  Q: Why orthodontic treatment?

A: The goals of orthodontic treatment include facial harmony, a great smile
and a good bite - meaning straight teeth that mesh well with the teeth in the
opposite jaw. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak.
This can enhance your dental health and your overall health, and may improve self-esteem.

Orthodontic treatment is often part of a comprehensive dental health care plan. With good care, including orthodontic treatment when necessary, teeth can last a lifetime.

Orthodontic treatment is a smart investment in your dental, physical and emotional health.
