A NEW SMILE?

This summer, add a new smile to your list! With cutting-edge products and advancements in technology, starting orthodontic treatment is more convenient than ever before — offering a lifelong healthy and happy smile.

Orthodontic Treatment Options
Invisalign® has become a popular choice for those wanting a beautiful smile without the use of metal braces. This product straightens teeth by using a series of custom-made, invisible liners that gradually shift teeth into place. The best part of this system is that it is virtually invisible, and because the trays are removable, oral care is easier and there are no restrictions on diet.

The revolutionary Damon® System Braces allow for simpler and faster treatment. Its design requires less adjustments so appointments can be spaced out.  Plus, the appliances are discreet, comfortable and easy to keep clean, making it the perfect option for busy adults and children alike.

Health Benefits
Studies continually show a strong link between oral health and disease. While tooth decay and gum disease continue to be the most common, others like cardiovascular disease, dementia, respiratory infections, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis all have links to poor oral care.

When teeth are not properly aligned, there are more areas where food and bacteria can collect — leading to the increased plaque and bacteria linked to many of these illnesses.

Additionally, unaligned teeth can place undue stress on the jaw, which can lead to problems with the Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), jaw and neck pain, as well as weakened teeth and an increased risk for chipped or broken teeth.

The power of a great smile can also have other physical, mental, emotional and social benefits:

– A fuller, wider smile
– Better facial balance
– Improved profiles and a more youthful appearance
– Increased self-confidence
– Positive social and professional impact
– Easier oral care
– Increased chance of keeping your adult teeth
– Long-term cost savings on overall dental health
