Dr. Emily Marx and Dr. Doug Arjes are general dentists who offer orthodontic treatment (braces and the alternative of Invisalign orthodontic treatment), in their dental office.
ONE OF THE FIRST THINGS A PERSON NOTICES ABOUT ANOTHER IS THEIR SMILE.
There are many other benefits of teeth that line up properly:
- The positions of the teeth, a nice broad smile, and the symmetrical alignment of the front teeth can enhance beauty and a person’s self-esteem
- Teeth in good alignment are easier to keep clean and more resistant to cavities and gum disease
- Correct positioning of teeth reduces the damage of tooth wear and tear due to the friction of teeth rubbing each other at incorrect angles
- The jaw joints (TMJs) are more comfortable when the teeth and jaws are in harmony.
Orthodontics is the art of aligning teeth. Teeth that are straight and white can make a person feel more youthful. Today’s straightening options include conventional metal braces, tooth colored braces, and clear aligners from Invisalign. With so many choices for orthodontic treatment it isn’t just for children anymore.Whether child or adult, each patient wants a better smile and straighter teeth. We always take the patient’s goals into consideration and often orthodontic treatment is their best choice. Their plan will not only improve their smile but will also improve their overall dental health and minimize wear or attrition of teeth due to poor fit of the teeth against each other.
