Consider this the start of a beautiful, healthy smile

How do you feel when you catch your reflection in the mirror? Does it bring a smile to your face? When taking a selfie, do you open wide for a big, beautiful grin? Or, clamp your mouth shut to conceal your teeth? At Kristo Orthodontics, we believe catching sight of your smile should make your smile even bigger. In fact, seeing a happy, healthy grin on your face is the reason we do what we do. So let’s get started.

The beauty of braces

  • Beautiful, confident smiles

    Aside from changing your teeth, braces can change your life. They close gaps, improve spacing, and properly align your bite to create a beautiful, aesthetically pleasing smile and facial profile. Great smiles boost self-confidence, self-esteem, and help you make the right first impression, both personally and professionally.

  • Preventative maintenance

    The benefits of straightening a smile with braces extend beyond appearance. Crooked, overcrowded teeth are difficult to properly brush and floss, which increases the buildup of bacteria and plaque. Dental braces and properly aligned teeth are easier to care for, and the improved oral hygiene prevents gum disease, tooth decay, and cavities.

  • Improved oral health

    Dental braces play an important role in improving the overall health of your jaws and bones. Improper tooth and bite alignment places dangerous pressure on the teeth, jawbone, tissues, and nerves in your mouth—ultimately leading to a lifetime of pain, headaches, ongoing jaw issues, tooth wear, and chipping. By correcting the bite and alignment of your teeth, braces eliminate undue stress.

Time for some straight talk

If the timing is right to begin your active orthodontic treatment, we’ll schedule your first appointment during your initial consultation. This visit will generally last about an hour, allowing your doctor to place your braces and new orthodontic appliances, review diet, hygiene, and any special care instructions. You’ll continue to visit our office every eight to ten weeks so we can monitor and refine your smile progression. Our convenient office hours and locations make orthodontic appointments easy to fit into your schedule – and our team is always focused on making your visits fun!
