Given the choice, most people would prefer a beautiful smile with perfectly aligned teeth over a smile that showed crooked or crowded teeth that diminishes their self-esteem. That’s because most of us know that in our society, an appealing smile is held in high esteem. In addition, straight teeth and aligned jaws are easier to brush and floss, lowering the incidence of cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss. Could orthodontics – the art of placing gentle pressure on teeth to move them into proper alignment – help you smile more?
The type and duration of treatment varies according to each patient’s condition. We’ll examine and assess your teeth, and discuss a treatment plan that’s best for you. Options include the “traditional” braces you’re probably most familiar with: bands, wires, elastics, and removable appliances. A more recently available option is invisible braces – a series of clear, removable aligners called Invisalign.
