Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry focused on correcting irregularities of the teeth and jaw, especially in how they align and fit together. There are several orthodontic treatment options available, and our team will make certain that you receive the one that is right for your personal needs. Through orthodontics, we can correct teeth that are:
Our teeth are made to function in a certain way. If teeth do not come together the way they are supposed to, they have a higher chance of wearing out and breaking down. This is something that is not very evident when we are young but becomes more apparent as we age. The longevity of teeth is greatly enhanced when they bite together correctly.
What Can Braces Do for Me?
People often think that the only reason that someone would get braces is for the cosmetic benefit. The truth is, cosmetic improvement is only one of three major benefits provided by having braces.
First of all, our teeth are made to function in a certain way. If teeth do not come together the way they are supposed to, they have a higher chance of wearing out and breaking down. This is something that is not very evident when we are young, but becomes more apparent as we age. Some folks have had headaches for years and have not been able to find the reason why. The answer may be as simple as straightening teeth so that they bite together correctly. The longevity of teeth is greatly enhanced when they bite together correctly.
The second reason to have teeth straightened is for the ease of keeping them clean. Straight teeth are easier to keep clean. Crooked teeth are difficult to keep clean. Teeth that are difficult to keep clean are liable to get more cavities. Teeth with cavities are expensive to repair. Repairing teeth with cavities means more time in the dental chair. Look, I am no fool (some would debate that), I know that most patients (not all; there are a few weirdos out there) do not like getting their teeth repaired. Most patients would prefer to see the hygienist for cleanings and only see the dentist for check-ups. Straight teeth = clean teeth = less time, money and energy spent at the dental office.
Cosmetics, the “wow factor” of braces. Think about it, your teeth will be involved in every conversation, every meal, every laugh, every smile, every first impression, every interview … for the rest of your life. Having a beautiful smile increases confidence. Confidence is a huge part of success. An investment in braces for a short time will pay rewards for the rest of your life.

Clear Aligners vs. Traditional Braces
At our office, we are proud to offer clear aligner treatment. This orthodontic option consists of a series of custom trays that gently move your teeth into their optimal positions. Here are just some of the benefits of clear aligners over traditional braces:
- You can take your aligners out to eat and clean your teeth.
- Aligners are much less noticeable than braces, so you do not have to worry about having a mouthful of metal.
- You will need to come into our office less often than with braces.
- Aligners are generally faster and more comfortable.
