Braces and orthodontic care is about more than just cosmetics and a straight smile. Improper alignment can cause jaw pain and chewing dysfunction. Overcrowded teeth can be more susceptible to decay and the surrounding gums are more likely to develop periodontal disease.

Braces and Orthodontic Care

Gone are the days of bulky braces. Choose from thin, clear brackets or skip them altogether and straighten your smile with invisible aligners. Both options provide a constant, gentle force in a carefully controlled direction, slowly moving teeth to the proper position.

Because, everyone ought to have a mouth that works for them, not against them.
