Guthrie Orthodontists take a modern approach to straightening and repairing teeth. Our orthodontists offer dental corrections for children as young as age five, adolescents and adults of all ages. A variety of orthodontic treatments are available to address patients' dental concerns, including traditional braces, transparent aligners (may be appropriate as an alternative to braces) or other dental appliances.
People may inherit poorly aligned teeth; have problems due to thumb or pacifier sucking, facial trauma, dental disease, early or late loss of baby teeth, or craniofacial abnormalities that restrict breathing, chewing or speaking. The orthodontists at our Towanda, PA, office are experienced at treating all these dental health issues.
Some of the most common reasons dental issues treated by orthodontists:
- Crowding (too many teeth)
- Diastema (gap between front teeth)
- Open, overbite or underbite
- Protruding upper teeth
- Spaced teeth
