Are you a candidate for orthodontic treatment?

    Orthodontic treatment is not only used for improving aesthetics or changing how you feel about your smile. It deals with irregularities of the teeth and jaws, especially alignment and occlusion. Orthodontia is used to correct malocclusions. Malocclusions, also known as bad bites, occur as a result of tooth or jaw misalignment. Malocclusions affect the way you smile, chew your food, and clean your teeth.

The Staff

The team members of Red and Ritchey Orthodontics consist of a caring, professional, and fun group of well-trained orthodontic assistants.

Why should YOU consider orthodontic treatment?

If you are trying to decide whether orthodontic treatments are right for you, then the best thing that you can do is schedule a consultation with our team. At Red and Ritchey Orthodontics, we will gladly cater your treatment to match your needs.

Here are a few reasons why you should make it a priority to schedule an orthodontics exam:

  • Build Confidence with a Beautiful Smile:

    The quality of your smile has a direct impact on your self-confidence. Improving the appearance of your teeth can help you feel more comfortable when you are talking to other people. This confidence will improve your quality of life and give you the freedom to smile any time without holding back.

  • Protect Your Dental Health

    Straightening your teeth can make it easier to care for your dental health. When the teeth are properly aligned, you will find it easier to floss and brush all surfaces of the teeth to prevent dental problems in the future.

  • Avoid Long Term Dental Issues:

    Untreated orthodontic problems can lead to bigger health issues in the future. If you procrastinate your orthodontic treatments, then you could be facing bigger dental costs later on.

Our Treatments

Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. Beginning treatment at this time ensures the greatest result and the least amount of time and expense. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7.
