Orthodontics

In order to achieve or maintain a healthy and beautiful smile, orthodontic treatment may be needed. Having confidence in your smile is an important part of everyone’s self-esteem.

When an improper bite isn’t corrected, it can lead to physical problems including excess wear and sensitivity of certain teeth, pain in the jaw muscles and joints, and even gum problems. Dousman Family Dentistry works to minimize or eliminate these problems by using an array of orthodontic techniques to move teeth into more ideal alignments. Almost any bite or spacing problem can be addressed through orthodontics!

Orthodontic Services for Waukesha County Patients

Dr. Whalen provides orthodontic treatment to our regular patients, ranging from simple interceptive treatments all the way to a full set of traditional braces, allowing you to receive this specialty dental care from doctors who already know you and your teeth.

When a patient has all of their adult teeth, a complimentary orthodontic consultation can be done by Dr. Whalen to determine if there are spacing or bite problems that should be addressed through orthodontic treatment.

Orthodontist vs Dentist: What's the Difference?

While both orthodontists and dentists help patients improve oral health, dentistry is a broad specialty that deals with the teeth, gums, nerves and jaw. Orthodontics is a specialty within dentistry with a focus on correcting alignment and bites and straightening teeth.
