Orthodontists are dentists who have gone to school to perfect their knowledge of tooth movement, also known as orthodontics, and guidance of facial development, also known as dentofacial orthodontics. This additional education makes them experts on straightening teeth and aligning jaws.
Our Torrance orthodontist would be called in when a person has severe tooth or jaw alignment problems. Alignment problems of the jaw and teeth can cause pain, difficulty chewing, and in the most severe cases, difficulty talking. These consequences make it necessary for people with severe cases to see an orthodontist who is an expert in correcting these issues. Our expert in orthodontics in Torrance will assess the situation and decide what treatment is best for the patient.
