A bad bite – what orthodontists call "malocclusion" – is an assessment of the way the upper and lower teeth come together. When they overlap inharmoniously, then the orthodontist considers that a bad bite. There are many possible causes, including congenital conditions of the jaws, genetics, injury, thumb-sucking and other developmental problems, and more. Malocclusion may originate with the teeth only, or it may involve misalignment of the jaws. An experienced Denver and Stapleton-area orthodontist, Dr.

Life with braces feels a little different! You'll need to care for your braces so that food doesn't get stuck around all of the wires and brackets where they'll cause decay. You'll also need to be careful about what you eat so that you don't damage, bend or break your braces. It's also really important to come to all of your scheduled appointments at our practice so that your treatment stays on track. At the end, you'll have a beautiful, attractive and healthy smile to show for it!
Many patients struggle with the decision to get braces. Although your smile will look great when the treatment is over, you may be concerned about "metal mouth."
Millions of people have been treated with Invisalign®. These clear, customized aligners work similarly to braces – that is, they gradually move the teeth over time, with minor adjustments, until the desired alignment is reached.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile, then an orthodontic evaluation may be right for you. Crooked teeth, as well as crowding, gaps between teeth and bite misalignment, are all problems an orthodontist treats, so that you can have a lasting, healthy, beautiful smile! To arrange a consultation with experienced Denver orthodontist Dr. Robert Rudman, please call our practice at 303-331-0222.
Incognito® braces are placed on the back surface of your teeth, the side that faces your tongue and the inside of your mouth. People are much less likely to see your braces when they are placed on the "lingual" side of the teeth. While Incognito® is a specific brand, this category of braces is referred to as lingual braces.
The short answer is – maybe, but only as a final option after all other alternatives have been considered. Dr. Robert Rudman has been providing orthodontics in the Denver area for decades. He has the skill to consider all possible treatment paths to creating your most beautiful, healthy smile. Although teeth removal is sometimes a part of getting braces, it isn't always the case and he can determine if there are any alternatives.
You've made it – you're reaching the end of your Invisalign® treatment and you couldn't be more excited about your beautiful new smile! Seeing the life-changing results of orthodontia are one of the many reasons we love what we do at Dr. Robert Rudman's Cherry Creek practice.
