Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry that involves changing the position of teeth in your mouth, using braces or other orthodontic technologies. Orthodontics can be used to treat problems with how the teeth of your upper & lower jaws line up, known as a bad bite. Called malocclusion by dentists, examples of bad bites are underbites, overbites, & crossbites. Orthodontics can also be used to straighten teeth & fix spacing problems (such as gaps or crowding).
Orthodontic treatments can give you the beautiful & straight smile you desire, but they can also benefit your oral health. Orthodontics can help prevent jaw problems that can arise from a misaligned bite & teeth that are properly spaced & aligned are easier to keep clean. So while you’ll certainly have a more beautiful smile at the end of your orthodontic treatment, you’ll also have a more functional, healthier smile!

Fastbraces® are an affordable alternative to traditional braces. Originally designed in 1992, Fastbraces® are available through trained & certified dentists at locations nationwide. Dr. Parkin is proud to be a member of this growing group.
Fastbraces® work differently than traditional braces. Ordinarily, orthodontic devices move tooth roots first & then crowns in a long, multi-step process. The unique design of Fastbraces® enables us to move those roots & crowns at the same time, drastically reducing treatment time. With Fastbraces®, you can expect to find success in months, not years.
