Orthodontics for All Ages

Posted .

Did you know that orthodontics is good for people of all ages? While it is preferable to straighten teeth when you are younger, you can actually align your smile at any age. With orthodontics, you can move your teeth into proper alignment for a healthier and more appealing smile, and even speak more clearly and chew and eat more easily once the teeth are shifted into proper alignment.

Whether you have a misaligned smile, crowding of the teeth or teeth with too much spacing, orthodontics can help. Did you know that straightened teeth are easier to clean? Well, it’s true! This makes orthodontics healthier for your smile as straight teeth are at a lower risk of gum disease and tooth decay.

With orthodontics, we can help you correct any irregularities in the mouth, including your teeth and your jaw as your teeth are straightened and your bite is aligned to function properly. In fact, straightened teeth are also good for the jaw joints and the gums as your biting pressure is spread out more evenly over all of your pearly whites.

So what can you expect when you come in for an orthodontic evaluation? Our dentist will evaluate your smile to help you create an orthodontic treatment that best suits your needs, lifestyle, and budget. Then you can begin your treatment plan with confidence.
