A live look at some of the patient benefits associated with a fluid group practice.  Dr. Au-Yeung, our Periodontist, and Dr. Paez, our Prosthodontist, are shown providing highly individualized care to our awesome patient! The benefits of our periodontist and prosthodontist working so closely together, is that they are able to offer our patients with multiple solutions for their specific oral indications and pathology.  Because of Dr. Au-Yeung's and Dr. Paez's unique and specific skill sets, our patients are able to select the treatment plan that is the best fit for them and their lifestyles!

Kokomo Orthodontist | Peru Orthodontist | Ladd Orthodontics | Occlusions

It's National Orthodontic Health Month, and to celebrate I thought I'd show this cool video of Dr. Emerick discussing the different types of occlusions (bites) that patients present with. Orthodontic treatment not only corrects dentin misalignment, but it also allows for the ever important correction of malocclusions as well. As we age, our oral anatomy and teeth slowly migrate towards our midline (center of our body), and gravity pulls things down over time.  Proper orthodontic treatment at a young age can help prevent against the problems caused by this phenomena later on in life.  Most studies suggest orthodontic treatment should start sometime between age 7-14 depending on the patient's maturity and overall indications of their oral cavity.  I highly recommend reaching out to her and the Ladd Orthodontics team to schedule your FREE consultation, and learn what braces or Invisalign can do for you!
