Highland Park / University Park Orthodontics
Orthodontics can drastically change your teeth and enhance your appearance. However, orthodontics can also be extremely important to your overall dental health. Crooked teeth, crowding, and a misaligned bite can lead to tooth decay, loss of tooth enamel, wearing down of molars, gum and bone loss, migraines and jaw issues.
While the American Association of Orthodontists recommends an evaluation for children no later than seven years old, orthodontics is not just for kids. If your dental health is good, you may be a candidate. Recent technology has made it possible to provide orthodontic care without the discomfort of braces and other metal appliances. Using Invisalign or ClearCorrect Invisable Braces, Dr. Ted Smith and his staff can help you get straight teeth and a beautiful smile without having to be self-conscious. These techniques can shorten your treatment time and even help you to maintain your dental health, as they make brushing and flossing easy. They provide the same physical movement of your teeth as traditional braces, but use a different vehicle for the delivery of that movement.
If you want to correct crooked teeth, spaces, overlapping teeth, rotated teeth, or a misaligned bite, contact Dr. Ted Smith for a free consultation visit. We will determine the best treatment for your needs and come up with a timeline. Using specific orthodontic techniques, you can have a dazzling smile in no time.
