Our experienced dentists and team provide orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth and correct your bite. Orthodontics is a branch of dental care that focuses on irregularities of the alignment of the teeth and jaw, and it may be recommended for a number of issues, including:
- Misaligned teeth
- Crowded teeth
- Gapped and spaced teeth
- Bad bites (including overbites, underbites, crossbites and open bites)
While most people consider orthodontics a way to improve the appearance of their smile, it also serves a more functional purpose. Teeth that are straight and properly aligned are easier to keep clean and healthy with regular brushing and flossing, which minimizes your risk of cavities and gum disease. Properly aligned jaws and teeth also allow you to chew, eat and speak properly, promoting good oral function and effective nutrition.
Orthodontic treatment is available for patients of all ages. The American Association of Orthodontists® recommends that children have their initial screening at age 7, as by this age any problems will be apparent and our dentists can tell if and when orthodontic treatment should begin. Adults are also candidates for orthodontic treatment and can receive their treatment without difficulty as long as their teeth, gums and supporting oral structures are healthy.
There are several orthodontic treatments available at Serenity Dental of Spring, including:
During your initial consultation, our dentists will thoroughly examine your mouth to determine which type of treatment will be most effective for you.
