About Orthodontic Treatment


Why You Should See An Orthodontist

Your smile is one of your most valuable assets. It's often the first thing people notice about you. A beautiful smile contributes to your self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-image. These are important qualities at any age.

Straight teeth also help us bite, speak, and chew efficiently. Straight teeth and properly aligned jaws contribute to healthy teeth and gums and may alleviate or prevent physical health problems.

If left untreated, many orthodontic problems become worse and can require additional dental care later in life. They can cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing or misalignment of the jaw joint. Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain, which may lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and eventual tooth loss.

The good news is that orthodontic treatment can correct these problems and help you achieve a healthy beautiful smile that lasts a lifetime.
