October is National Orthodontics Month

Visit our offices for low, affordable teeth straightening and dental care in Hoodsport.

Orthodontic Health Month is observed annually in October and reminds you and your family that good oral health can begin early. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that works with the jaw, teeth, and gums to optimize their functions while improving the aesthetics of your smile.

Orthodontics deals with preventing, diagnosing, and treating malocclusion which is improper alignment of the teeth and jaws. Teeth misalignment is corrected with removable or fixed appliances such as braces, retainers, clear aligners, palatal expanders, and surgery. 

Orthodontics modifies facial growth to improve function, such as straightening teeth and treating a crossbite.

Reasons for Orthodontic Care

Regular oral care can improve digestion and overall health while reducing plaque and bacteria in the mouth. It also prevents tooth decay and gum disease. If you’re worried about your oral hygiene or want to ensure it stays healthy, visit us at least twice a year. Affordable dental care services help you resolve misalignments that cause mouth pain and future dental problems.

  • Damaged teeth
  • Jaw Pain (TMJ)
  • Missing teeth
  • Overbites
  • Overcrowded teeth
  • Poorly misaligned teeth
  • Protruding teeth
  • Sensitivity to food issues
  • Spacing issues
  • Underbites

An incorrect bite can lead to many problems for your child later in life. Straightening your child’s teeth while they are still growing is important. It will be easier and more affordable to do it now than wait until they are older and have developed misalignment.

In the past, braces were the go-to option for straightening teeth. Now, we have better, top-of-the-line alternatives that are safer and more effective than braces. 

Candid and Invisalign® are great ways to straighten teeth. Children between the ages of 6 and 14 may qualify for teeth straightening if their permanent teeth have already erupted. Because children lose baby teeth at different times, it’s important to schedule your consultation well before you think your son or daughter may lose any primary teeth. 

  • We are happy to help your teenage child straighten their teeth with several great options that accompany their busy lifestyles.
  • We also can straighten adult teeth for anyone who wishes to have a bright and beautiful smile.
  • Are you a senior? It is never too late to get the look you want. We’re here to help straighten and beautify your smile.
