There is no denying the fact that straight teeth are more attractive and aesthetically pleasing. However, correctly aligned teeth also provide significant benefits for your smile health. Straighter teeth are easier to keep clean, which means they are less vulnerable to decay and gum disease. In addition, proper alignment ensures that your teeth and jaw muscles don’t suffer the repeated trauma of a bad bite.
The Grove Family Dentistry proudly offers top-quality orthodontics as a way to improve your smile confidence as well as your dental health and your overall health.

The traditional way of straightening teeth can be long, involved and uncomfortable. In cases of severe misalignment, traditional braces may still be required to achieve the best results; however, for more moderate cases of straightening there are faster, more comfortable options thanks to advances in dental technology:
