Improve Your Smile
A visit to the dentist biannually can help keep your oral health in check. However, when it comes to orthodontic problems, an orthodontic specialist is usually needed. At DeQuattro Orthodontics, Dr. DeQuattro and our dental team are dedicated to enhancing your smile for years to come.
Orthodontist specialists are dental professionals with the skills and experience to best treat orthodontic problems. They specialize in ensuring your teeth and jaw are in their proper position for optimal health. If you’re in the southern Rhode Island area and you’re looking for an orthodontist to fix your dental issues, Dr. DeQuattro can help.
What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontic treatments help ensure proper function and create healthy, beautiful smiles. Teeth that are misaligned are harder to clean and maintain and can cause abnormal wearing of tooth enamel which can lead to extensive and expensive dental procedures. Experts in this field are able to fix many orthodontic problems, including:
- Crooked teeth
- Crowding or gapped teeth
- Protrusion (under or overbite)
- Jaw growth problems
Most problems are inherited — such as spacing, and extra or missing teeth. Others can be a result of thumb and finger sucking, dental disease, accidents, the early or late loss of baby teeth, or other causes.
Our goal is to ensure our patients get the stunning smile they desire while also ensuring they’re maintaining their optimal health. Our Westerly and Wakefield office offers a variety of options to align your teeth, including:
- Gum Procedures
- Tooth Width Adjustment
For children, we also provide treatments to prevent their teeth and jaw position from worsening, these include:
- Two-Phase Treatment
