Utilizing Orthodontics for a Proper Smile
Dr. Roderick A. Garcia is a Cosmetic and Family Dentist practicing in Albuquerque since 1983. Dr. Garcia is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and International Association of Orthodontists.
Dr. Garcia provides a wide range of dental procedures including Orthodontics.
Orthodontics is the movement of teeth with braces or removable appliances to position teeth correctly for esthetics and a proper bite.
Removable appliances are used with children and teenagers to expand bone and the jaws and re-position teeth.
Braces are used to correct crooked and malaligned teeth and roots for a proper bite and smile.
Invisilign type removable appliances move teeth and roots and require changing of the appliances every 1 to 3 weeks. This type of treatment will require more visits to the dental office.
Treatment time will vary depending on the individual patients orthodontic needs to correct the smile and can be 3 months to 30 months.
