Today, orthodontic care is appropriate for children, adolescents and adults. Orthodontic problems are often very visible. Overbites, uneven teeth and misalignment of the jaw are recognizable to most people upon casual observation. However, as a trained orthodontist, Dr. Anissi can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth while some baby teeth are still present.
Dr. Anissi can also diagnose and work with a specialist to treat children with nasal problems, poor airway intake or who are mouth-breathers with orthodontics. The results of these conditions can effect facial development and also lead to daytime fatigue, ADD/ADHD, impaired school performance and in serious cases can potentially affect brain development.
Most early orthodontics work can be done as young as five but treatment can be done through adulthood. This varies depending on each individual. Did you know that one in five orthodontic patients is an adult? There is no age limit to getting a beautiful, confident smile. With new technologies available today, more adults are receiving orthodontic treatment now than ever before.
Best yet, you can receive your orthodontic and general dentistry care in one place — right here in our office — making it convenient for parents and children alike. No more visiting the orthodontist for the care of your braces, then visiting your family dentist for your routine cleanings and exams. Dr. Anissi’s office is your one-stop shop for your family’s total dental care needs.

your child needs orthodontic care.

By using a series of clear, removable aligners, Invisalign can move your teeth into a straighter position step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. The clear aligners can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth as usual. The aligners are comfortable to wear and remove easily when you eat, brush and floss.
