Why Straighten Teeth?
Misaligned teeth are more than just an aesthetic issue – they can also cause a variety of oral health problems. If your teeth are misaligned, it may be beneficial to undergo orthodontic treatment, either with traditional metal braces or Invisalign. Your dentist can help you choose the right option for you.

Traditional Metal Braces
Metal braces have been used for decades to straighten teeth. In recent years, advances in orthodontic treatment have resulted in braces that are low-profile, more comfortable and easier to care for.
How Braces Straighten Teeth
Braces apply continuous pressure to the teeth over a period of time, slowly moving them into their new, corrected positions.
As pressure is applied and the teeth move, the bone changes shape to accommodate the new positions of the teeth.
