Morrish Orthodontics
Dr. Morrish was my wife's orthodontist when she was a child, when I told her I wanted to get my teeth straightened she made me an appointment. Dr. Morrish had me use Invisalign. My whole experience has been wonderful. I have been a patient for years, I been seen at both locations, and have nothing but good things to say. The staff is always caring and professional. We discovered I grind my teeth during the night. Badly. Dr. Stewart made me a retainer that wear only at night. It has improved my sleep and is protecting my teeth. It is one more thing that I am grateful to Dr. Morrish, Dr. Stewart, and their entire staff for.

Tips & Advices
While going to the orthodontist can be difficult, sometimes it's necessary. If you are concerned about tooth alignment, feel your jaw shift, or are experiencing problems like difficulty chewing or grinding your teeth, it's time to see an orthodontist.
There are generally three types of braces patients can be fitted for at the orthodontist:
  • The more traditional option, bands, wrap around most of a patient's tooth.
  • Brackets are the most popular, applied directly to the tooth in metal or plastic form.
  • Lingual braces are brackets attached to the back of teeth.
People of all ages can wear braces to straighten their teeth, but it is most common to be fitted for these adjustments between the ages of 10 and 14. This is the time when teeth are better able to be straightened because the head and mouth are still developing.
The American Board of Orthodontics recommends finding a dental specialist that is board-certified, offers free or reduced-price consultations, and displays qualities such as trustworthiness, ability to communicate effectively, and attentiveness.
Orthodontists must complete a four-year undergraduate program to gain admission to dental school. After earning a Doctor of Dental Science degree at an accredited four-year dental program, students must then either complete a post-degree training program or one to two years residency in orthodontics. Then they need to earn a state license in order to practice. Certain states also require board certification.
