Leawood Family Dental - OrthodonticsBoth adults and children can benefit from having straight teeth. Teeth that are crooked or crowded, spaced unevenly, or subjected to traumatic biting patterns all contribute to oral problems. The majority of problems like these can be alleviated through orthodontic therapy. It is important that children be evaluated on a regular basis to determine if orthodontics will be needed. Adults and children will be closely monitored during routine cleanings for a specialist referral.
