Orthodontics in Kansas City, MO

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry focused on correcting irregularities of the teeth and jaw, especially in how they align and fit together. There are several orthodontic treatment options available, and our team will make certain that you receive the one that is right for your personal needs.

Through orthodontics, we can correct teeth that are:

  • Misaligned
  • Crowded
  • Gapped and spaced
We can also correct problems with the alignment of the bite, including overbite, underbite, open bite, and crossbite. Orthodontic treatment is now faster, more comfortable, and more effective than in years past, making now a great time to straighten your smile. While many patients think of orthodontics as an effective way to improve the aesthetics of their smile, orthodontic treatment can also be very beneficial to your oral health and function. Correctly aligned teeth are generally at a lower risk for dental problems like tooth decay and gum disease, and orthodontics can also make it easier for you to chew, eat, and speak properly. We understand how important your smile is to both your appearance and confidence, so we offer orthodontic treatments to help get your teeth straight again. When you visit with our dentist, Dr. William D. Ledford, he can go over the options you have for aligning yours or your children’s teeth.
