Orthodontics

Non-extraction

There are many benefits to non-extraction orthodontics:

  • Treatment time is usually shorter
  • Patients have all of their teeth
  • A full, natural smile for a more attractive appearance
  • Greatly reduces excessive spacing between teeth in later adult life


If the upper teeth are protruding, this protrusion can be reduced by the use of elastics or a headgear worn at home. In a younger person, if the jaws are small and narrow, they can be made to grow larger to a more normal size by special expansion techniques in order to accommodate all of the teeth to produce a wonderful smile.
