Why orthodontics?

You probably know that orthodontic treatment is a way to straighten your teeth and achieve a beautiful smile. But did you know that these aren’t the only benefits?

Orthodontic treatment is an opportunity to improve the functionality of the teeth and bite, correct facial imbalance, facilitate better oral hygiene, properly prepare for restorations and/or implants, improve sleep, and boost self-esteem.

Fortunately, these benefits can be realized at almost any age! The impact of orthodontic treatment can be subtle or life-changing – so allow our doctors to diagnose and develop the best solution for you or your child.

Drs. Leone and Vaughn work collaboratively to plan the best possible way to achieve balance between the hard and soft structures of the face, the smile, and the teeth. We strive for a harmony that allows our patients to easily exercise those facial muscles when smiling; feel confident in a social setting; and permits them to savor the meal at their favorite restaurant. It’s our hope that patients look in the mirror years from now and say, “that was one of the best decisions I've ever made

Please learn more about orthodontics and how we can accomplish treatment with a variety of techniques below.

Let us help find the best solution for you!

Metal Braces
Metal Braces

Metal braces are the traditional type of braces used for orthodontic correction.

Along with orthodontic wires, the orthodontist can control the position and orientation of the teeth. Our self-ligating brackets have doors that close over the wires, ensuring gentle pressure for the patient and excellent control for the orthodontist.

Ceramic (or clear) braces are an excellent alternative to traditional metal braces for patients who prefer their braces to be less noticeable. Along with orthodontic wires, ceramic braces offer orthodontists the same control to move the teeth. With our self-ligating doors, we can move the teeth efficiently and gently without so much metal in the mouth.
