The Benefits of Straight Teeth

Having a functional bite and straight teeth can improve your quality of life and your overall health.

Orthodontic treatment can:

  • Makes teeth easier to clean, reducing your risk of tooth decay and gum disease
  • Minimizes the chance for dental injury by shifting protruding teeth into place
  • Aids in preventing bone and gum loss
  • Reduces the uneven wear of tooth enamel
  • Helps you chew and speak properly
  • Can alleviate jaw pain and headaches, in some cases
  • Improves your appearance and brings your facial features into harmony
  • Boosts your confidence and self-esteem!

High-Tech, Low-Stress Treatment Options

Dr. Melanie uses the latest technologies and treatments, ensuring you’ll get better results more quickly, comfortably and aesthetically. While our metal braces are much lower profile than they were in the past, if that’s not your thing, we also offer advanced clear braces, 3M™ Clarity™ Aligners, TLC Aligners and Invisalign®. Or, if you have a more complex case, Dr. Melanie is a pioneer in hybrid treatment, using both braces and clear aligners. What are you waiting for? Let’s create your dream smile today!
