What Can Orthodontics Do For Me? Enjoy a Straighter, Healthier Smile

Orthodontics is a specialized field of dentistry. If you want to straighten your teeth and improve your bite alignment, an orthodontist has the training and skill to develop a plan that can optimize your oral function, comfort, health, and appearance. During an appointment at our orthodontics practice, Dr. Scott will review the current state of your bite so that he can develop a treatment plan to best meet your individual needs. Orthodontics provides patients a number of benefits, including:

Balanced Bite

Orthodontics allows you to enjoy the benefits of an optimized bite. By utilizing your teeth properly, you can relieve tension in the jaw, which can alleviate headaches and other related symptoms.

Better Oral Health

Straight teeth are easier to maintain than a crooked smile. Through regular dental checkups and excellent dental hygiene, straight teeth allow you to avoid dental decay and other oral health issues.

Improved Aesthetics

A beautiful smile can seriously boost your appearance and your self-esteem. Correcting orthodontic issues in older patients can actually help them appear younger than their years.

Not Just Anyone Can Be an Orthodontist

Advanced Orthodontic Options

Dr. Scott and our experienced orthodontic team are committed to providing the best care possible to our patients. That’s why we offer many options to fit the diverse needs, budgets, and lifestyles of our patients.

Solutions for the Entire Family

It is never too late to enjoy the many benefits provided by orthodontics. Offering more than just straight teeth and a beautiful smile, orthodontic treatment can help preserve your oral health. It can also benefit those who suffer from tension headaches caused by a misaligned bite. Dr. Stuart Scott and our team of compassionate dental professionals can provide your entire family with the care they need to reach optimal oral health. From traditional braces and discreet Invisalign options to teeth whitening, we can help you on your journey to a perfect smile.

Why Invest in a Straighter Smile?

It may seem counterintuitive, but treatment with advanced orthodontics can actually save money in the long run. A straighter smile is easier to clean, lowering your risk of developing decay, infection, and other conditions that can require costly care. The results of our treatment can also help you avoid developing temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder, which can be complex and expensive to treat.

Our staff is always willing to explore insurance coverage and financing options that can place the many benefits of these solutions within your reach.

"Best decision I have ever made. Dr Scott and his team were wonderful for the speedy 18months I was in braces. Always clear and calming this experience was superb and the results are quite outstanding. I have never felt so confident and really want to thank Dr Scott for transforming my smile!" Kitara Barnes

Discover Your Flexible Financing Options

We understand that cost is always a concern when it comes to the care your family needs. Our practice is committed to helping our communities find solutions that make braces and our services a comfortable fit for virtually any budget. The long-term benefits of orthodontics far outweigh the upfront costs, but treatment can be a significant investment.

We offer flexible financing options so you can improve the appearance of your teeth and your oral health without worrying about out-of-pocket expenses. This allows those who qualify to pay for their care through a series of manageable payments rather than all at once. Our team can help you determine which financing option is right for you. Our orthodontist offers two financing choices to meet your needs:
