Orthodontics Q & A

by Anishka Frankenberry, DDS

Is orthodontics more than metal braces?

Dr. Frankenberry uses a number of different appliances to correct her patients’ teeth. Orthodontics can include both fixed appliances, such as metal braces and retainers, or removable appliances, such as retainers, headgear, and appliances that correct your jaw position.

The word “orthodontics” comes from the Greek words for “straight” and “tooth.” Orthodontics requires special training in the science of teeth irregularities. Dr. Frankenberry can effectively straighten your teeth using a variety of techniques, so you can be confident about your smile.

How can orthodontics help adults?

Orthodontics aren’t just for children with developing teeth. The position of your teeth as an adult can affect your smile, too, as well as the way you speak and eat. Dr. Frankenberry has patients in all age groups, and her caring manner isn’t just reserved for kids. She was an orthodontics patient herself, so she knows what it’s like to go through treatments designed to straighten teeth. Make an appointment with Dr. Frankenberry, and she’ll use her expertise to give you straighter teeth and a beautiful smile.

Will thumb sucking ruin a child’s teeth?

Thumb sucking can lead to “buck teeth.” This means the upper front teeth are too far forward. You can bring your child to Dr. Frankenberry’s office for a complete assessment of his teeth and his bite. She’ll recommend the proper age to begin treatment to repair damage caused by sucking his thumb.

How is Dr. Frankenberry different from other dentists?
