Orthodontists

call for appt 319-335-7287

Braces are no longer just for "kids." An increasing number of adults are looking to orthodontic treatment to solve issues they have with dental function as well as cosmetics.

Orthodontists are specialists who devote their practices to the diagnosis and treatment of misaligned bites and jaw disorders. Orthodontic treatment involves the use of corrective appliances, including braces and retainers, to straighten teeth, close spaces, and repair a corrective bite. At the College of Dentistry, orthodontists utilize "invisible braces" as well as traditional metal brackets and wires for treatment.
