Braces or Orthodontics – we offer great ways to straighten your smile.
If your teeth are crowded, spaced or improperly aligned, braces can work wonders. Straight teeth not only look better, they’re also healthier, easier to keep clean, and an improved bite helps avoid jaw pain. Our highly trained orthodontists are experts at moving teeth gently and safely for children, teens and adults. What’s more, if you see an orthodontist early on, it may be possible to avoid or shorten the time needed for straightening later. We recommend that parents bring their children in for an ortho evaluation between the ages of seven and eight.
Braces apply mild, constant pressure, moving your teeth over time. Adjustments to your braces are made each month until your teeth are perfectly aligned. Braces can be metal, clear or tooth-colored. Braces can come in a variety of colors, which can be changed to suit your fashion needs.
More and more adults and teens are choosing clear aligners that are nearly invisible. These custom-made trays are molded to the shape of your teeth, and they are removable for eating and brushing your teeth. The trays gently apply pressure, and they are replaced about every two weeks with new trays that continue the alignment process. Your orthodontist specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of teeth that need to be straightened. He or she can help you decide which braces or aligners will be right for you. You’ll soon by on your way to a beautiful new smile. For more information about braces or orthodontics, click here.

Orthodontics deals with the study and treatment of malocclusions (improper bites), which may be a result of tooth irregularity and/or disproportionate jaw relationships. The most common orthodontic problems are protruding upper teeth, overbite, open bite, and irregular spacing. Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or can deal with the control and modification of facial growth. In the latter case it is better defined as “dentofacial orthopedics”.
Orthodontists are highly trained dentists who specialize in the diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of these dental and facial irregularities. These problems can be inherited or acquired, and it is best when they are detected early. Quite often, the corrective action applied by an Orthodontist is the use of braces and by designing corrective appliances. The goal of these treatments is to realign the teeth and jaws, restore facial balance, and prevent further health problems. Because crowded and misaligned teeth are difficult to keep clean, orthodontic treatment is necessary to maintain good oral health.
