Orthodontics is the dental specialty that focuses on correcting problems in the alignment of the teeth and jaws, including misaligned teeth, crowded teeth, gapped and spaced teeth, overbites, underbites, open bites and crossbites. While many people consider orthodontic treatment to be primarily cosmetic, it is highly beneficial to your oral health and function. Teeth that are properly aligned are easier to keep clean with regular brushing and flossing, greatly lowering your risk of developing problems such as gum disease and tooth decay. Orthodontics also improves your ability to chew, eat and speak correctly, improving your overall quality of life.
There are many orthodontic treatments available, ranging from traditional metal braces to more discreet options such as clear aligner therapy. When you visit our office, our dentists and team will examine your mouth and discuss your treatment options with you in order to create an individualized plan that meets your needs and will help you improve your oral health and smile. Thanks to advances in treatment techniques and technologies, orthodontic care is now faster, more comfortable and more reliable than ever before!
