Welcome to Ortho by Design


Your smile is your greeting to the world. It’s also a window to an important part of your dental health — the alignment of your teeth.

Not everyone is born with beautiful teeth. Crooked teeth or spaces between the teeth may be a source of embarrassment or self-consciousness. Improperly aligned teeth and jaws, called a malocclusion, can lead to a host of sometimes painful dental disorders.

The good news is that orthodontic treatment can correct these problems and help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile that is good for life.

Why you should get orthodontic treatment

The goal of orthodontic treatment is a good bite, meaning straight teeth that mesh well with the teeth in the opposite jaw. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak. This can enhance your dental health and your overall health, and may improve self-esteem.

Orthodontic treatment is often part of a comprehensive dental health care plan. With good care, including orthodontic treatment when necessary, teeth can last a life time.

Treatment in children or teenagers who are still growing may yield results that may not be possible once the face and jaws have completed their growth.

A healthy bite is as important at age 60 as it is at age 16. Even though adults are no longer growing, they can also enjoy improvements that come from orthodontic treatment. Your age is not a consideration for orthodontic treatment. Healthy teeth can be moved at any age.

Orthodontic treatment is a smart investment in your dental, physical and emotional health.

Orthodontics have come a long way

A variety of orthodontic appliances are available today, thanks to ongoing research in orthodontics. Options include traditional metal braces, tooth-colored braces, braces that go behind the teeth, and clear aligners and other devices, as appropriate. Our orthodontists will explain the best way to achieve your treatment goals.

Comfortable and efficient, today’s orthodontic appliances also contribute to a stable, long-lasting result. While the appliances used in orthodontic treatment have come a long way since orthodontics became dentistry’s first specialty in 1900, what endures is orthodontists’ desire to help you achieve your healthiest bite possible.
