Patients throughout Burlington, NC appreciate that when visiting Mack Orthodontics they receive comprehensive care. We understand that orthodontics is essential to improving oral health both now and in the future. While straight teeth are beautiful, they are also more functional and less likely to become infected. It is easy for food, bacteria and plaque to become trapped in between crooked teeth. This makes it difficult to clean them and remove all of the plaque that can lead to cavities, gum disease, and bad breath. By simply straightening teeth, these health risks are reduced.

Our orthodontic services revolve around straightening teeth and aligning the bite. When people have an overbite, underbite, or crossbite, it can be difficult to eat and speak clearly in addition to negatively impacting the appearance. A jaw that is out of alignment can also start to hurt and create face, jaw, and neck pain as a result. When a patient is undergoing an orthodontic treatment, we focus on aligning the bite at the same time. This is often done by using rubber bands that when strung from a top bracket to a lower one, hold the jaw in the correct position and train it to remain in that place. We can also use headgear or other treatments to further align the bite. By treating this issue while straightening teeth, patients receive comprehensive orthodontic care.

Modern dental technology has given patients multiple options for how to straighten teeth and improve a smile. In the past, this typically involved wearing clunky metal braces. Now, metal brackets and wires are much smaller and take up less space, allowing more of the natural tooth to show through. They are also more effective than they used to be so that teeth can be straightened faster. Additionally, things like aligners are making it possible to straighten teeth without anyone being able to see that the treatment is taking place. This has made orthodontic services more accessible for adults that thought they would be unable to straighten their teeth after getting out of their teenage years.

At Mack Orthodontics, we believe that it is important to select the right type of orthodontics treatment that fits your lifestyle. Since it typically takes around two years to straighten teeth and align a jaw, it is important to select a treatment that is conducive to your lifestyle and will work with your schedule. Dr. Mack meets with each patient to discuss these concerns prior to making a recommendation. By taking the time to listen and understand each persons’ goals and challenges, it becomes easier to straighten teeth, and our patients are pleased with both the results and their overall experience. If you live in the 27215 area, call 336-227-5594 and schedule your appointment today.
