Today’s orthodontic methods are less painful and less disruptive to your daily life than they were even a decade ago. Following your initial evaluation, we will discuss treatment plan options that best suit your needs and preferences. Options include traditional metal braces (that are fun to change out colors), clear ceramic braces, removable appliances, and Invisalign. Dr. Khouri and his team will see you every 6-8 weeks to monitor your progress.
Why are straight teeth important? Braces are not just for cosmetic purposes. Studies have shown that straight teeth are less prone to decay, gum disease and injury. Straight teeth also collect less plaque, a colorless and sticky film composed of bacteria, food and saliva. Orthodontic problems can cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces and may worsen with time.
