Orthodontics are about more than just straightening your smile for cosmetic reasons. While a beautifully aligned smile can certainly boost your confidence, a straight smile is also a healthy one! When your teeth are properly aligned, it's easier to keep your smile clean, which minimizes your chances of developing bacteria buildup, decay, or gum disease. Orthodontics can make it easier to enjoy your favorite foods, reduce jaw pain, and can even improve your airway for easier breathing and more restful sleep.
Have you been dreaming of a straighter smile, but don't want to deal with the uncomfortable, unsightly metal brackets and wires? Invisalign clear aligner therapy may just be the solution for you! Invisalign aligners are nearly invisible when worn, and are removable so you can continue to enjoy all of your favorite foods and drinks, without restrictions. Over the course of your treatment, you'll receive new aligners every few weeks that will gradually shift your teeth into their proper alignment. Before you know it, you'll have the beautiful smile you deserve.
Properly aligned teeth have more benefits than their aesthetics alone! While a beautifully straight smile will certainly boost your confidence, it will also make taking care of your oral health easier. Crooked teeth can create hard-to-clean areas that allow bacteria to thrive and cause decay. Misaligned teeth also contribute to a higher risk of premature wear, TMJ/TMD, and other conditions. Braces are a reliable, versatile way to improve your bite and straighten your smile. If you're interested in how braces could help you, get in touch with us today to schedule a consultation.

If you are concerned about your child's baby teeth falling out, we can help them get a lifetime of healthy smiles.
Ceramic braces are clear, wire-based appliances that orthodontists use to correct crooked, gapped, or crowded teeth and create an aligned smile. Similar to traditional braces, ceramic braces gradually apply pressure over time to straighten teeth but use clear or colored brackets and wires that match the shade of your own teeth. Due to their translucent appearance, ceramic braces are an attractive alignment option for patients looking for a less noticeable alternative to metal braces.
Pitts brackets make straight, beautiful teeth attainable with a self-ligation technique that reduces time spent wearing braces, while vastly improving comfort. The 3D control of the torque, tip, and rotation decreases the time spent wearing braces since we can better control and predict the outcome. With true 3D management, we can foresee tooth movement and encourage efficient alignment. To encourage better control, Pitts brackets use square wire finishings with 30%-40% lighter forces, helping us design beautiful results that simply can’t be matched by traditional self-ligating techniques. If you are seeking a more comfortable and predictable braces experience, Pitts brackets are a great choice for a stunning smile.
