Huyser Orthodontics
If you're looking for an individualized and honest approach to orthodontics, this is the practice for you. Three of my daughters have seen/are seeing Dr. Huyser and I've been very pleased with each their treatment plans.The first one just "graduated" to annual rechecks after 5 or so years of treatment and her teeth look really beautiful, the second one only needed a retainer to keep things going in the right direction (thank you for your honesty and not trying to put her in braces when a retainer would do the trick) & her teeth look amazing and the third has been really taking her time losing teeth & will soon move on to her next phase of treatment. I highly recommend Huyser Orthodontics.

Having had braces as a teenager and not wearing retainers like I should have, I found my teeth crowding again. I decided to seek out an orthodontist for retreatment. Dr. Huyser was very thorough and willing to spend the time to answer all my questions so it was an easy decision to proceed with treatment at Huyser Orthodontics. I was pleased with the finished result and felt like Dr. Huyser and staff were always looking out for my best interest. I would recommend Huyser Orthodontics to anyone and everyone.

My son just got his braces off and now he claims all the girls at school think he's "hot"! It's amazing how someone's confidence can change overnight. Thanks, Doc.
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.
