Orthodontic Services

Orthodontic treatment is an outstanding investment in the overall health and psychological well-being of children and adults. 

Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain over a long period of time. This may contribute to conditions that cause not only tooth decay but also eventual periodontal (bone and gum) disease and tooth loss.

Other orthodontic problems can contribute to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on the gum tissue and bone that supports the teeth, or misalignment of the jaw joints, which may result in chronic headaches or pain in the face and/or neck.

Why is orthodontic treatment important?

When left untreated, many orthodontic problems become worse. Specialty orthodontic treatment by Dr. Hendrix to correct the original problem often proves less costly than the additional dental care that may be required to treat more serious problems that ultimately develop in later years.

Finally, the value of an attractive smile should never be underestimated. A pleasing appearance is a vital asset to one’s self-esteem. A person’s self-confidence often improves as orthodontic treatment brings the teeth, lips, and face into proper balance and proportion. In this way, orthodontic treatment can improve one’s social life and career success with a resulting improvement in general attitude and outlook on life. Before orthodontic treatment begins, Dr. Hendrix will develop a custom treatment plan involving procedures appropriate for your individual situation and goals.

Three Steps In Formulating An Orthodontic Treatment Plan

  1. Orthodontic Examination and Orthodontic Records
    The first step in determining your customized treatment plan is learning as much about your orthodontic condition as possible. This begins with a comprehensive orthodontic examination, during which your teeth, bite, face, and profile are evaluated. Dr. Hendrix and his team will then collect a complete set of orthodontic study records, which typically includes plaster study models of your teeth, special pictures of your head, teeth and jaw joints, digital photographs, and your medical-dental history. This information is used to help explain the problem, determine the optimal course of orthodontic treatment, and propose treatment options that satisfy your personal goals and objectives.
  2. Planning and Consultation
    Custom Treatment PlanAfter examining you and studying your orthodontic records, Dr. Hendrix will design a customized treatment plan especially for you. He will discuss any significant concerns or limitations to your treatment, and you will have an opportunity to discuss the topics raised in our easy-to-read information booklet entitled “Welcome to Hendrix Orthodontics- Informed Consent For The New Orthodontic Patient.” After all of your questions have been answered to your satisfaction and you have authorized us to do so, we will begin your personalized treatment plan.
  3. Dental Checkups and Care
    We are committed to maintaining healthy gums and teeth. Before orthodontic treatment begins, it will be necessary to visit your general (family) dentist for a checkup. This is especially true for adult patients. Once orthodontic therapy begins, you will be expected to continue to see your family dentist for regular three to six-month checkups and routine care. Routine, preventative dental care will help ensure the best possible results from your orthodontic therapy at Hendrix Orthodontics.
