Frequently Asked Questions

A beautiful smile is just one of the benefits that orthodontic treatment has to offer. Bringing teeth, lips and jaws into proper alignment produces not only a great smile, but a healthy one as well. Straight teeth simply function better and are easier to keep clean. The increased confidence and self-esteem that a healthy smile provides are often listed as a patient’s #1 treatment goal. This psychological benefit can be a significant factor in the decision to undergo treatment.
