As an orthodontic specialist, Dr. Marshall is dedicated to correcting dental and facial irregularities. Her specific qualifications in the design, application and control of corrective appliances will bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment for optimal facial balance.
Children: Some children may benefit from Early Treatment (Phase I). Others may benefit from space maintenance, if they experienced early loss of primary (baby) teeth. Even if treatment is not recommended at an early age, Dr. Marshall and her team always look forward to seeing kids on a yearly basis. This is known as Recall, or Observation; Dr. Marshall monitors patient growth to determine the best time to start treatment, if necessary.
Teenagers: Adolescents can be great candidates for orthodontic treatment. In addition to enhanced aesthetics, a straighter smile also offers significant health benefits including improved speech and better access for oral hygiene. Children and teenagers are ideal candidates for orthodontic treatment. Because the jawbone is soft and still growing, a young patient’s smile is particularly receptive to re-alignment.
Adults: We also treat adults! Many adults may feel they’re too old for treatment. But with the average life expectancy gradually increasing this could mean decades of living with the benefit of orthodontic treatment. Why wait any longer? Even if you just want to straighten your teeth rest assured that Dr. Marshall will create a dedicated treatment plan to address your goals.
Dr. Marshall treats crooked and crowded teeth as well as bite correction. Because it’s more than “just straightening” teeth.
