Modern orthodontics has its roots in very ancient civilizations, such as the Greeks and Etruscans. Even mummies have been found with gold or metal wires around their teeth! Orthodontia is used to correct a variety of alignment issues, such as under- or overbites, crooked teeth, and other flaws.
Dr. Briscoe can fit both children and adults with metal or ceramic braces, monitoring and adjusting the appliances until the desired form and function are achieved. In select cases, Dr. Briscoe uses Clear Correct invisible aligners to correct an adult’s bite. Once orthodontic treatment is complete, there may be options to further enhance your or your child’s smile with cosmetic dentistry.
