Studies have shown that a healthy and attractive smile can boost your self-confidence, improve your personal and professional life, and enhance your overall well-being. Straight teeth can also make it easier for you to keep your teeth clean, healthy, and looking great!
Many people, especially adults 15 years and older, don’t pursue the straighter smile they desire because they think braces take two to three years and only use metal brackets and wires. Guess what? They don't have to!
Dr. Stauffer offers both traditional and short term orthodontic solutions for his patients.
Depending on treatment goals, Dr. Stauffer will guide you to the best solution for your individual needs and desires.
Comprehensive orthodontics can be for either adults or adolescents. All teeth are positioned as close as possible to their ideal locations, allowing both upper and lower teeth to interact in the most favorable way. Bite discrepancies are generally addressed in orthodontic care.
Short term orthodontic care is generally a treatment for adults. Special attention is given to the most efficient alignment of the front teeth, with less concern given to correct bite discrepancies.
