lead to improper cleaning. This in turn will increase your risk of tooth decay, gum disease and eventual tooth loss. Braces may be more affordable than you think, so please contact us with any concerns!
