  • Difficulty speaking
  • Difficulty chewing

These issues can lead to a deterioration in oral and overall health.

Common Misalignment Issues

Misalignment issues come in a variety of forms, including:

  • Crowded teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Open bites
  • Crossbites

Each requires a personalized approach to ensure the most effective and longest-lasting results. The professionals at Diamond Dental are equipped to diagnose and treat these and other oral health issues.

Teeth Straightening Process

The process of teeth straightening depends on the needs of the patient and will be tailored to meet those needs. However, the first step in the process is the initial consultation which consists of a thorough examination including imaging as well as a discussion regarding the patient’s expectations.
