Do Straight Teeth Matter?

Straight teeth are seen by patients as one of the most important parts of a beautiful smile. But did you know that properly aligned teeth also provide an overall health benefit as well? Malocclusions, caused by spacing, crowding, crossbite, overbite, and open bite, can make it difficult to properly brush and floss, leaving trapped plaque and tartar buildup to form gum disease-causing bacteria. When teeth are straightened with orthodontics, and an oral hygiene routine is followed, the chances of decay or disease developing are greatly reduced. Similarly, an aligned bite improves what foods can be comfortably and thoroughly chewed, improving digestion and nutrition as well. Our on-staff orthodontist welcomes pediatric and adult patients for an orthodontics consultation and provides personalized, effective treatment with Invisalign®, ClearCorrect, or traditional braces.

The Life-Long Benefits of Straight Teeth

  • Feel confident in the appearance of your smile
  • Brush and floss aligned teeth thoroughly
  • Eat and chew foods with ease and comfort
  • Keep disease or decay from developing
  • Reduce the risk for joint-related pain

Our Orthodontics Treatments

  • ClearCorrect® uses a series of transparent aligners replaced every two weeks to straighten teeth. A discreet, removable option for professionals and teens, ClearCorrect® does not hinder social life, what you can eat, or your normal oral hygiene routine.
  • Traditional bracket-and-wire orthodontics are designed to correct a variety of simple to complex malocclusions of the teeth. The most versatile and long-standing, traditional braces are ideal for straightening badly misaligned teeth.
  • Clear braces use a series of custom-made clear aligners to gradually straighten teeth. Removable aligners make it easy to maintain oral hygiene and do not restrict what foods can be eaten. Virtually invisible, clear braces are ideal for busy professionals and teens.

Better Teeth, Better Health

We promote orthodontics as a means to improving overall health. Especially in children, alignment of the jaws and occlusion the of teeth play a significant role in the health and development of the smile and for adults, it can improve oral health and overall emotional wellness. Children with behavioral issues or habits, including thumb sucking and mouth breathing, run the risk of jaw maldevelopment and misalignment of the teeth. Similarly, if issues are related to breathing and sleep, emotional growth and development can be hindered. By taking our unique whole-body approach, we address all conditions and habits that may harm a child’s physical and mental development, as they relate to their overall health and the health of their jaws and teeth. Our integrated dental-medical team works together to diagnose and treat these conditions early, before any long-term damage occurs with both their dental health and overall wellbeing. If your child is struggling with habits like thumb sucking or mouth breathing, we invite you to schedule a pediatric orthodontics appointment with our team.
