Project Description

Orthodontics

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry specializing in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of jaw, face and bite irregularities (malocclusions*).  Orthodontic treatment is provided by an oral health care provider known as an orthodontist, who has completed two to three years of additional training beyond dental school.

Recent years have brought about many changes within the dental industry, specifically with regards to orthodontic treatment and care.  Now more than ever patients are experiencing fewer incidences of cavities and missing teeth due to the heightened awareness of fluoride use and preventative dentistry.   This increasing awareness on the health and look of a patient’s smile has fueled the desire for many to seek out orthodontia not only as a medical necessity, but for cosmetic reasons as well.

Whether it’s traditional braces or custom made removable appliances, orthodontics can help you have the healthy, straight, beautiful smile you’ve been waiting for!

Give us a call today and schedule your orthodontic consultation!

*Malocclusion is the technical term for teeth that don’t fit together correctly.  Malocclusions not only affect the teeth, but also the appearance of the face.  Most malocclusions are inherited; however some are due to acquired habits such as thumb sucking and tongue thrusting.  The spacing left from an adult tooth being extracted or an early loss of a baby tooth can also contribute to a malocclusion.

JOHN BLAKEY

I have been very lucky all my life in having good dental care, but after almost 70 years I have never had such caring, fun and excellent care as I get from Dr. Henshaw and his staff. They are all the best. I feel as though they are my extended family, (the ones you enjoy spending time with!). If you are uncomfortable with dental care or uneasy at all, Please give Dr. Henshaw a chance. You’ll never regret it. You’ll be amazed at what the best dental care is. When you call for your apt. just let them know your nervous and your special care will begin. You’ll never regret it.

I honestly can’t say enough great things about Dr. Henshaw and his staff. I went being terrified of going to the dentist to actually looking forward to seeing them….. Great people with outstanding patient care.
