From young children to adults, we provide orthodontic treatment and procedures necessary for maintaining excellent oral health.
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth that are crowded, protruding, or too far apart. It is recommended orthodontic screening take place by the age of seven so that we may evaluate the development of your child’s teeth and mouth to ensure your child’s oral development is as healthy as possible. But getting your teeth straightened isn’t just for teenagers anymore. Adults everywhere are taking advantage of the opportunity to receive orthodontic care, and now you can too.
To place braces, a bracket is secured to your tooth and threaded with a wire that, over time, will straighten your teeth into a comfortable, healthy bite.
If you’re a good candidate, you may be able to use clear aligners that contain no metal and are virtually invisible.
If you choose not to straighten your teeth, you increase your risk for tooth decay, excessive tooth wear, periodontal disease, headaches, sore neck and shoulder muscles, and painful problems with your jaw joints.
We’ll discuss your options and recommend what’s best for you. We want to help you get a healthy, beautiful smile that you’ll love to show off.
