Having a spectacular smile is an obvious benefit of orthodontics. Straight teeth look great and they can improve your self-esteem. But the benefits go beyond that. Having a bite that is properly aligned can improve the way you speak, bite and chew—improving not just your dental health, but your overall health. Board-certified orthodontist Dr. Jessica Hylan-Cohen offers a full range of treatment for both children and adults.
Traditional metal braces and brackets come to mind for most people when they think of orthodontics. But today’s braces have many options for adults and children, including braces made of ceramic, clear and tooth-colored brackets, and bands in a variety of colors, which teenagers often like.
Instead of traditional braces, Invisalign® invisible braces may be used to correct your smile. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners that can’t be seen at a conversational distance. They straighten teeth in half the time of traditional braces.
Dr. Hylan-Cohen will determine which treatment, or which combination of treatments, is right for your case.
