Orthodontics (from Greek orthos "straight or proper"; and odous "tooth") is the specialty of dentistry that is concerned with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity, disproportionate jaw relationships, or both.
Sometime after the invention of the mirror, but no later than 1,000 B.C., ancient Greeks began using base metals and cat gut in a determined effort to take the smile provided by nature and make it better.
Today, our gifted orthodontic specialist, David Boschken DMD shapes dazzling smiles while creating optimal form and function.
Orthodontics has come a long way in just a few thousand years.
Children, teenagers, young adults, middle-aged men and women, seniors – all are taking advantage of the simplicity that distinguishes today’s orthodontics.
There are orthodontic solutions for every lifestyle and budget. Fees for orthodontic care vary with the complexity of the treatment. Why not let Boschken Orthodontics prepare a complimentary written estimate regarding anticipated treatment fees, payment options and insurance benefits?
Our practice is devoted to building beautiful smiles by bringing teeth, lips, and jaws into proper alignment. Straight teeth function better, are easier to clean, and are more likely to last your lifetime.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children see an orthodontist no later than age seven fior early intervention however, Dr. Boschken can improve tooth and jaw alignment problems at any age!
