What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one's appearance.
The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime
Type of Braces
Today's orthodontics offer more kinds of braces than ever before. Check out your options:
Metal braces/Traditional braces
These are the metal brackets and wires that most people picture when they hear the word "braces."
Ceramic braces are the same size and shape as metal braces, except that they have tooth-colored or clear brackets that blend in to teeth.
Invisalign consists of a series of 18 to 30 custom-made, mouth guard-like clear plastic aligners. The aligners are removable and are replaced every 2 weeks
Is a conservative Short Term Ortho (STO) System. It is a unique cosmetic option for adult patients who don't want comprehensive orthodontic treatment - either because of the length of treatment time (2+ years) or the appearance of metal braces. This is a life-changing service for people who previously had no hope and no realistic options for improving their smiles
