Do you avoid looking at your teeth when you look in the mirror? Are you unhappy with the gaps in your teeth but are unsure what to do about it? We want our patients to know that we are always here to discuss any insecurities or thoughts you have about your teeth. At times, patients are unsure of what options are available to them to make improvements that would enhance their quality of life. For example, there are patients who thought they were too old or wouldn’t be a candidate to improve the straightness of their teeth. We assisted them with orthodontic treatment, and now they love their smiles and show them off whenever they can. Continue reading to learn about how we can help you straighten your teeth as well.
Never too Old for Orthodontic Treatment
We never want to hear our patients say that they feel too old to start a dental treatment such as orthodontics. One of our goals is to help you have the smile that you dream of. Orthodontic treatment is not the same as it was many years ago, and we offer treatment to patients from children to adults. At the end of the day, we believe in treating orthodontic problems and issues with the alignment of your teeth and jaw and are not concerned with your age. We offer orthodontic treatments such as Invisalign®, which uses clear aligner trays to move teeth into the desired position discreetly.
Why Orthodontic Treatment is Necessary
There are many reasons we might suggest orthodontic treatment for you or your loved one. With children, crowding of the teeth is a large problem. When this occurs, adult teeth are not able to grow properly. We also have a number of patients, children and adults, who have bite issues that can affect the jaw. This can impact speech, chewing, and even the way the mouth moves when it is opened. Gaps between teeth and crooked teeth can also lead to issues with food becoming lodged in between, causing tooth decay from bacteria and plaque.

We are excited for the opportunity to help you transform your smile and finally have a grin you can be proud to show off or look at in the mirror.
