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. Often Dr. Briscoe refers his patients to an orthodontist for care.
In select cases, Dr. Briscoe uses SureSmile 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.
