At Senestraro Family Orthodontics we offer other treatments that compliment your orthodontic care.
Post Orthodontic Care
Most people think orthodontic treatment is over after they get their braces off or finish their series of aligner trays. However, keeping your teeth in their proper position is just as important as moving them there. For this reason, the use of a retainer after your treatment is complete is crucial.

Protecting your investment is almost as important as the treatment itself. A retainer is a critical appliance that will keep your teeth in their proper position. Without it, your teeth will slowly shift back out of alignment. Unfortunately, your periodontal ligaments will want to move your teeth back to where they were before. Over time, these ligaments will "lock" your teeth in place with the use of a retainer.

If your child has recently lost a baby (primary) tooth due to trauma, injury, or any other unexpected reason, they may need an orthodontic appliance known as a space maintainer. A space maintainer can help establish a strong foundation for your child’s oral health that follows them into adulthood.

If you have an impacted tooth, it doesn't necessarily mean that a tooth is infected, although sometimes that can happen. An impacted tooth is stuck inside your gum or jawbone. Sometimes, canine teeth get because it is being blocked by another tooth. Sometimes, the canine teeth refuse to erupt and take their place on top of your gumline.

Orthognathic (Jaw) Surgery
Our jaw is perhaps the most overlooked aspect of our oral health. If you suffer from jaw-related problems, you may qualify for orthognathic surgery. Orthognathic, or corrective jaw surgery, typically addresses the intricacies of occlusion (the way your teeth fit together).
