Dental experts estimate that almost 70 percent of the population could benefit from braces to correct crooked, overlapped, crowded, or misaligned teeth. Misaligned teeth can trigger tooth enamel to erode faster, which can lead to tooth damage. Investing in braces for yourself or your child is an investment in oral health and personal image. We offer traditional metal braces or Invisalign aligners.
For teens and grownups, the most common reason for orthodontics is appearance – but not for children. More than half of all children have problems with their teeth or jaws, including front teeth that stick out because of thumb sucking, teeth that don’t come out properly, spaces, poorly aligned bites, and crowded or missing teeth. The key is early orthodontic care.
Still people over the age of 18 now make up more than 40 percent of our orthodontic patients. Modern braces can be a great way to improve your smile and make your teeth last longer. In addition to traditional braces, we offer Invisalign, a series of clear, removable aligners that gradually straighten teeth. Please give us a call if you have any questions about orthodontics.
For patients who dislike the look and feel of metal braces, Invisalign offers an excellent alternative. Invisalign aligners are made of strong, clear plastic and are virtually invisible. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign aligners have no metal bands or wires to irritate your mouth. Invisalign is practically invisible.
