Enjoy Straighter Teeth and a More Beautiful Smile With Our Orthodontist in Baltimore
If you have an irregular bite or issues with the positions of your teeth, you may be a candidate for orthodontics. An orthodontist is a dental specialist dedicated to treating issues involving the jaw and teeth. After evaluating your particular bite irregularity, our orthodontist in Baltimore can recommend the most appropriate treatment to correct the position of your teeth for a healthier and more beautiful smile.
While braces are typically used to straighten the teeth and improve the aesthetics of the smile, orthodontic treatment may also be necessary when problems with the teeth and jaw cause discomfort, earaches, headaches, interfere with chewing and speaking, or put you at risk for tooth decay and gum disease. For example, braces can be used to correct overbites, underbites, crossbites, open bites, jaw misalignment, and gaping or buck teeth.
Orthodontic treatment has advanced considerably in recent years, and patients now have more types of braces to choose from than ever before, including clear, ceramic, and invisible. Not only are today’s treatment options more aesthetically pleasing, but they also tend to be more comfortable and work faster than older methods. Our orthodontist will help you choose the correct orthodontic appliance for your needs, budget, and lifestyle. Call today to find out more about our orthodontic treatment options.
Orthodontic treatment is very common among older children and teens and can set your child on a path for a lifetime of good oral health. When choosing an orthodontic specialist and treatment options, it is important to make sure that your child does not feel singled out or ashamed. Our orthodontist understands the unique dental needs of younger patients and can help you choose from a range of innovative braces options. While some newer treatment options are more expensive than traditional metal versions, they often work faster, tend to be more comfortable, and can even allow your child to express his or her personality with colorful wires and brackets. If you have a dental discount plan or have private or employer-sponsored dental insurance, we recommend that you contact your provider to find out which treatment options are covered under your plan. Call today to arrange an orthodontic consultation for your child.
While orthodontic treatment is most common among children and teenagers, an increasing number of adults are using orthodontic appliances to improve the health and appearance of their smile or to alleviate chronic jaw pain.

Our orthodontic specialist and staff will work with you and your insurer or dental plan to help you find the best treatment option for your issue, appearance preferences, and budget.

Cost can also vary based on the severity of the dental issue, the length of treatment, and the type of treatment chosen.
