What are Orthodontics?

Orthodontic treatment is designed to improve the look and alignment of your smile. Whether you or your loved one has crowded, crooked, spaced or misaligned teeth, we can offer orthodontic care that is specific to their needs. Orthodontic treatment is individual to the person who is having it done. We offer Invisalign as well as other treatment options to make it easier than ever to achieve the smile you’ve always wanted.

Why might Orthodontics be needed?

Not only is a crooked and crowded smile unsightly, but it can be detrimental to the health of your teeth as well. It can be difficult or even impossible to brush and floss around crowded teeth. This increases the likelihood that you’ll develop tooth decay as well as gingivitis and gum disease as a result of improper oral hygiene. There is no age limit when it comes to proper orthodontic care, and many adults are beginning to see the benefits of treatment.

Who is a candidate for Orthodontic treatment?

Most patients who have less-than-perfectly aligned teeth can benefit from orthodontic treatment. We will examine your teeth to determine if orthodontics are right for you. In fact, many adult patients are beginning to come to us for orthodontic treatment or retreatment as a result of not maintaining their results from when they were a teenager. If you’re ready to enhance your smile, it’s time for you to consider the benefits of orthodontic treatment.

What happens during Orthodontic treatment?

Orthodontic treatment begins with a thorough consultation. We want to get to know you and your unique smile. From there, we take x-rays as well as impressions and use these impressions to create unique clear aligners that you’ll wear. We offer many other different appliances that are specific to orthodontic patients, so these may be fitted prior to or after having clear aligners made. You should make it a habit to keep up with any and all of your orthodontic appointments. Consistent orthodontic care ensures that you’re able to straighten your smile quickly and efficiently without delays.
