We understand how important a straight, beautiful smile is, and are delighted to offer state-of-the-art braces and appliances, and revolutionary services for children and adults.
Are you a candidate for orthodontic treatment?
Orthodontics is not merely for improving the aesthetics of the smile; orthodontic treatment improves bad bites (malocclusions). Malocclusions occur as a result of tooth or jaw misalignment. Malocclusions affect the way you smile, chew, clean your teeth or feel about your smile.
Why should malocclusions be treated?
According to studies by the American Association of Orthodontists, untreated malocclusions can result in a variety of problems. Crowded teeth are more difficult to properly brush and floss, which may contribute to tooth decay and/or gum disease. Protruding teeth are more susceptible to accidental chipping. Crossbites can result in unfavorable growth and uneven tooth wear. Openbites can result in tongue-thrusting habits and speech impediments. Ultimately, orthodontics does more than make a pretty smile – it creates a healthier you.
Good news! The new techniques and appliances we use greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces or transparent aligners that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.
Want to straighten your teeth, but don’t want to wear traditional braces? The Invisalign system may be a perfect treatment option for you. Invisalign straightens teeth using a series of clear, virtually invisible plastic aligners. The aligners are comfortable, removable and precisely customized for your bite. Best of all, no one will know you’re having orthodontic treatment unless you tell them!
