Orthodontic misalignment not only affects your appearance and confidence, but it also has a negative impact on oral health and function.
Straight teeth support proper function and are easier to clean. Orthodontics can optimize your bite and move your teeth into alignment.

Am I a Good Candidate for Orthodontics?
You Can Commit to Treatment
For clear aligners to be effective, patients must be committed to wearing the trays for a minimum of 20 to 22 hours per day. To ensure compliance, it is recommended that you only remove the trays to eat and maintain oral hygiene.
Mild to Moderate Alignment Issues
Continuing advances in dental technology allow more patients to qualify for clear aligner orthodontics, but severe cases such as rotated teeth, large gaps, and severe malocclusion may require traditional orthodontic options such as braces.
Clear aligner treatment can address a number of orthodontic conditions.
Common Orthodontic Issues
If the upper jaw is too large, or if the lower jaw is too small, it can cause a deep bite, also known as an overbite. This condition is characterized by front teeth that overlap the lowers.
Often caused by an underdeveloped upper jaw or an overdeveloped lower jaw, an underbite causes the lower teeth to jut out in front of the upper teeth.
A crossbite is a condition characterized by horizontal misalignment. This can occur when the uppers overlap the lowers on one side, but the lowers overlap the uppers on the other.
When the front teeth do not come together when biting down on the back teeth, it is referred to as an open bite. This is often caused by childhood habits, such as prolonged bottle use.
Teeth that are crowded or overlapped can be difficult to clean, leading to issues like decay and gum disease. Orthodontic treatment realigns your teeth so brushing and flossing become easier.
Twisted or Rotated Teeth
Twisted or rotated teeth can interfere with proper bite function and have a negative impact on your appearance. With orthodontics, we can straighten your smile, restoring function and oral health.
If there are gaps and spaces in your smile, it can affect oral functions like chewing and speaking. Orthodontic treatment can treat gapped teeth and improve your overall oral health.
