Healthy Teeth

With care and skill, orthodontics positions teeth to help avoid decay and plaque build up. We want the teeth to have the best support possible. The best support needs healthy gums and bone.

Things we do to maintain healthy teeth & bone

Aligned Teeth

Crowded teeth can be very difficult to clean, with the crowding amaking the teeth more prone to decay.

Good Contacts

Good contacts between the teeth help avoid food traps. Food traps irritate the gums which in turn can damage the bone. We aim for good contacts between the teeth to reduce tooth decay and improve gum health.

Root Angles

At least 60% of a tooth is the root. The position and angle of the root can change the appearance of the tooth. We take time to make good root parallelling a part of our treatment protocol.
