What is Orthodontia?

Our Orthodontists treat children, teenagers and adults whose teeth are crooked, or whose jaws are not correctly aligned. They often treat bite problems caused by the upper and lower teeth not ‘fitting together’ properly.

Teeth alignment can be achieved through several types of orthodontic appliances such as Invisalign. Removable orthodontic appliances are usually applied to children, in which all the teeth have not yet come out, while fixed orthodontic appliances with metal or ceramic plates which have consistency, can be applied to both children and adults.
Invisalign represents another treatment for adults and adolescents. It is an orthodontic appliance which has a transparent plastic form.
Excellent doctor!!!Very thorough and caring. I'm terribly afraid of the dentist and he's very sensitive to that and goes the extra mile to make you feel comfortable.
He is a professional and has a naturally lovely personality. I would recommend Dr. Mentor to everyone. He is the best dentist I have ever had.
