A variety of tooth and jaw issues can be resolved through orthodontics. Dr. Maria Kim may point out that your teeth appear crowded or the relationship between the upper and lower teeth isn’t ideal. While treatment can start earlier in life it’s never too late for you to prepare for any needed corrective care. As time goes on Dr. Maria Kim will monitor the situation and help you decide if orthodontic treatment is right for you.
