Orthodontics and Oral Health: A Winning Combination

Orthodontic services, including traditional braces and Invisalign®, offer a range of benefits beyond simply straightening teeth. Issues like spacing, crowding, crossbite, overbite, or open bite can lead to dental malocclusions, making brushing and flossing challenging. Trapped food particles and tartar in these areas often harbor bacteria, potentially leading to gum diseases.

Fortunately, orthodontic treatments for teeth alignment and an efficient oral hygiene routine can significantly reduce the risk of disease and decay. A properly aligned bite enhances the comfort and effectiveness of chewing, ultimately improving digestion and nutrition. Dr. Taylor welcomes patients of all ages for personalized consultations and employs advanced orthodontic solutions such as Invisalign to ensure effective treatment.

Teeth Straightening Solutions


Invisalign is an enhanced orthodontic treatment that offers a discreet and convenient alternative to traditional braces. These clear aligners are custom-made to fit your teeth precisely, gently guiding them into their ideal position. One of the key advantages of Invisalign is its nearly invisible appearance, making it a popular choice among adults and teens who wish to straighten their teeth without the conspicuous look of metal braces. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, Invisalign aligners are removable, allowing for easy oral hygiene maintenance and flexibility to enjoy your favorite foods during treatment.

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces are time-tested and effective for straightening teeth and correcting bite issues. Comprised of metal or ceramic brackets affixed to your teeth, they work with wires and rubber bands to gradually shift teeth into proper alignment. While they may be more noticeable than alternative treatments like Invisalign, traditional braces are highly versatile and suitable for addressing many orthodontic issues, from simple to complex! Dr. Taylor will provide regular adjustments to ensure your treatment progresses smoothly, resulting in a beautifully aligned smile and improved oral health.

Phase One Treatments

Phase one orthodontic options, like Rapid Palatal Expanders (RPEs) and expanders, are valuable tools in early orthodontic intervention. RPEs help address narrow palates by gently widening the upper jaw, creating more space for incoming permanent teeth, and improving overall dental harmony. Conversely, expanders can be used to correct crowding and misalignment issues by gradually widening the arches and allowing for proper tooth alignment. These treatments are often recommended for our younger patients to lay the foundation for future orthodontic work, making later treatment phases more effective and streamlined while promoting optimal oral health and aesthetics.

Benefitting from a Straight, Affordable Smile

A straight smile offers numerous benefits beyond just aesthetic appeal. It can significantly enhance oral health, making it easier to maintain good hygiene practices and less prone to issues like gum disease and cavities, reducing the need for costly dental treatments.

Beyond the numerous oral health benefits, a straight smile significantly impacts your aesthetic appeal and self-esteem, improving your social and professional interactions. While dental insurance plans cover a portion of orthodontic expenses, flexible financing plans make it easier to budget for treatment. Investing in a straight smile contributes to your well-being and provides long-term savings by preventing potential dental complications.
