Ok…by definition, the word Orthodontics is the correction of teeth irregularities. The word Orthodontics comes from the Greek word orthos meaning “straight or proper” and odous meaning tooth. At Smile Builders, this can be a 12-month to 3-year process initially designed to improve the overall function and esthetic appeal of teeth. From overbites to crooked or miss-spaced teeth, our treatments are designed to correct problems that affect both the health and appearance of our patients.
