Invisalign vs Braces: What Is The Difference?
10/28/2019

Upper diastema (space) / frenectomy
07/18/2019
There are lots of kids who have a big space between their top two front teeth. Often this is no big deal and the space is something that will close naturally as the other permanent teeth erupt. But sometimes there is a very strong muscle (frenum) between a child’s front teeth that almost acts like a spring that is pushing their front teeth apart. If you go to a family reunion and everyone you look at (on your spouse’s side of the family of course) has the same large space as your child, you would be wise to come see your orthodontist.

Dr. King kept thinking that there was nothing that she could do on a short term trip because she couldn’t put braces on someone then fly back home- as good as braces look on people, they probably don’t want them on forever.

Are You Missing Any Teeth?
01/24/2019
We see so many more patients now who are congenitally missing teeth; sometimes just one, but frequently more than one. If you remember your 8th grade science class, missing teeth is an autosomal dominant trait which means only one parent has to have the gene for it to be passed down. We see more and more missing teeth with each generation. There is an old wives’ tale that missing teeth skip a generation; meaning if your mom was missing a tooth, you might not be but your child might. Those old wives were smarter than we give them credit for because this is exactly what I see in my office.
