Crooked teeth are harder to keep clean even with good at-home care, resulting in an increased risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and eventual tooth loss.
These issues can also place additional stress on the chewing muscles and jaw joints, causing headaches, TMJ disorders, and pain in the face, neck or jaw. Patients of all ages and stages of care can benefit from orthodontic treatment.

Traditional braces may be recommended patients of all ages with a variety of orthodontic issues. Braces consist of metal or ceramic brackets that are cemented to the surface of your teeth. Once placed, the brackets are used to anchor an archwire. The wire is gradually adjusted so that the teeth can be repositioned over one to two years.
Do you want a straighter smile without the need for braces? Invisalign may be the answer for you. This invisible aligner system uses a series of custom-made aligner trays to guide your teeth. Wearing the aligners for 20 to 22 hours each day will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place over one to two years, or as recommended by our dentist. Invisalign is recommended for adults and teens with mild to moderate orthodontic issues.
Once you have completed braces or Invisalign treatment, we will prescribe a retainer to maintain your teeth’s desired alignment. Your retainer will be made to your unique needs and must be worn as prescribed by our dentist for the best results.
