Orthodontics: Braces, Propel, and Invisalign®


A woman pulls out a clear orthodontic retainer from her mouth.Many people make the mistake of thinking that if they are okay with the look of their smile and that they do not need to see a dentist for straighter teeth. Unfortunately, this not the case, and it causes many people to live with painful chewing or possibly difficulty speaking. Straight teeth do more than provide you with a pretty smile, they make it easier to talk, bite and chew your food. Even if you think you do not need to seek orthodontic care, it might be worth a consultation to see what is going on in your mouth that you might not be aware of.

Receive orthodontic care at any age

You only get one chance at healthy teeth and gums, which means it is well worth the effort it takes to keep them in good shape. Typically orthodontic care is done as a child or teen in order to reap the greatest benefits, but there is no age limit on who can actually receive care to make their teeth as straight as possible.

Many adults who remember the days of head gear and other restrictive orthodontic appliances quietly shy away from seeing an orthodontist, despite the state of their smile. Today, however, orthodontics have greatly changed giving everyone many choices, including clear aligners that make braces less noticeable for those who might feel embarrassed.
