Sarah’s Story

The #orthodontics profession can be satisfying on multiple levels; how lucky are we to derive additional and unquantifiable joy and satisfaction from our #craniofacial #cleft orthodontic sub-specialty practice. Congratulations on this beautiful testimony written about #mentor, Dr. Ronald Hathaway. Congratulations, Ron! You continue to inspire us to be the very best advocate for all our patients, especially those with complex cleft lip & palate and craniofacial diagnoses. #ACPA.

Sarah’s Story Although I was lucky enough to have countless physicians who went above and beyond the call of duty, I know how rare it is to witness what a “good doctor” should be. I am no…


Straight teeth provide more than a great smile. Teeth are like gears on a wheel. They are made to fit together in a certain way to do a certain job. If they don't fit together, they can't do their job, and this may lead to a variety of oral health problems!


We offer treatment plans and appliances to straighten teeth and align jaws! Contact us today!


We hope that you are having a safe & healthy holiday weekend!


Watch what you eat while wearing braces! Eating too many sugary and starchy foods can cause plaque to build up around the brackets, which can cause staining of the teeth, causing cavities or leading to gum disease.


Fun Fact: Braces are nearly 300 years old! French physician Pierre Fauchard, known as the father of modern dentistry, made the first set of braces in 1728. The braces consisted of a flat piece of metal material connected to the teeth by thread.

Did you know?


Some ways to avoid bad breath includes flossing, brushing your teeth and drinking plenty of water!


When you get braces, you can choose from a variety of colors and switch them out at every visit! They are uniquely yours.


Braces can be used to help an array of health problems besides straightening teeth, including breathing issues, difficulty speaking, and problems with chewing and swallowing!


The American Association of Orthodontics recommends your child to be seen by an orthodontist at earliest of age 7! Schedule your next appointment today!


Invisalign treatment is a type of braces that is invisible, removable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth. No metal, brackets, or wires!


Did you know the type of wire used for braces was invented by NASA? They developed a metal alloy called nickel titanium in 1959!


It takes 43 muscles to frown, and only 17 to smile. Say cheese!


"Tongue thrusting" can contribute to crooked front teeth. If your tongue presses against your teeth when you swallow, ask your orthodontist about options to help with this habit.


When you have braces, it's best to avoid hard foods, sticky foods, chewing ice, and any foods that you bite with your front teeth, like unsliced apples or corn on the cob. Eating these foods might cause damage and lead your treatment to last longer!


Did you know that orthodontic devices date as far back as Ancient Egypt and Greece? Mummies have been found with devices similar to braces, and the Greeks straightened their teeth with metal bands.


Many people have to get braces again because they didn't wear their retainers! Don't make this mistake!


Overbites are very common and can lead to some issues, or difficulty chewing in some cases. The best age to treat one varies, as each child develops differently. Talk to your orthodontist about your options.


While undergoing orthodontic treatments, it is important to keep your braces or other appliances in good condition. Often, certain foods such as nuts, hard taco shells, uncooked carrots and jolly ranchers can cause problems.


Do you know what teeth protrusion is? In this type of bite, the upper teeth extend too far forward or the lower front teeth do not extend far enough forward. This can impact both the appearance and function of the teeth.


Wearing retainers as instructed is the key to maintaining the success of orthodontic treatment! If you have any questions about your retainer or how often you should be wearing it, give us a call today!


I don't want old-fashioned braces. What are my options? Thanks to advances in technology, your treatment options may include ceramic (tooth-colored) braces, lingual braces, which are placed behind the teeth, or clear aligner trays.
