Dr. James Gleason, Orthodontics

Dr. Gleason is an orthodontic specialist who believes in working to make positive changes in the lives of his patients. His focus is dedicated solely to orthodontics, customizing treatment and caring for your child’s needs.

Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain, resulting in tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Evaluating children for orthodontic needs is based on individual needs. Some children need early care, others will be started once all the deciduous teeth have been lost. Full orthodontic braces are usually started between 5th and 8th grade, depending on the individual child. By placing a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, braces slowly move teeth to a corrected position. The patients diligent use of any prescribed elastics or orthodontic appliance is an important factor in achieving the most efficient treatment.
