WELCOME TO JUNCTION ORTHODONTICS
WE WILL GET YOUR SMILE ON THE RIGHT TRACK!
For over 30 years, Junction Orthodontics has been known throughout the community for providing exceptional service and quality orthodontic treatment at a reasonable price. Dr. Scroggins and the staff at Junction Orthodontics have years of experience providing the most advanced, effective, and consistent treatment results. We dedicate ourselves to offering a personalized orthodontic treatment plan for all of our patients in a friendly and caring environment.
Orthodontics is a specialty area of dentistry that focuses not only on straightening teeth, but on establishing a correct bite, harmonizing skeletal and dental relationships, and optimizing facial aesthetics and form. We believe that facial esthetics and balanced beautiful smiles are important elements of each person’s self-esteem. We deliver comprehensive care by working closely with the patient’s general dentist and other specialists such as oral maxillofacial surgeons, periodontists, endodontists, and pediatric dentists.
Valuing our patients’ time, we take pride in staying on schedule so our patients can get back to their busy lives. Every effort is made to make orthodontic treatment financially possible for all who desire optimal oral health and who have an appreciation for the care that we provide.
Only an orthodontist has the training, the experience, and the treatment options to give you your best smile.

Our orthodontists at Junction Orthodontics have many years of experience in delivering the best dental services in MO, ensuring that you have an easy time attaining a perfect smile. We have specialists who can perform numerous procedures including Fitting Braces, Early Treatment, Adult Treatment, Invisalign, Surgical Orthodontics, Retention and Dentofacial Orthopedics.
- Fitting Braces
Feeling insecure about your smile can lead to feeling uneasy about smiling in front of your peers or strangers. In some cases, crooked teeth can make it hard for you to bite or chew some foods, which means that you have to be selective regarding what you eat. Our team at Junction Orthodontics can fit different kinds of braces on your teeth to straighten them or make them stronger.
- Early treatment
We understand that people start developing crooked teeth in their early years due to various reasons. If you have the problem corrected sooner rather than later, you can live a normal life. At an early age, an individual’s bones are still growing, and so they can be molded to easily take a new shape. Although your child might not have a problem with their crooked teeth now, they may encounter typically social problems as they grow up, and correction now will alleviate any such bullying later in life.
- Adult treatment
If you missed out on having your crooked teeth corrected as a child, having the problem corrected when you grow up is essential. In rare circumstances, the crookedness may start developing when you are already an adult. This needs to be addressed if you have had a replacement by means of a denture or bridge. We can perform even the most complex procedures to bring your smile back to life. For instance, some procedures may involve the reshaping of your teeth to ensure they take the right shape. This will ensure that your teeth fit perfectly in your mouth and the jaw.
If for whatever reason you do not want to wear braces, you can have one of our Kirkwood orthodontists design a customized invisalign to straighten your teeth. This strengthens your teeth thus enabling you to chew or bite things you ordinarily could not. This is often a perfect solution if you do not want to have anyone noticing your problems with your teeth. It is therefore often used as an alternative adult treatment for crooked teeth. Since every person has a unique oral cavity, having a customized invisalign ensures that it does not slip off accidentally.
- Surgical orthodontics
For complex cases involving crooked teeth, a patient may require a surgery to be performed to rectify the problem. This may be done to remove excess teeth in your mouth or to adjust the shape of your jaw to make the teeth appear more linear and attractive. In such cases, we will address your situation with the care and attention it deserves to ensure you are satisfied with the final result. At Junction Orthodontics we have years of experience in performing successful surgeries on different people with some very complex cases of crooked oral cavity.
- Dentofacial Orthopedics
At Junction Orthodontics, we have a specialized team to address all issues of malocclusions. This team is dedicated to working with patients to ensure they have properly shaped and placed teeth. This helps to avoid any feelings of discomfort whenever they bite. For younger patients, this team works to ensure they have normal growth on their teeth, thus ensuring such conditions are not experienced.
