Orthodontics is much more than straightening teeth for improving a smile’s aesthetics. It resolves bad bites (malocclusions) or jaw misalignments that affect the way we also chew, clean our teeth, and feel about our smiles. Crooked teeth do more than ruin the look of your smile:

  • They are difficult to clean, increasing the chances of tooth decay and/or gum disease.
  • Protruding teeth are more prone to chipping.
  • Cross bites can lead to unfavorable growth and uneven tooth wear.
  • Open bites can result in tongue-thrusting habits and ultimately speech impediments.
  • Straight Teeth are Healthier Teeth
  • Overall, orthodontics makes prettier smiles and healthier people:
  • They make room for crowded, erupting teeth
  • They create facial symmetry
  • They reduce the eventual stigma of protruding front teeth


Orthodontics can be performed at any age but the earlier the treatment, the better. Most dentists prefer to assess when a child will need braces by the age of seven. That’s when the first adult molars erupt and establish back bite. We can screen for overbites, underbites, open bites, or crowded teeth. Time is of the essence in getting you or your child on the way to an enhanced smile. Although it’s suggested to start orthodontics very young, it’s effective on adolescents and adults, too. It’s never too late to improve your mouth’s look. And studies show that orthodontic treatments are easier for adults because they are more compliant with caring for their braces.

Braces: One Smile, Many Choices

Orthodontics has come a long way with braces and retainers. The choice is not just limited to cumbersome, silver devices that look almost torturous. There are also ceramic braces and Invisalign, which is a clear overlay template that’s hardly detectable—very popular with adult patients.

If it’s determined that you or your child needs braces, let’s work together as a team to determine which corrective device is best. We can’t wait to get you on your way to a straighter and healthier smile!
