Orthodontics is a field of dentistry that specializes in improving a person’s bite. Braces are used to straighten or move teeth to improve the mouth’s appearance and its ability to work properly. There are many orthodontic treatment options available for children, adolescents, and adults.
This is generally the best option if you are looking for the absolute best result when not only straightening teeth but also fixing your bite. In the past adults have been hesitant to do this as they equate it to the silver metal braces their childhood friends had. Nowadays there are nearly invisible tooth colored brackets and many adults are choosing this option.
Would you like to have straight teeth but do not want to wear metal braces? Invisalign is a way to straighten teeth without them. Dr. Mitchell will make a clear mouthpiece or tray for you that will straighten your teeth over time. These trays are removable so you can brush and eat normally.
