Why Is Orthodontics Important?

Orthodontic dentistry corrects alignment irregularities of your teeth and jaw. Whether you are only looking for cosmetic improvements or if your dentist diagnosed you with a bite problem, exploring your options and out-of-pocket costs are important first steps to treatment.

How Do I Know Orthodontic Treatment Is for Me?

Some people want to make cosmetic changes while others are diagnosed with an alignment problem of some kind.  If you have been diagnosed with any of the following, orthodontic treatment corrects it.

  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite
  • Spacing
  • Crowding
  • Misplaced midline

What Are the Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment?

Based on your diagnosis and oral health history, we educate you about the problem, the negative effects the problem may have on your oral health and describe how things should change. It is important that you make informed decisions about your next steps, so we take the time to answer your questions at every stage of the process.

Cosmetically, some of you may just want to love your smile. If you avoid talking or eating in public, improving your smile with orthodontic treatment can change your outlook on life. We have heard many patients tell us that their self-esteem improved with straighter teeth.

A great smile can improve the mood of the giver and the receiver. Orthodontics can bring out the best in your smile!

Health improvements are a big factor with dentists suggesting orthodontic treatment.

Crowded or crossed teeth can deflate daily brushing and flossing efforts. Plaque and tarter get stuck in hard to reach areas creating tooth decay and gum disease problems.

Digestion problems are not always rooted in stomach related issues. Bite problems can make chewing food properly a difficult  task resulting in stomach trouble.

Are Braces Worth It?

We understand that braces are not for everyone, which is why we offer clear aligners from Invisalign® to make treatment more discreet and comfortable than traditional metal wires and bracket wear. No matter which treatment you choose, the long-term effects of an improved smile make the treatment worthwhile.

If you have alignment problems, the price of braces will help you diminish long-term dental costs by resolving the root of the problem in your teeth and jaw. Preventing future dental visits will save you both time and money to make the initial investment for orthodontic treatment more budget friendly.
