Braces & Invisalign Treatment in Denver & Cherry Creek, CO

We use only the latest in cutting-edge orthodontic technology in our office, ensuring your treatment is as safe, effective, and convenient as possible. We treat a wide variety of orthodontic conditions in our office, but most cases fall under the category of these common problems.

Underbite

This is when the lower jaw protrudes past the upper jaw, causing problems with appearance and bite function.

Spacing

Spacing issues occur when there are gaps between teeth, compromising the function and appearance of the smile.

Protruding Upper Front Teeth

This happens when the upper front teeth extend out too far over the lower teeth, which causes problems with both the appearance and function of the smile. We'll commonly treat this with interceptive orthodontic treatment.

Crowding

Crowding occurs when the dental arch doesn't have enough room for all the teeth, causing them to grow in crooked or misaligned. This is another condition that often benefits from early orthodontic treatment.

Crossbite

Crossbite forms when the lower teeth sit on the outside of the upper teeth, causing problems with bite function and sometimes inducing TMD (jaw joint disorder).

Overbite

Overbite occurs when the upper dental arch extends out over the lower one, impacting the look and function of the smile.

Openbite

Often caused by early childhood habits like tongue thrusting or persistent thumb sucking, openbite is characterized by the upper and lower front teeth not connecting. This can impair speech, chewing ability, and the appearance of the smile.

Mismatched Dental Midlines

This occurs when the back of the bite doesn't match up properly, impairing the function of the bite and the jaw.
