Orthodontics is one of the fields within dental care. The main focus of orthodontics is correcting irregularities in the teeth, especially how they are aligned and fit together. Through orthodontics, we can correct misaligned, crowded, or gapped teeth. We can also correct problems with the alignment of the jaws and bite, including overbite, open bite, crossbite, and underbite. We offer several options for orthodontics in Ithaca, New York, to meet all of your individual needs and preferences. During your personalized orthodontic consultation with our dentist, we will help you choose an orthodontic treatment that fits your desires and needs for a straight, beautiful smile.
Most people understand that having a properly aligned smile improves the aesthetics of your smile. However, not everyone is aware that a straight smile is healthier as well. Straight teeth are generally at a lower risk for dental diseases and problems like tooth decay, periodontal disease, and more. When your teeth are properly aligned, it is easier to effectively clean them and keep your smile healthy. If you are interested in learning how we can help you achieve a straight and healthy smile, please contact our dental office today, 607-273-3151. Dr. Janice Hall Ormsby and the rest of our team at East Shore Dental Care are eager to improve your smile!
