Orthodontics: An Overview

Orthodontics

Orthodontists specialize in aligning the teeth and correcting bite issues. Orthodontics was the first recognized dental specialty.

As one of the best orthodontists in Westchester, Dr. Frank Celenza specializes in offering adult orthodontic care. Through years of focused orthodontic study, Dr. Celenza has mastered the art of aligning the teeth in an effective, and lasting way—creating excellent results for the patients of Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale.

Bite problems can also impact your jaw alignment, which can cause muscle strain, headaches, or shoulder pain.
