Your teeth aren’t stalactites or stalagmites. They aren’t “spare bones” that stick out of your gums like calcium deposits in a cave. You don’t have to rely on luck to have them line up.

Your teeth are the perfect example of form and function. They are a performance machine, not window dressing for the showroom.

Your mouth is a complex mechanism of precise engineering. Finely-tuned and highly-evolved, it’s like a well-designed car, with elegant lines and power.

Sure, you can restore an old car, but it’s never the same as the one that’s fresh from the factory. Adding new bells and whistles won’t make up for poor maintenance.

If you buy a new car, you wouldn’t bang it around and bounce it off of curbs and walls. You would change the oil and take care of it! Maintenance is always more comfortable and better than trying to fix the damage.

That’s why Orthodontics is where all excellent dentistry starts. Orthodontics is the treatment of irregularities in the teeth (especially of alignment and occlusion) and jaws, including the use of braces or Invisalign.

It means you can finally stop biting your cheeks. You can improve the pronunciation of words, have better chewing, make better sounds when speaking (or even singing). You get improved feedback from hot, cold, and pressure. In some cases, you can taste better and also have a better facial appearance.

It means being highly efficient, aesthetically pleasing, and performance-based.

A perfect smile doesn’t just look good; it means things work in precision order every time.

Now get Invisalign for over 50% off and start down the path to your perfect smile.
