Braces

Having crooked teeth can make you feel self-conscious about your smile and cause oral health issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. Braces are a proven method of straightening misaligned teeth and making your oral health easier to maintain.

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, you should have your first orthodontic consultation by age seven. However, it is never too late for adults to consider braces, especially with so many discreet options available. In general, you should see a dentist if you have issues such as an overbite, underbite, crossbite, open bite, gapped teeth, or crowded teeth. 

Many patients have heard about the wonders of Invisalign’s clear aligner system. While Invisalign is a viable option for some, it may not be the best choice to treat more complex cases. However, for patients concerned about metal braces, there are still a variety of aesthetic options available, including clear braces and tooth-colored ceramic brackets.

Why braces?

Boosted Self-Esteem: 

Achieving a straight, symmetrical smile with braces encourages a more positive self-image and greater confidence.

Versatile Treatment:

Treatment with braces is easily customizable to a variety of issues, from slightly crooked teeth to severe misalignment.

A Balanced Bite: When your teeth are misaligned, it can result in tooth wear, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, and other issues. Braces can restore comfort and benefit your long-term oral health.
