If you’re struggling with facial or cranial pain brought about by any orthodontic issue, your ideal recourse is to speak with an orthodontist. Having undergone specialized education on the intricate complexities in treating bite problems, an orthodontist is the best person to approach to help you manage tooth misalignment problems or facial structure irregularities.

Make no mistake; an orthodontist is still a dentist. But while a dentist deals with dental disorders, an orthodontist has a more exhaustive knowledge of the inner workings of your jaw and facial muscles. With his in-depth learning, the latter can properly align your jaw and teeth. This will help you to obtain relief from any orthodontic discomfort that you may be suffering.

On account of his highly specialized knowledge, an orthodontist can make you look and feel good. He can relieve the pain and correct any irregularities so you can speak or eat normally, free from difficulties.

That’s what we do here at Redwood Orthodontics. We are dedicated to creating beautiful, healthy smiles for patients of all ages. The aligning of misaligned teeth, bites, and jaws are our specialties.
