An attractive smile and improved self-image are just some of the benefits of orthodontic treatment. Alleviating and preventing physical health problems are just as important. Without treatment, orthodontic problems can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, bone destruction, chewing and digestive difficulties, speech impairments, tooth loss and other dental injuries.

Braces aren’t just for kids anymore...

Tooth alignment can be changed at any age and we offer a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups – including adults.

Procedures

What to Expect
The purpose of your first visit will be to determine if orthodontic treatment is required.

Sufficient time has been set aside for Dr. Kaka  to examine you, review any records that are available, and make recommendations about treatment. At this time, Dr. Kaka will determine if orthodontic treatment is indicated, and a letter will be sent to your general dentist informing him or her of the results of this initial examination.

What Happens Next...
If treatment is indicated, the next two procedures will be 1) to obtain diagnostic records (time permitting, this can often be accomplished at the initial appointment) and 2) to discuss the results and the evaluation of these records and present a definitive treatment plan.

Diagnostic Records
These usually consist of models of your teeth, x-rays, and photographs of both your teeth and face. We will take any records necessary to supplement those recent records which either you or your general dentist are able to provide.

Consultation Appointment
At this time, Dr Kaka will discuss with you his recommendations for treatment. Before the appointment, he will thoroughly evaluate the records and may contact any other specialists involved in your treatment. He will then work out a treatment plan and present it to you at the consultation. Any questions that you may have concerning treatment will be answered at this time. In addition, we will review medical aid coverage, if appropriate, and present payment options

Orthodontics Video

Adults and kids alike can benefit from the boost in self-confidence that comes from having a great-looking smile with beautifully aligned teeth. Orthodontic treatment can even improve chewing, speaking and oral hygiene in certain cases. And with today's virtually invisible orthodontic appliances, it's possible to keep your treatment a private matter… until your new smile is unveiled, of course! Learn more about Orthodontics.

Our orthodontic services are broken down into the following categories:

Early Orthodontic Treatment

Some bite problems are much easier to treat if they are caught at an early age. That's why all children should have an orthodontic evaluation by age 7, even if it's not yet time to begin treatment. Learn more about Early Orthodontic Treatment.

Adolescent Orthodontic Treatment

It is preferable to treat many orthodontic problems during adolescence while the body is still growing rapidly. In later years, when the bones of the face and jaws are fully developed, many conditions become more difficult (and costly) to treat. Learn more about Adolescent Orthodontic Treatment.

Adult Orthodontic Treatment

If you think you've missed your chance to have beautiful, straight teeth, think again! Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, so there's no such thing as being too old for braces. However, orthodontic treatment for adults is different in certain respects than it is for a growing child. Learn more about Adult Orthodontic Treatment.

Types of Braces

Braces are fixed orthodontic appliances attached to the teeth that normally are not removed until treatment is complete. You may already be familiar with traditional metal braces, but there are also less noticeable alternatives available. Learn more about the Types of Braces.

Invisalign® Clear Orthodontic Aligners

Invisalign Clear Aligners Video

Removable clear aligners offer adults and teens a nearly invisible alternative to traditional metal braces. They also allow easy cleaning of your teeth each day and can even be taken out for important social occasions. Learn more about Invisalign Clear Orthodontic Aligners.

Other Types of Orthodontic Appliances

We can make use of a variety of special appliances when braces alone aren't enough to move teeth into a better position, to correct various other conditions, and to secure the teeth in their new and improved position. These appliances include:

  • Orthodontic Headgear
  • Thumb & Finger Appliances
  • Orthodontic Retainers
  • Palatal Expanders
  • Temporary Anchorage Devices (TADS)

Corrective Jaw Surgery

When the relationship between the teeth and jaws is causing a serious orthodontic problem, surgery may be recommended. Conditions treated surgically may include underbites and congenital abnormalities (birth defects) related to jaw development.

Hygiene & Post-Orthodontic Care

Once you've invested in orthodontic treatment, you'll want to make sure to keep your smile healthy and looking great.

Orthodontic Emergencies

Genuine orthodontic emergencies are rare, but it's a good idea to know what can happen and what to do. Learn more about Orthodontic Emergencies.
