Orthodontics

Orthodontics / Braces in Brainerd and Baxter MNWhat is Orthodontics?

When describing orthodontics, most people just refer to braces. While the majority of orthodontic cases involve braces, there are alternatives that may be used for younger children or adults. Arch expanders for younger children can minimize or eliminate the need for braces when the problem is treated early enough. Invisible, clear plastic retainers, instead of braces, can be used by adults for mild to moderate crowding problems.

What are the Benefits of Orthodontics?

  • Reduce the risk of injury - prominent teeth are more prone to trauma
  • Reduce the risk of decay - crooked teeth are harder to clean
  • Reduce the risk of developing TMJ problems
  • Eliminate the excessive wear on your teeth that can be caused by a poorly aligned bite
  • Straight teeth provide a healthier, more attractive smile
  • A beautiful smile increases your confidence and self-esteem
