It might be time to visit the orthodontist when you suspect any of the following conditions: crooked teeth, crowded teeth, an overbite, an underbite, bite problem (malocclusion), teeth grinding (bruxism), sleep apnea, jaw pain (TMJ), or teeth spacing.

Some of these conditions may be purely cosmetic, but some can adversely affect overall functional dental health.

People of all ages can undergo orthodontia to improve the appearance and/or the function of their teeth. To best learn if you're a candidate for orthodontics treatment is to visit Dr. Skelton for a free initial orthodontics evaluation. The evaluation includes a thorough examination and x-rays to be able to see the health and status of all of the teeth and the jaw bone.

Dental Braces for Adults and Children

When it comes to dental braces, most people share the same concerns: Are they ugly? Do they hurt? How long will I have to wear them? Are they expensive? If you have any of these questions, don't worry ... we're here to help you determine what's going to work best to get you the results you're looking for.

At Skelton Orthodontics, PLLC, our slogan is "Your smile is our signature." This means that above all, we take a complete and comprehensive approach to orthodontics to get you a beautiful smile with long-lasting results. In other words, we don't look good unless you look good.

And where other orthodontists might take short cuts which can compromise the effectiveness and permanence of treatment, we don't. Why? Because not every set of teeth is the same, and so not every treatment will be the same. Doctor Skelton is highly trained and experienced at determining what kind of dental braces and orthodontics treatment plan will work best for you or your loved one.

Also know that we use the latest, state-of-the-art technology such as safer, low-radiation digital imaging and photography using Dolphin Imaging and Management. This allows us to quickly, safely take highly accurate images of your teeth to best determine the best orthodontics plan for you.

"All three of our children completed orthodontic work at Skelton Orthodontics. We are very pleased with the results ... the staff is pleasant, accommodating and caring ... We had gotten another estimate of services from another orthodontist and Skelton Orthodontics was much more reasonable ... A great investment that will last a lifetime."

- W.C., Colorado Springs

"We had gone to another orthodontist for our older son and the care was OK, but there always seemed to be other hassles and it felt like we were rushed through his braces ... So, we switched to Dr. Skelton for our younger son and have been very happy with the results and service. Very, very friendly people and they always explained everything to us in great detail. Never felt rushed. Highly recommend."
