Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are improperly positioned to create a healthier mouth and more pleasing appearance. What a difference straight teeth can make!
Orthodontic treatment can boost your self-confidence and positively impact social and professional opportunities — and you’re never too old to take advantage of it. Properly aligned teeth help you to bite, chew and even speak more effectively. Straight teeth are also easier to clean, which helps prevent decay and gum disease.
Harnessing the body’s natural ability to remodel its own tissue, orthodontics and applies light, constant force to gently reshape bone and move teeth into better positions. Fixed orthodontic appliances range from traditional metal braces to more inconspicuous clear or tooth-colored braces.
