Creating Beautiful Smiles So You Can Make Your Best First Impression

When you smile, you tell the world and those around you that you are happy. Unfortunately, if you have crooked teeth, an overbite or an underbite, you may be hesitant to smile and show off your teeth. A beautiful smile that you are confident in will help improve your day, as well as the day of others that you see. Thankfully, with assistance from our helpful and caring team at Maryland Center for Orthodontics and Dental Sleep Medicine, you can achieve a beautiful and healthy smile that you can be proud to show off and make your Best First Impression!

Why should malocclusions (bad bites) be treated?

According to studies by the American Association of Orthodontists, untreated malocclusions can result in a variety of problems:

  • Crowded teeth are more difficult to properly brush and floss, which may contribute to tooth decay and/or gum disease.
  • Protruding teeth are more susceptible to accidental chipping.
  • Crossbites can result in unfavorable growth patterns and uneven tooth wear.
  • Open bites can result in tongue-thrusting habits, speech impediments and premature loss of back teeth.

Early Treatment

Though an orthodontist can enhance a smile at any age, there is an optimal time period to begin treatment. We are experts in determining whether early (interceptive) orthodontic treatment is valuable to a child. Early orthodontic treatment can relieve or correct many bite problems before they become permanent or before bad habits form.

Ultimately, orthodontics does more than just make a pretty smile – it creates a healthier you!
