For many adults and teens, crooked or imperfect teeth can have a negative impact on their self-confidence. If you are embarrassed by your smile, chances are the people around you are missing out on how approachable, confident, and knowledgeable you really are. By fixing your smile, you can boost your self-esteem and be more open and engaged with the people around you.
Moreover, what’s going on in your mouth is connected to your overall physical health. Studies have shown that gum disease is associated with an increased risk of heart disease and poor oral hygiene increases the risk of bacterial infections in the blood. The American Dental Association reports that misaligned teeth are also linked to strokes, pneumonia, and diabetes.
When your teeth are spaced correctly, those nooks and crannies that once were more prone to harboring bacteria are now more easily reached. With straighter teeth, you can more effectively clean against toothdecay, gum disease, and cavities.
At Kelly Orthodontics, we practice the most innovative orthodontic care with amazing results. We make the process of getting straight teeth as quick, comfortable, and stress-free as possible. Our orthodontic services include:
Invisalign - This popular orthodontic treatment uses a series of clear aligners that change the position of your teeth through steady pressure. The aligners are clear and difficult to detect during wear, perfect for adults and teens who want a subtle treatment solution. Invisalign can be used to treat some of the most common cosmetic dental problems, such as gaps between teeth, overbites, underbites, and mouth crowding.
Traditional Braces - Metal braces are the most common option for a variety of reasons, including durability and cost. While they have been around for decades, constant innovation means that metal braces are more advanced than ever before and are a great option for straightening teeth, especially in severe cases.
Ceramic Braces - While they work similarly to metal braces, ceramic braces are a popular choice among many patients because they are less visible due to their clear color. If you want spectacular results without the aesthetic concerns caused by metal braces, ceramic braces may be a great option for you.
