Considering At-Home Treatments?

Orthodontic treatment is not a quick fix. Working with the right orthodontist to determine a treatment plan can yield life-enhancing results.

Why Orthodontics?

Oral health is a window into your overall health. Orthodontic treatment from the best orthodontists in the U.S. helps ensure proper function of teeth and create healthy smiles. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak. Teeth that are misaligned are harder to clean and can cause abnormal wearing of tooth enamel which can lead to extensive and expensive dental procedures.

Common Problems

There are a handful of common tooth, mouth and jaw problems that require orthodontic care. Some of the most common problems include jaw pain, crooked teeth, underbite, overbite, mouth breathing or speech difficulty. We recommend seeking care the moment you or your child starts to experience these or other dental problems.

How to Choose The Right Orthodontist

There are a lot of treatment options available, from clear aligners to modern braces. They each have their uses, but only an orthodontist has the specialized knowledge to identify and plan for all the variables involved. Just as each smile is unique, so is the treatment option. It’s important to choose the right orthodontist who has the knowledge and full range of tools to create a customized treatment plan to address your orthodontic needs.
