Have you been wanting a straighter smile for awhile now, but keep putting it off? Orthodontics have become more popular than ever, and it’s not just for straighter teeth. In fact, if you have a misaligned bite that is affecting your speech or chewing habits, you may enjoy the benefits of an aligned smile that will correct your malocclusion.

This is not just for appearance sake, but for functionality and even your overall oral health. A crowded or crooked bite can bring on gum disease, tooth decay and even tooth loss, erosion of your enamel from uneven wear, and jaw problems.

Orthodontics can treat your bite successfully no matter the cause of the misalignment. Sometimes it’s habits like thumbsucking in your youth, losing teeth and leaving gaps, injury, or even the because of your family tree. And you would be in good company. In addition to children and teens, more and more adults are seeking help.

Whether you are considering wearing removable aligners that straighten your smile discreetly, or wearing traditional braces with wires and brackets, depending on the severity of your misalignment, there’s a proven treatment option to suit your needs and budget. Treatment time can take 1-3 years, depending on your needs and the treatment used. Once the treatment has been successfully completed, wearing a retainer can help you keep the healthy smile you worked hard to achieve.
