What is Orthodontic Treatment?

Orthodontics focus on straightening crooked, tipped, rotated and misaligned teeth. Orthodontic treatment also fixes gaps between teeth and corrects under, over and cross bites.

Do I Need Orthodontic Treatment?

If you or someone you know suffers from the following, you may be a good candidate for orthodontic treatment:


Upper jaw and teeth protrude over the lower jaw when your mouth is closed.


When your mouth is closed, your teeth, and lower jaw protrude beyond your upper jaw.


One or more teeth are closer to your tongue or cheek than the corresponding teeth or tooth.

Open Bite

Your front teeth do not meet when you close your jaw.

Crowding or Spacing Issues

Your teeth are not evenly placed in your jaw.

Dental Specialties Northwest uses splints to reposition a misaligned jaw. If your teeth are worn from grinding and clenching, or TMD treatments, splints are a wonderful orthodontic solution.
