Orthodontics (Braces)

If teeth are misaligned, modern orthodontics offers multiple solutions, all of which depend upon the severity of the condition or the desire to achieve a more pleasing smile. A multitude of orthodontic devices or appliances, can be used at an early age to simplify later treatment, provide a better outcome, and, in some cases, avoid braces altogether. Adults, who make up at least one fifth of orthodontic patients, are also opting for straighter teeth as improved orthodontic appliances become available.

Today's braces are very different from the mouth full of metal look of the past. Braces are more efficient and more aesthetically pleasing. They are more comfortable to wear and are better at repositioning teeth.

Dr Delgado encourages his patients to have children evaluated as young as possible to diagnose bite problems early so that treatment can achieve the best possible results.
