The Benefits of Seeking Orthodontic Treatment

In addition to having a straighter smile, our orthodontic options can lead to greater oral health in the future. They can even help prevent gum disease by moving teeth that are hard to reach. Braces or aligners can be used to treat patients with severe or simple orthodontic needs.

Improve Your Smile’s Aesthetic | There are many messages that can be conveyed through a smile, whether it is personal or professional. This is why so many of us may feel self-conscious about our smiles. You can feel confident with your smile by improving its aesthetic with the correct orthodontic treatment.

Improve Your Bite | Orthodontics is considered a fantastic way to improve your bite. If you have a weak or misaligned bite, this increases your chances of developing serious dental issues such as TMJ that can cause terrible side-effects such as tension headaches or locking of the jaw.

Protect Your Oral Health | The benefits of straighter teeth go beyond feeling more confident in your smile. Teeth that are crooked or have gaps allow harmful bacteria to build up, which greatly increases the chances of gum disease. Eliminate this risk with our amazing orthodontic procedures!

Become Proactive in Your Overall Well-Being | With straighter teeth and a more aligned smile, your oral care will be easier to maintain. This is essential for a healthier, happier lifestyle. Poor dental health is linked to broader health issues such as hypertension, heart disease, and diabetes.

At Deborah McNeil-Amorteguy, DDS, we offer clear braces, an innovative alternative to metal braces that allow you to have the benefit of straight teeth without the pain, inconvenience, and embarrassment of metal brackets. Whatever orthodontic needs you have, we will work with your schedule to get you the smile you want.
