  • Age Doesn’t Have to Stop You From Straightening Your Smile

    Cowboys wear Stetsons; ballerinas wear tutus; and teenagers wear…braces. At least that’s the popular conception. In actuality, one in five orthodontic patients is an adult, a number that continues to grow. Even adults over fifty are straightening their teeth and improving their smiles. But it’s still a big step and many adults are wary to […]

  • Practice Daily Hygiene to Avoid Gum Swelling While Wearing Braces

    Straightening your smile doesn’t happen overnight—it can involve months or even years of orthodontic treatment. And although the end result is well worth it, the long process can make it difficult to keep your gums healthy, especially while wearing braces. Gum swelling in particular is a common problem for braces wearers with two potential sources. […]

  • Orthodontics Could be in Your Smile Makeover Plan

    When considering “smile makeover” options, it’s easy to focus on whitening, veneers or implants — techniques and materials focused mainly on the teeth and gums. But if you don’t also consider the bigger picture of how your upper and lower teeth come together to form your bite, these efforts may be a lot like picking […]

  • Early Intervention can Correct Abnormal Upper Jaw and Palate Growth

    Poor bites, also known as “malocclusions,” can have a dramatic impact on mouth function and appearance. Moving teeth to better positions will solve most of these bite problems — but not all. A case in point is a malformed maxilla, the skeletal structure formed by the union of the upper jaw and the roof of […]

  • Orthodontics Could be the Smile Transformer You’ve Been Looking For

    When designing your new smile, we have a lot of options for changing how individual teeth look: from whitening discolored teeth to replacing missing teeth with life-like dental implants. But the problem may not be how your teeth look — in fact, individually they may look perfect. If they’re not straight, though, your smile won’t […]

  • 4 Signs Your Child May Have a Poor Bite

    Although tooth decay is a major problem to watch for in your child’s teeth, it isn’t the only one. As their teeth transition from primary (“baby”) to permanent, you should also be on the lookout for a developing poor bite or malocclusion.

  • Drawing Impacted Teeth into the Open can Restore a Smile

    You don’t have to be a dental professional to appreciate a beautiful smile. Likewise, you’ll also know when something’s not quite right with one. Such can be the case when a tooth fails to erupt properly, causing most or all of the crown to remain below the gum line, a condition known as impaction. Upper […]

  • Orthodontics and Your Teen

    In many ways, the teenage years are the best time to have orthodontic treatment. It’s a good time emotionally because your teen is likely to have friends who also wear braces; orthodontic treatment becomes a rite of passage they can go through together. It’s also advantageous in a physical sense because all 20 baby teeth […]

  • Early Orthodontic Techniques Could Stop Growing Bite Problems

    The longer many health problems go on, the worse they become. Treating them as early as possible could stop or slow their development. That holds true for poor bites: while we can certainly correct them later in life, it’s often better to “intercept” the problem during childhood. Interceptive orthodontics attempts to do this with treatments that influence […]

  • Get Ahead of a Developing Cross-Bite with This Early Intervention Measure

    Applying braces or clear aligners to move misaligned teeth is only part of an orthodontist’s overall mission to eliminate poor bites (malocclusions). Sometimes a malocclusion isn’t caused by the teeth at all—the size of the jaw is the problem! One type in particular, a cross-bite, often happens because the upper jaw has developed too narrowly.
