About Orthodontics Services at PORTH


Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that focuses on the prevention and correction of malpositioned teeth and jaws. Orthodontists promote oral health by targeting issues like malocclusion, improper jaw alignment, crooked teeth, spacing, missing teeth and crowded teeth. By treating some of the underlying orthodontic problems that lead to tooth decay and tooth loss, orthodontists help their patients maintain healthy teeth and gums as well as boost their confidence with a beautiful smile.


Orthodontic appliances like clear plastic aligners (commonly known as Invisalign), metal brackets, or lingual braces, work by slowly and constantly moving teeth into a proper position until they are aligned. Conventional braces can be made of metal, ceramic, or plastic, and some are practically invisible. In some cases, seeing an orthodontist for preventative diagnosis and care can help avoid more costly dental procedures later.


Orthodontic treatments are not limited to traditional metal braces for children. Although children and teenagers are still the majority of an orthodontist's patients, the popularity of orthodontic treatment among adults is on the rise. This increase is largely attributed to the availability of various types of braces, such as lingual braces, and clear aligners, which offer discreet and effective solutions for adults seeking dental alignment.

Popular Treatments for Kids


Our Approach to Orthodontic Child Needs

Choosing the Best time to start treatment

The American Association of Orthodontists encourages parents to take their child to see an orthodontist by the age of 7 for an initial examination. Rest assured, Dr. Rooz does not believe in over-treating children. We’ll monitor your child and determine the right time to intervene.

Phased Treatment

Two phase treatment allows orthodontists to correct dental problems while a kid transitions between baby teeth and adult teeth. Managing space for adult teeth to replace baby teeth is critical. 

Successful early treatment (child's braces) in kids addresses structural problems that would otherwise require teeth extractions or surgery, which can become more complicated with age. Early treatment also helps protect flared upper front teeth from injuries mostly leading in tooth fracture.

growth modifcation

Orthodontists can redirect skeletal growth in children using early treatment. An expander on upper teeth is an example of orthodontic treatment that fixes a small upper jaw. Reverse pull headgear (facemask) is another example. 

Most skeletal issues can result in misalignment in teeth or sometimes in the bite. Habits like thumb sucking can adversely impact growth of upper and lower jaws or disrupt developing straight teeth.

Dental Services at PORTH



After you finish with your orthodontic care and your teeth are straight, you will receive a clear, removable, plastic appliance called a retainer. You will wear these retainers full time in the beginning, and later you may only wear them at night. This ensures your teeth stay in their ideal position, maintaining the perfect smile you worked so hard to achieve.

Everyone should wear a mouthguard while playing contact and non-contact sports to protect their teeth and gums from injury. Mouthguards can provide protection and help avoid costly dental treatment associated with injuries.

Treatments for Sleep Breathing Disorders


Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a disorder characterized by repeated episodes of partial or complete obstruction of the upper airway during sleep, leading to breathing pauses. These pauses in breathing, known as apneas, can lead to reduced oxygen levels in the blood and result in brief awakenings throughout the night, although individuals often do not remember these awakenings. The cycle of disrupted breathing and arousal from sleep can occur multiple times an hour and impairs the ability to achieve deep, restorative sleep, causing excessive daytime sleepiness and fatigue.


Symptoms of OSA may include loud snoring, witnessed pauses in breathing during sleep, tossing and turning, waking up with a dry or sore throat, headaches upon waking, and excessive daytime sleepiness.

Orthodontic Treatment for Sleep Apnea

Specific orthodontic treatments can assist in managing obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Our clinic works in conjunction with various sleep medicine specialists to provide accurate diagnoses of OSA.


Dr. Rooz offers a range of treatment options to aid patients diagnosed with this condition. These treatments include jaw surgery and the use of oral appliances. Additionally, we provide orthodontic care for patients who encounter complications related to their sleep oral appliances.

Orthodontist Treating Airway Disorders

Dental providers and orthodontists with an interest in sleep dental medicine often pursue additional training to provide treatments for sleep-related breathing disorders (SBD).


Dr. Rooz is a dentist qualified by the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine (AADSM), which offers scientific evidence-based treatments for sleep breathing disorders.


Our practice collaborates with a multidisciplinary team of physicians and oral surgeons to deliver specialized care for airway issues.

Sleep Breathing Disorders

Sleep breathing disorders are conditions that involve abnormal and difficult respiration during sleep. They encompass a range of issues, including chronic snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, and central sleep apnea, each affecting the quality of sleep and potentially leading to serious health consequences if untreated due to the impact on the body's oxygen and carbon dioxide balance.


Dr. Rooz works with a specialized team to address pediatric sleep apnea treatments. At PORTH, we provide various treatment options for children with sleep breathing disorders.
