IS ORTHODONTICS FOR YOU?
Deciding to make the investment in a straighter, healthier smile is a big choice. The time commitment, multiple visits, and even the cost of your braces come into play.
Orthodontics is right for you if…
You Finally Have Access To Better Dental Coverage
Maybe growing up, you didn’t have dental insurance or your parents couldn’t afford to pay for you to get braces. Now you’re independent and can budget for what’s most important to you personally. For some people, that means finally getting braces.
Thanks to affordable payment options, it’s easier to finance braces than ever before. That’s why so many working adults and parents are finally deciding to invest in their own smiles.
You’re Ready For Your Smile Makeover
Having beautiful teeth is important to you. Perhaps your current smile makes you feel too embarrassed to do something as simple as smile in photographs. Straighter teeth can boost your confidence and help you to feel more outgoing.
Having healthy, properly aligned teeth makes it easier for your cosmetic dentist to provide services like veneers or bonding,
without compromising their integrity. Orthodontic treatment serves to provide a great template to work with.
You Didn’t Wear Your Retainer After Previous Treatment
You already wore braces once. But, either you didn’t wear your retainer or when your wisdom teeth came in, they pushed your teeth together again. Now you
see crowding or gaps where teeth have shifted back into place.
Your Bite Has Changed Over Time
The older we get the more forward our teeth tend to drift. Look in the mirror; do your lower front teeth appear pushed together or starting to look flat? Aligning them properly can help you extend the life of healthy teeth.
You Need A Comprehensive Approach to Treating Gum Disease
Crooked, misaligned teeth are difficult to keep clean. Even if you floss each day and use an electric toothbrush, there will be areas that you just can’t reach. That’s why these teeth are so much more likely to suffer the effects of tooth decay and gum (periodontal) disease.
Straightening your teeth with braces can help you to better care for your smile and reverse gum disease. Your dentist or periodontist may recommend orthodontic therapy as a part of your non-surgical treatment alternative.
You Suffer from TMJ Disorder (TMD)
Your jaw moves thousands of times each day. It relies on the upper and lower teeth to have a healthy biting relationship, so that it can work efficiently. But if your teeth don’t align properly, it causes minor modifications in your jaw function. This might not seem very significant, but over time it can cause pain and deterioration to your jaw and surrounding muscles.
You’re Concerned About Limited Treatment Options
Maybe you’ve been hesitant about seeing an orthodontist because you still don’t like the idea of “metal mouth.” Thanks to advancements in technology and materials, we can now straighten your teeth with clear or tooth-colored appliances. From invisible trays to ceramic brackets, or lingual orthodontics, you have more cosmetic braces options than ever before.

“I truly cannot express how grateful I am to Dr Aliu and her team. My whole treatment has been an experience of a life time. My teeth were really crooked and I never thought I could get them as perfectly straight as they currently are especially since I was an adult when I started treatment. For that, I’m truly grateful. I had consultations with other offices, but once I made it to Dr Aliu’s office I knew i had found my home. The staff is really professional and they bend over backwards to make sure you are well taken care of. Thank you so much to Dr Aliu and the team at Elite Orthodontics for my beautiful smile. Because of you, new doors have been opened for me especially in my career.”
