The basis of orthodontics is for you to have an amazing smile along with a healthy bite. From brightening someone’s day to possibly achieving career advancements, a great many positive effects may come from a great-looking smile. An open and attractive smile can give you an edge and make you stand out next to your competitors at work. In addition, it boosts your self-esteem and makes you feel much more self-confident.
Orthodontic care along with good oral hygiene can almost guarantee that your teeth will last a lifetime. You may need orthodontic treatment if you have crowded, misplaced or blocked-out teeth.

Other reasons you may need orthodontic treatment may include teeth that touch in an abnormal way or don’t touch at all, facial imbalance or asymmetry (features out of proportion to the rest of the face), the inability to comfortably close the lips, grinding or clenching of teeth, and many other reasons.

Choose between Traditional Braces and ClearCorrect Clear Aligners:
If you need braces because of excessive crowding or spaces between teeth, traditional braces will be your best choice. This method allows more tooth movements to achieve desired results. ClearCorrect aligners work well for patients who require minor tooth movements. Some people are more conscious of their appearance and would rather go with ClearCorrect aligners (invisible form of braces) but traditional braces remain the most effective. The good news is that braces these days are much more appealing than they have been in the past.
The treatment for ClearCorrect clear aligners consists of four phases. You will need a new set of aligners for each new phase and they are worn for a period of three weeks at a time. This is a great alternative to traditional braces if you want a more discreet form of braces. ClearCorrect works for:

Braces for Children
Crowded, widely-spaced or crooked teeth, as well as misaligned jaws and bite can be detected in young children. The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that children see an orthodontist by age seven at the latest. One of the keys to determining when a young child will need braces is the severity of their bite problem. Severe bite problems in young children can interfere with chewing and speech. It can even lead to jaw strain as well as gum damage.
Having a beautiful smile is a key factor for your child’s self-confidence. However, there are many health reasons why it may be beneficial for your child to get braces. By having straight teeth, your child will be able to speak and eat more effectively. Straight teeth are easier to clean and less likely to decay—which improves overall oral health.
Braces for Adults
Braces are a great investment and many adults see the benefits in just a few short years. Not only will you love your new smile but you will also begin to notice more comfort in everyday things such as chewing and talking.
Braces not only help with comfort, but they can also alleviate many of the secondary issues adults may experience such as headaches, earaches, problems with chewing, speaking, and/or biting, gastrointestinal problems from the inability to chew food properly, and jaw pain—just to name a few.
A few other reasons to consider getting braces as an adult are:
- Crowded/Crooked Teeth
- Spaces Between Teeth
- Jaw Disorders
- Incorrect Jaw Positions
