Will I have a mouthful of metal? Don’t worry, we’ve come a long way since then! It’s true some cases are best treated with brackets and wires, but brackets can be porcelain – and for patients who don’t want any brackets or wires at all, we can accommodate with a completely different solution that uses no brackets or wires at all. No more mouth full of braces.
Modern day orthodontics doesn’t involve time-consuming dental visits, 10 pounds of metal in your mouth, headgear and other unattractive devices. We can offer orthodontic solutions that are effective, fast and far less visible than the old style of traditional braces.
A smile with beautiful straight teeth is pleasing to the eye. But it’s much more than that. Straight teeth improve your bite and can avoid a host of problems. Misaligned teeth can cause bite problems leading to jaw pain, headaches and sleep problems.
Early detection and treatment can avoid or minimize many orthodontic concerns before they become a problem. The American Dental Association recommends an orthodontic exam by the age of seven, or earlier if problem is detected by the parents.
