While orthodontics can be considered mostly cosmetic, it is important to fix problems for a healthy mouth. Teeth that are crooked or do not line up are the perfect place for food and bacteria to hide. They can also be hard to clean, leading to cavities and other problems down the line.

The goal in treating problem teeth is to ensure a healthy mouth in the future. It is important to close any gaps between teeth and to make sure the teeth all line up correctly. Sometimes teeth are crooked and need to be straightened. Orthodontics can also improve eating and even a client’s speech in some cases.

Clear aligners

Clear aligners are the newest and increasingly popular choice for aligning teeth. The aligners are invisible and removable, making them a top choice for teenagers and adults. The system uses clear, acrylic trays that straighten teeth just like braces and are much more comfortable.

Clear aligners are nice because you can remove them to eat, drink, brush, and floss your teeth as normal.

Clear aligners need to be worn as much as possible and need to be cleaned and adjusted regularly for optimal results.
