Why Orthodontics?

Your Smile Is a Window!

Your smile is your greeting to the World. It's also a window to an important part of your dental health- the alignment of your teeth.

Not everyone is born with beautiful teeth. Crooked teeth or spaces between the teeth may be a source of embarrassment or self-consciousness. Improperly aligned teeth and jaws- called a "malocclusion"- also can lead to a host of sometimes painful dental disorders.

The good news is that orthodontic treatment can correct these problems…and help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile that’s good for life.

Why is treatment so important?


  • Crowded teeth, it is more difficult to properly brush and floss, which may result in tooth cavity and/or gum disease.
  • Protruding teeth when upper teeth are more forward or inclined than normal, it is more susceptible to get fractured if the patient falls, for example.
  • Crossbites, it is more probable to have abnormal growth of the jaws and uneven tooth wear.
  • Openbites, it will leave the patient with tongue-thrusting habits and speech problems.

More benefits:

  • More attractive smile
  • Better function of the teeth and better chewing
  • Increase in self-confidence
  • Increased ability to clean the teeth
  • Better long term health of teeth and gums
  • Possible decrease in temporomandibular joint problems and clenching
  • Reduce the risk of injury of extremely proclined front teeth
  • Aid in accomplishing and facilitating other dental treatments


The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children get their first orthodontic check-up at the first recognition of an orthodontic problem, but no later than age 7. Around that age, children have a mix of baby (primary) and permanent teeth. An examination as permanent teeth takes the place of baby teeth, and as the face and jaws are growing, gives us a wealth of information.

If we detect a problem, chances are we might take a "wait- and see" approach since our goal is to provide each patient with the most appropriate treatment at the most appropriate time. In other cases we might recommend early treatment that may prevent more serious problems from developing and may make treatment at a later age shorter and less complicated. In many patients early treatment achieves results that are unattainable once the faces and jaws have finished growing.


It is never too late to look and feel your best!

Today, one in four orthodontic patients is an adult. Advances in orthodontics have made treatment more comfortable and less noticeable than ever. Many of today's treatment options are designed to minimize the appearance of the appliances to better fit any life style.

What to Expect

Orthodontic care workflow



We love seeing new patients and we are excited to talk to you about your orthodontic care. We have set aside special time during your first visit to get to know you and discuss your concerns. Your first visit to our office is our opportunity to provide you with a complimentary initial examination and to evaluate you or your child's oral health. Dr. Zaha will perform a comprehensive orthodontic examination of your bite, facial contours, and facial balance. She will utilize the latest technology including a computer simulation to help diagnose each case and determine if this is the right time to begin treatment, or if further growth and development should occur. Dr. Zaha will then explain various treatment options, make recommendations and explain the reasons behind them. Fees, insurance coverage, and payment options will also be discussed. A variety of affordable payment plans are offered.



Your next visit is the "records appointment," during which diagnostic records are obtained to determine the best course of treatment. This typically includes a panoramic radiograph, cephalometric radiograph, facial and dental photographs, and impressions. Dr. Zaha uses these diagnostic records to create your customized treatment plan and to track progress as your teeth move during the course of treatment.



You will leave our office with a complete understanding of Dr. Zaha's recommended treatment plan and all of the information you need to make an informed decision regarding treatment. Dr. Zaha will answer any questions you may have. It is always our goal to make each and every visit to our practice the most rewarding and pleasant experience of your day.



After Dr. Zaha has evaluated your records, we will meet to discuss your treatment with you in detail, including the estimated treatment time, and the cost for your particular case.
