Why Braces?

Your dentist may have discussed with you the benefits of having healthy teeth and proper jaw alignment. A board certified orthodontist such as Dr. Cook is a specialist in Dento-facial Orthodopedics and will know if and when it is ideal to begin treatment. He will educate you on how to obtain the best dental/facial esthetics as well as the best bite possible. Crooked and crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain. This can result in tooth decay, worsen gum disease and lead to tooth loss. Our office works hard to help you prevent tooth decay from happening by using a treatment called Opalseal.

Other orthodontic problems can contribute to abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, inefficient chewing function, excessive stress on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth, or misalignment of the jaw joints. Treatment by an orthodontist can be less costly than the additional care required to treat future dental problems arising as a result of routine orthodontic problems.

A thorough orthodontic treatment plan can improve the health of your teeth and gums, and it can also dramatically improve your personal appearance and self-confidence.
