Why Should I Straighten Mine/My Child’s Teeth?

Parents are often referred to our practice for teeth straightening but are often unsure of the benefits associated with having orthodontic treatment. Contrary to popular belief, straightening of teeth does not serve only as an aesthetic benefit, but it also improves the ability for your child to keep their teeth clean as well as improved function. We also notice a great improvement in the self-confidence of our patients in school, work or in their social activities.

Our patients in treatment range from 7 to 60 years, showing that one is never too young or old to start smiling again.

Additional benefits would also include:

  • Reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease by improving “cleanability”
  • Decrease the risk of irregular or excessive tooth wear
  • Help establish normal oral function related to chewing, breathing, and speech
  • Decrease the risk of dental trauma (accidental chipped, broken or lost teeth)
  • Correct improper jaw relationships and reduce stress on the facial muscles and jaw joints
