Braces at JM Dierkes Orthodontics & TMJ

What Are Braces?

Braces are used to address a number of issues with one’s teeth, including spacing issues of the teeth and bite issues. Braces are made up of a series of brackets which are adhered to teeth with wires threaded through them. Using gentle pressure, braces can correct alignment and bite problems. At each appointment, the wires are tightened to move the teeth steadily over time until the desired result is achieved.

Are Braces Right for Me?

  • Crossbite, openbite, and underbite

To determine if braces are suitable in your situation, Dr. Dierkes will perform a consultation and examine your teeth. If braces are a good option for you, Dr. Dierkes will design a treatment plan that is specific to your needs.

Why Choose Dr. Dierkes?

Dr. Dierkes is committed to providing patients with a naturopathic approach to orthodontic and TMJ treatments. His “All Things Considered” approach to orthodontic treatment carefully considers the relationships among teeth, bone, muscles, TMJ, airway, food allergies, nutritional deficiencies and excesses, and endocrine balances and how each will affect the treatment of the patient.

With a holistic approach to the care he provides, Dr. Dierkes believes in patient education and effective communication which allows each patient to make informed choices about their care and treatment as well as fosters a positive working relationship between doctor and patient. While the naturopathic approach may take more time, the outcome is better for the patient, and the results extend beyond orthodontics and facial esthetics to improve the patient’s overall health.
