For each patient's unique smile.

You also may be a candidate for targeted appliance therapy tailored to overcome bite-damaging habits, redirect jaw growth, or accomplish minor tooth alignment.

Sometimes treatment calls for braces along with corrective surgery to address tooth and jaw misalignment. Often referred to as surgical orthodontics, Dr. Tsintolas works closely with an oral surgeon to manage your care from start to finish.

Dr. Tsintolas works with many dentists and specialists to align teeth in preparation for crowns and bridges, implants and cosmetic procedures.

Coordinating care with a periodontist can greatly help those with gum disease better maintain their teeth and resolve the detrimental forces of an uneven bite on gum and bone health.
