Who Needs Orthodontic Treatment?

The primary goal of orthodontic dentistry is to correct teeth and jaws that are positioned incorrectly. Far from being simply a cosmetic issue, misaligned teeth are more difficult to clean, and therefore, are more prone to developing periodontal disease, and eventually, falling out. This is why the benefit to proper orthodontic treatment is not just a more beautiful smile, but an overall improvement in oral health. So if you’re experiencing any issues with proper cleaning, discomfort when you eat, or the like, contact us for an orthodontic consultation.

Did you know that teens are 2x more likely to have a boost in self-esteem wearing Invisalign clear aligners than with metal braces?

With Invisalign, there are no brackets or wires to get in the way of playing sports or musical instruments. And the aligners are removable so your teen can eat her favorite foods and brush and floss normally. Invisalign clear aligners can be just as effective as metal braces. The patented technology can effectively treat the most common and complex teeth-straightening concerns. The result? A straight shot to a great smile.

Myofunctional Therapy with MyoBrace®

A vast majority of today’s children have crooked teeth, but what if you could train your child to have a straighter smile, prevent crowded teeth, improve their jaw development, breathing, and even sleep?

Modern research has shown that crooked teeth are not genetic, rather a result of bad oral habits such as mouth breathing as well as incorrect tongue and swallowing habits, which begin in early childhood and prevent proper jaw development.

Myobrace® treatment works by addressing the underlying causes affecting dental and facial development by teaching children to correct their bad oral habits. Treatment involves wearing a series of removable appliances that are worn for 1-2 hours each day and overnight while sleeping. Daily use of the appliance is combined with a selection of breathing and mouth exercises known as the Myobrace® Activities, which assist in stretching and strengthening the tongue, lips, and cheek muscles. By starting early and allowing the jaws to grow as nature intended, the teeth are able to come in straight well before braces would typically be required.
