Are you thinking about self-improvement for 2016 and wondering if a straighter smile is a good goal to add to your list? For some patients, thinking about aligning smiles with orthodontic care is new territory, which means questions abound. For others, they have been wishing for a uniform smile since childhood and are focused on treatment options. Allow us to answer a diverse set of questions commonly asked during consultations, so we can get you headed toward a straighter smile for 2016.

Questions and Answers: Straighter Smile

Question: Are there any reasons beyond the fact that my smile will look better to consider orthodontic care?

Answer: Yes. While it is always extremely beneficial to feel good about your smile’s appearance, seeking treatment is also good for your oral health. An aligned smile is one that reduces your chances of tooth decay, bruxism, and TMJ disorder.

Question: Which treatments do you offer? Can I expect anything other than traditional braces?

Answer: Our orthodontic care includes a variety of treatments for many needs. In addition to traditional braces, we offer clear braces (brackets and wires), Invisalign treatment, MTM Clear Aligners (for minor needs), and permanent retainers.

Question: How can I find out if I even qualify for orthodontic care or which type of system I need?

Answer: We encourage you to schedule a visit with us at your earliest convenience. If you are hoping for a straighter smile in 2016, we urge you to come in for a consultation – remember that in addition to orthodontics, we offer cosmetic treatments. Whatever your concern, we can help you achieve a more esthetically pleasing smile.
