We specialize in Orthodontics. Braces are used to assist in aligning and straightening teeth in order to not only improve appearance but improve a person’s bite. Having braces isn’t just about improving your smile; it’s also about improving your overall dental health. Orthodontics may be used to correct malocclusions such as overbites, underbites, cross bites, deep bites, crooked teeth and other imperfections of the teeth and jaws. Braces may be used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help with making corrections to a person’s bite.
Dental technology has improved over the years to include new options to help correct the above issues, and there are a number of techniques and products available that were not available just a few short years ago.
In our office, one of the newer orthodontic options we offer are Invisalign® clear aligners as an alternative to more traditional style braces. These clear aligners are virtually invisible, providing patients a less conspicuous way to transform their smiles!
Traditional metal braces are still the most popular types of braces as they produce high-quality results. Clear Ceramic braces are popular with adults and teenagers who want the results of braces without the look of metal. Your visit will begin with a consultation with Dr. Cos to go over the best alternatives for your orthodontic care. Dr. Cos will address any questions you may have regarding your treatment and will provide a plan for orthodontic therapy.
