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 Central Lakes 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

    Braces don’t just change your teeth, they change your life! Sure, they close gaps, improve spacing, and even fix oral problems that cause pain. But the real upside is that they make you feel better about you, boosting confidence, raising self-esteem, and making you more comfortable in personal and professional situations.

  • Preventative maintenance

    Here’s another benefit of braces besides your mental health: Your dental health. Once properly aligns, your teeth are easier to brush and floss, helping eliminate bacteria, plaque, gum disease, tooth decay and cavities. And who doesn’t want to do that?

  • Improved oral health

    Are you stressing out? You might be, and not even realize it. Improper tooth and bite alignment put unnecessary pressure on the teeth, jawbone, tissues, and nerves in your mouth, which is why you may be experiencing pain, ongoing jaw issues, unexplained headaches, and even tooth wear and chipping. Forget that! Braces are like your own personal superhero, arriving just in time to save the day and improve your overall oral health for a lifetime.

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!
