The Centre for Integrative Orthodontics

We don't just straighten teeth, we evaluate and treat facial asymmetries, functional issues like diminished airways and poor breathing, and structural/potentially painful issues of the face, including TMJ issues. We also achieve beautiful smiles with beautifully balanced faces, leading to healthier lives, because of the comprehensive approach we take. Orthodontics shouldn't only straighten your teeth!


 We have free consultations for orthodontics with Dr. Ed Monday through Wednesday at this appointment you will meet Dr. Ed and staff, we will move forward and schedule next appointments as Dr. Ed recommends. 




Our specific qualifications in the design, application and control of corrective appliances will bring teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment for optimal facial balanace



  • Fixed orthodontics: Braces, frequently, Damon Braces that allow us to use light forces to remodel bone and make corrections not achievable using traditional orthodontic techniques.
  • Dentofacial orthopedics: This procedure uses dental appliances to change and balance skeletal structures of the face, correcting deficiencies and asymmetries. This can also be used to improve "functional spaces" like small, insufficient airways.
  • Myobrace: This is a removable dental appliance, that can even be used at very early ages, to correct functional problems and growth imbalances in the face. It can create adequate space for teeth in some cases, along with creating a more normally growing face. Click here to read more on Myobrace®.
  • TMJ orthotics: This allows us to treat jaw joint issues that are a primary structural issues, frequently leading to pain, asymmetric facial form, and are often associated with disturbed sleep and breathing disorders
