Whether you received your orthodontic treatment from Smile Doctors or not, we can help you retain that beautiful smile by fitting you with retainers.
Orthognathic or Maxofacial surgery is necessary to heal cleft palates, and in some cases TMJ and sleep apnea. To treat these severe conditions, we bring in the highest rated maxillofacial surgeons, working together to solve the most complex jaw alignment problems and give every patient a healed and healthy smile.
TMJ / TMD Treatment
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder – commonly known as TMJ Syndrome – is a condition suffered by teens and adults that adversely affects the joint connecting the skull and lower jaw – the temporomandibular joint – and often results in an annoying clicking sound. And because this joint is constantly used, TMJ can cause chronic pain during eating, talking or even yawning.
The good news is that Smile Doctors offers a variety of techniques to adjust your bite and effectively eliminate TMJ. These techniques can often be done whether you already have straight teeth, or while having your teeth straightened. Whatever level of symptoms, we have the expertise to cure your TMJ.
By itself, orthopedics involves the management of tooth movement.
At Smile Doctors that is only half of the equation. We specialize in dental facial orthopedics – managing tooth and facial development side by side, usually beginning in childhood. This dual treatment not only improves your smile – it maximizes the aesthetics of your entire face.
