During National Orthodontic Health Month orthodontists and other dental professionals raise awareness in an effort to promote dental health, especially orthodontic health! If you’re not sure what orthodontic treatment is or whether or not you or a family member needs orthodontic treatment, we are always here to walk you through the consultation process and help you figure out what’s best for you! We pride ourselves on making sure our patients understand every detail of the orthodontic treatment process, and always welcome your questions.
Please don’t hesitate to call with questions or concerns regarding your orthodontic health; that’s what we’re here for!

September is Self Improvement Month and what better way to improve yourself than to improve your smile? Aesthetics is not the only benefit of orthodontic treatment; in fact, there are many other benefits!
Properly aligned teeth help your overall health and wellness:
- *Straight teeth are easier to clean and easier to floss
- *Crowded/crooked teeth are more susceptible to cavities, tartar, and plaque
- *Crowded teeth and crooked teeth increase your risk of accumulating bacteria, which can cause gum disease and tooth loss
- *Bacteria found in gum disease can also increase your risk of stroke, heart disease, and other systemic problems
- *Teeth that aren’t aligned properly cause improper chewing and biting, thus wearing your teeth down at a faster rate
- *Improper bite can also cause migraines, headaches, and temporo-mandibular joint disorders (TMD)
Orthodontics improves not just your smile and self-confidence, but your overall health and longevity as well!!
