Orthodontics (Braces)

Orthodontic treatments correct the position, appearance and function of misaligned teeth. If teeth are improperly aligned they will not be able to function appropriately and may cause health problems. Orthodontic treatment involves use of braces depending upon the exact needs of your teeth. You may also require the treatment if your jaw or teeth development is abnormal.

Dr. Maqueira & Associates suggests orthopedic treatments for children, as they undergo rapid structural changes, and the orthopedic procedures involve some foresight in order to guide the evolving oral structures into correct alignments. Adults and teenagers tend to undergo orthodontic treatment, but early detection of malocclusions can reduce the amount of time necessary to correct alignments more efficiently. Orthodontics also effectively improve overcrowding of teeth and jaw interactions, thus providing you with a perfect smile.
