The Benefits of Orthodontic Care 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 offices in Silver Spring or Mitchellville, 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 a properly aligned bite. By utilizing your teeth correctly, 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 crooked teeth. With regular dental checkups and excellent dental hygiene, straight teeth help you avoid dental decay and other oral health issues.

Improved Aesthetics

A beautiful smile can seriously boost your appearance and your self-esteem. If you're an older patient, correcting orthodontic issues can actually help you appear younger.

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 diverse needs, budgets, and lifestyles.

Oh wow, I knew at a very early age my son would need braces! I didn’t waste any time and that was one of the best decision I could have made, investing in my son’s smile. I wanted to get mine done but as a single parent, I made sure my son’s were as straight as mine or stranger. Now that I’m getting more mature my teeth are shifting and yes even my son noticed. So now aft 13 yrs it will be my turn to straighten my teeth.My son still has his permanent retainer at the bottom and still wears the top at night. He doesn’t want his teeth to ever look like what it was before Dr. Scott fixed them.♥️

 I got Invisalign to correct my cross-bite and other issues. From the first visit, he outlines everything and showed me a 3D imaging to project the timeline and show how the teeth are supposed to align by those benchmarks. He and his treatment coordinator made it easy to understand. Dr. Scott is a personable fun doctor, he has exceptional bedside manner, and his staff are kind and warm from front-end to back-end. I definitely recommend all my friends and family to Dr. Scott! Now I can show off my smile! :D

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 18 months 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!" Kiah Barnes
