Orthodontic treatment can help improve the aesthetics of your smile while supporting a stable, comfortable and functional bite. Orthodontic treatments can straighten crooked teeth and bring a bite into proper alignment. At Izadi Orthodontics we also treat musculoskeletal concerns, tongue-tie, and offer laser gum contouring as part of our comprehensive approach to oral health.
A Board Certified orthodontist, Dr. Mohammad Izadi focuses on addressing the functional development of the musculoskeletal system, minimizing the risk of orthodontic relapse. We follow up with patients up to a year post treatment in order to help manage and maintain a stable outcome.
Our Timonium, MD orthodontist office is equipped with the latest in modern digital technology, providing a higher level of accuracy and less invasive orthodontic treatments. We use state of the art digital imaging and scanning technology to analyze the alignment and function of the bite for both diagnosis and treatment planning purposes.
Orthodontic treatments address dental concerns that require shifting of the teeth or movement of the jaw bone in order to achieve a healthy, stable smile.
- Crooked teeth– Crooked teeth are the most common reason patients seek orthodontic treatment. Braces, clear aligners, and retainers can be used to straighten teeth for a more aesthetic smile. Straightening crooked teeth can also improve a patient’s oral health, reducing their risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and painful jaw symptoms.
- Malocclusion- Over, under and open bites occur when the jaw does not properly align. Malocclusion can be corrected using orthodontic appliances, self-litigating braces, or ceramic braces. Treatment will vary depending on the degree of malocclusion and the personal goals and concerns of the patient.
- Gap Teeth- Gaps between the teeth can cause aesthetic concerns, but may also cause malocclusion or discomfort in the bite or jaw. Gap teeth can be closed using a range of orthodontic treatments depending on the size and location of the gaps.
- Malformed jaw or bite- Some children are born with a smaller or misaligned jaw. As the child develops, it becomes evident that the bite is too small, large or misaligned. Treating a malformed jaw early on in life can help prevent difficulty eating and in speech development.

Two-Phased Orthodontic Treatment for Children
Izadi Orthodontics offers phased treatment plans for children with orthodontic concerns. The phased treatment plan uses early analysis of the child’s oral growth trajectory to provide proactive orthodontic care. Children who receive phase 1 orthodontic treatments can often avoid the need for oral surgery or braces later in life.
We encourage parents to bring their child in for an orthodontic analysis by the age of seven. As your child’s jaw and teeth develop, Izadi Orthodontics can track their progress, determining if further treatment will be required. Treating malocclusion or a malformed jaw during development allows for more conservative treatment options.
