A better life for your beloved companion.

Healthy Mouth

When you think of orthodontics, most people picture metal brackets connected by elastic bands to correct various dental problems, such as a malocclusion (the teeth don’t fit together properly) and crooked teeth. The practice of moving a tooth into a different position in the mouth may sometimes be painful, but the end result can be a prettier smile and a mouth that is healthier and more functional. But why would we fix crooked teeth in a pet?


The answer is: to make a pet’s mouth healthier and less painful. This is a key difference from human orthodontics—we are not aiming for the perfect smile; we are aiming for the most comfortable smile!
