Orthodontics at TC Smiles

Does your bite not line up like it should? Do you wish your teeth were straighter? Your eating habits, level of oral health and confidence are just a few of the aspects of your life that are impacted by misaligned teeth. Orthodontics is a branch of the dental field concerned with restoring the proper position of your teeth and jaws.

At TC Smiles, our team provides three different orthodontic systems to move your teeth: Invisalign®, ClearCorrect and Quick Straight Teeth. Each has its own separate advantages and disadvantages. We’ll discuss your options to make sure that you choose what suits you best.

What Orthodontics Can Do For You

There are many reasons that our patients love having three different orthodontic systems to choose from. The many benefits of straightening your teeth include:

  • Improving your confidence. By straightening your teeth, you can feel confident showing off your smile. It’s arguably the most important part of your face. Aligned teeth are a tremendous step in gaining inner self-confidence that shows to the people around you.
  • Reducing the wear on your teeth. The lifespan in our country reaches into the eighties. With daily function, your teeth can easily get worn down. Straightening teeth allows the force of your jaws to be evenly distributed among teeth. Therefore, orthodontics can make sure that the load is evenly applied to teeth rather than having too much on certain teeth.
  • Increasing your oral hygiene. When your teeth are aligned, it’s easier to properly clean them, removing bacteria and plaque. Plus, by completing treatment, you’ll find that you have a renewed want to keep your teeth clean and healthy.
  • Alleviating jaw problems. Your jaws should move easily. If your jaw isn’t in balance, it can lead to other problems in the future. Orthodontics will reduce these issues, restore balance and make sure that your teeth and jaws work harmoniously.
  • Protecting your gums. If teeth are out of place, it affects the gums and soft tissues when you chew or bite. Over the years, it can cause pain and other problems. By positioning your teeth properly, you won’t have any trauma to the soft tissues in your mouth.
