We’re smiling that you’re here.

At Orthodontic Specialties, Dr. Murphy believes that everyone can have a beautiful smile. Enhancing your smile and developing beauty in the face is what orthodontics and facial orthopedics is all about. Nothing brightens up a room and breeds confidence in a person more than a wonderful smile. Being self-conscious about a poor smile and crooked teeth can be very distracting and cause feelings of inadequacy. Orthodontics can help build a positive self-image.

Focus for Children and Teens

Our Focus for Children and Teens

In growing children, the arches can usually be developed to catch up in growth and fill out the smile in order to make room for all the teeth. Teeth are rarely removed in a child as this can prematurely age the face and flatten the profile. Permanent teeth are destined for the adult face. We don't want to build a smile that a patient will grow out of. Our goal is to help nature express the development and enhance the beauty.

Our Focus for Adults

As an adult, your goal should be to preserve your teeth throughout your entire life. Proper alignment helps keep the teeth and gums clean, prevents bone loss and minimizes wear. In essence, it slows the aging process. At Orthodontic Specialties, we use the latest technology to properly diagnose your individual problems and design a treatment plan that works for you. Your teeth will not only look good but also function properly.
