Orthodontics, literally straight-teeth, can move your teeth into an attractive and healthy configuration. And what’s more: orthodontics are faster and more convenient than ever.

Benefits of Orthodontics

Why get orthodontics? Straight teeth are certainly one of the key signs of an attractive smile, but that’s only the beginning. With straight teeth, you can get:

  • An attractive smile
  • Better social acceptance
  • Less food caught in teeth
  • Easier hygiene
  • Lower risk of gum disease
  • Potential for lower risk of tooth loss

Of course, a straighter smile looks better than one that is crooked, crowded, or gapped. Since your smile is your introduction, this can lead to better first impressions and better social acceptance, including improved personal and professional relationships.

Straightening your teeth can reduce the spaces where food can get stuck, especially seeds, which can be a nuisance. Your teeth will be easier to clean, too, and with more effective cleaning, your risk of gum disease can go down. Some studies indicate that people who get orthodontics might reduce their risk of gum disease by nearly 50%. Since gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, this could help save your teeth in the future.

Get Teeth Straightened Faster

We know that many people didn’t get their teeth straightened when younger because it seemed like too much of a hassle. Good news: straightening your teeth is easier than ever–and faster, too, thanks to the development of new techniques and technology.

Six Month Smiles is braces that work smarter, not harder–and that means faster results and less discomfort than traditional braces. Invisalign is an orthodontic approach that gets rid of metal brackets and wires completely–it uses clear plastic aligners. Plus, it’s also gotten faster and better than it used to be.

Orthodontics got faster because it got smarter and can focus on straightening the teeth that matter most to you–the visible front teeth. Plus, advances in computer science and materials allow for more efficient movements.

Appearances matter, but orthodontics does more for you. Straighter teeth are easier to clean, and some studies suggest that orthodontics can reduce your risk of gum disease in the future.

Orthodontic Options

The discipline of orthodontics is nearly 200 years old, but modern orthodontics is constantly changing and improving. We offer two advanced options to straighten your teeth.


Invisalign straightens your teeth without wires or brackets. Instead, it uses a precise, computer-designed sequence of clear plastic aligners to move your teeth into place. No cleaning around wires and brackets–and you don’t have to give up any of your favorite foods.

Six Month Smiles

Why spend a year or more in braces if you don’t have to? For many people, it’s possible to get a straighter, more attractive smile in about six months. With more efficient office visits, too, you’ll enjoy the time savings–and you might save money, too.
