There are many reasons to straighten your teeth, ranging from purely aesthetic to improving your oral health and function. Straighter teeth give you a more attractive smile, boosting your self-confidence as well as your appearance. Teeth which are properly aligned are also easier to keep clean with normal brushing and flossing, and they can perform regular functions such as chewing, biting and speaking more effectively.

Crooked or improperly aligned teeth may cause or contribute to a number of oral health problems, including:

  • Tooth decay
  • Uneven wear of the tooth enamel
  • Tooth injury
  • Periodontal disease
  • TMJ disorders, including many side effects of the condition such as headaches, jaw pain, lockjaw and bruxism

Teeth may be straightened using traditional braces, Invisalign® clear aligners or other orthodontic treatment options. Our periodontist will review your treatment options with you to help you find the right type of treatment for your oral health needs, smile goals and lifestyle. We will also provide you with a retainer following your treatment to ensure that your newly aligned teeth remain in their proper positions. Orthodontic treatment is available for patients of all ages.
