Orthodontics in Marietta, GA

Dr. Dierkes, a nationally recognized orthodontic specialist performs orthodontics for residents of Marietta, GA.

What are Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a specialty created in the field of dentistry, primarily concerned with the study and treatment of improper bites, which may be the result of tooth irregularity and/or uneven jaw relationships. Dental displacement, as well as the control and modification of facial growth, can be the focus of orthodontic treatment.

How are Orthodontic Procedures Performed?
Comprehensive orthodontic treatment involves the insertion of metal wires into orthodontic braces, which can be made from stainless steel or a ceramic material that is more aesthetic. Teeth are moved into desired positions through interaction between the wires and the orthodontic brackets.

In diagnosis and planning of treatment, the orthodontist must first recognize the various characteristics of a dentofacial deformity or improper bite. Next, the nature of the problem must be defined, including the etiology if possible. After this, the orthodontic specialist designs a treatment strategy based on the needs and desires of the individual patient. Lastly, the treatment strategy is presented to the patient in such a manner that they fully understand the ramifications of their decision and the procedure.
