One of the first things people notice when they meet other people is their smile. Because a nice smile is such a welcome social gesture, it would be a shame not to show a nice smile because of orthodontic problems. Unfortunately, many people are reluctant to reveal their smiles because they are embarrassed by their crooked, crowded, or rotated teeth. Others may stifle their smiles due to such malocclusions (“bad bites”) as crossbites or overjet. Overjet is often referred to as “overbite”, but they are different, orthodontically speaking. Overjet is how far the upper teeth stick out from the lower teeth. Overbite is how much the upper teeth come down over the lower teeth.
The good news is that these issues and others, can be corrected with orthodontic treatment at any age. As a result, patients may experience a boost in confidence and self-esteem that translates into the improved social interaction that comes with a beautiful smile.
Our entire staff provides friendly and personalized attention to each patient. And, every effort is made to meet your needs in a caring, timely fashion. Let your smile be your ambassador.
Aside from bringing aesthetic improvement, orthodontic treatment brings functional improvement that helps avert abnormal tooth wear, misalignment of the jaw, and chewing and speech problems. Also, your teeth can be cleaned better if they are in proper alignment. This would reduce the risk for periodontal disease, gingivitis, and other issues.
