Dr. Kayne provides adult orthodontic care to provide you with a beautiful, healthy smile and a functionally improved bite.
Discover How Great Your Smile Could Be
A beautiful, healthy smile has a tremendous effect on all aspects of life; When you look your best, you feel your best. Many patients state that orthodontic treatment has been the best investment they could have made, not only for their dental health but for their heightened self-confidence and enjoyment of life.
Orthodontics and Oral Health
Although the importance of a nice smile should never be underestimated, the orthodontic specialist has another equally significant treatment goal to improve the health of your teeth and gums.
Crowded teeth are hard to clean and maintain and in time may contribute to tooth decay, gum disease and eventual tooth loss. Bad bites can also result in abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, difficulty in chewing and damage to supporting bone and gum tissue.
When left untreated, many orthodontic problems become worse. Treatment by a specialist to correct the original problem is often less costly than the additional dental care required to treat more serious problems that can develop in later years.
The first step is a thorough examination and consultation with Dr. Kayne. After careful evaluation, Dr. Kayne will discuss your options for treatment, which may include braces and gum surgery. He will also discuss the duration of care (which is case dependent). Please do not hesitate to ask any questions you may have.
If you choose to proceed with orthodontic care, impressions, x-rays and photographs will be taken of your bite and you will be on your way to straighter, healthier teeth.
