With orthodontics, you have the power to not only enhance the appearance of your smile but also improve your oral health. Many people don’t realize that straight teeth are less susceptible to decay and gum disease, and they can even help make it easier for you to chew. When you come in for an orthodontic consultation at Riccobene Associates Family Dentistry, we’ll assess your teeth-straightening needs and identify the best treatment option to get you the straight smile you deserve.
What Orthodontics Can Fix
Orthodontics can fix a wide range of issues with how your teeth are aligned. Some of the common dental conditions fixed with orthodontics include crowding, crooked teeth, spaced teeth, overbites, underbites, and protruding teeth. Our team of orthodontists has experience tailoring treatment plans to each individual patient in order to address their unique concerns and prevent serious problems from occurring in the future.
