Get Your Teeth in Line With Orthodontic Care

Orthodontic care can and should have a positive impact on your overall health. When your teeth are straight, you can brush and floss more effectively. This means you can remove more harmful bacteria, plaque, and food particles, so you are less likely to develop cavities and gum disease. When your bite is positioned properly, you reduce wear and tear on your teeth, too. And don’t underestimate the value of a great smile on your emotional well-being. When you like your smile, you feel more confident, too.

At our office, orthodontic treatments are about more than just straight teeth – although that is a fun and rewarding part of this service. Our bigger goal is to improve your overall health. Depending on your age and your needs, you may benefit from any of these options:

  • Traditional Braces – Many people think of metal braces when they think of orthodontic care. This system of brackets and wires has proven to be effective for a wide variety of problems.
  • Preventive Orthodontics – This is also referred to as orthotropics. This treatment encourages the proper growth and development of children’s facial bones, which can allow teeth to erupt correctly and reduce the risk of sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. It creates a more attractive facial profile and even helps eliminate the need for orthodontics in the future.
  • Invisalign – Clear aligners have proven to be an effective alternative for both teens and adults. Many people appreciate how discreet this treatment is.
  • Six Month Smiles – This short-term orthodontics option uses tooth-colored brackets and wires. This service is focused on moving the teeth at the front of your mouth, which allows you to see cosmetic benefits in less time.

You airway health affects everything from cognition to your gut health.

Common Questions About Orthodontics

How effective are orthodontics?

Our orthodontic options are very effective for correcting a wide variety of orthodontic issues. We offer Invisalign and Six Month Smiles, either of which can straighten your teeth faster than traditional braces. Both methods will give you a straight and beautiful smile in months rather than two years or longer like braces take. We also offer traditional braces, for smiles that require that approach, and preventive orthodontics to help your child avoid the need for braces later on in life.

How much does orthodontics cost?

Each patient who comes to us for orthodontics is different. There are no two sets of teeth exactly alike. Until we’ve had a chance to examine your mouth and take X-rays, there is no way to give you a price on your orthodontic treatment. Once we have more information, we can give you an accurate estimate for your orthodontics.

Are orthodontics worth it?

Our patients think so! We’ve treated many patients who have been unhappy with their smiles for years because of gaps, crooked teeth, and other orthodontic issues. Orthodontic treatment not only improves the appearance of your smile, it often improves its function too by moving teeth into proper alignment. Misaligned teeth can contribute to health problems such as TMJ disorders.
