Orthodontics and You

At Mechanicsburg Family Dentistry, our dentist may recommend using braces or retainers to modify your dental alignment. Although braces and retainers can straighten your teeth, they can also correct jaw alignment issues, among others. This guide will give you a detailed explanation of how this specific orthodontic treatment improves your dental health and the different types of braces we offer.


The Myobrace® System is preventive pre-orthodontic treatment that focuses on addressing the underlying causes of crooked teeth, often without the need for braces or extraction of teeth, unlocking natural growth and development. Treatment is best suited to children aged 3 to 15 and involves using a series of removable intraoral appliances that are worn for one to two hours each day and overnight while sleeping.
