What Does The Future Hold?

The immediate benefits of orthodontic treatment are quite noticeable. Patients come into our office with crooked and crowded teeth; upper teeth that stick out; and bites that need to be corrected, such as overbites, underbites, and crossbites. After treatment, they walk out with straighter, better aligned teeth that, when followed up with retainer use, can last a lifetime. It’s not just the appearance of teeth that are improved by orthodontic treatment, though. There are other benefits that may not be as noticeable, but are just as important to maintaining a healthy and beautiful smile.

Do You Know If You Have a Deep Bite?

Patients don’t typically come to us because they have concerns with a deep bite, also known as an overbite. It may or may not bother patients, but that doesn’t mean a deep bite doesn’t present dental issues.

A deep bite is the most common malocclusion, or bad bite. It occurs when the top teeth excessively overlap the bottom front teeth while the back teeth are closed. It can be caused by a large top jaw, small lower jaw, or missing lower teeth. The good news is that it can be easily corrected with one of many orthodontic and restorative treatments.

Recipe for a Beautiful Smile

A smile is about more than your teeth. Did you know that the perfect smile depends on actual measurable factors based on science and math? Everything from the shape of the face, size of the mouth, position of the teeth, definition of the cheek bones, color and amount of gum that shows, and more, goes into what makes a smile appealing. Read on for some interesting facts about the link between our face and our smile.

Orthodontic Treatment Could Improve Your Sleep!

When most people hear the word braces, they picture kids and teens with mouths full of metal wanting to achieve a pretty smile. But braces aren’t just for beautiful smiles. There are other benefits to having straight teeth and aligned jaws, including the ability to sleep better. Poor oral health can lead to poor sleep, and sleep is one thing we can’t do without and stay healthy.
