More adults are wearing orthodontic appliances than ever before. Crowded, crooked or misaligned teeth can make chewing difficult and can be very unsightly. Orthodontics work by placing gentle pressure on the teeth to move them into proper alignment. Mild misalignment of the teeth can often be treated with simple filing and wearing a removable appliance. This treatment may take less than 2 months with a wonderful aesthetic result. A strong healthy smile takes years off one’s appearance. Ask us about orthodontics if you’re concerned about crowding, out of line or spread out teeth.
