Why Should You See a Wilkes Barre Orthodontist

Of course the majority of people go to the orthodontist to straighten their smile improving their look. Unbeknownst to them, straightening your teeth also has many important medical benefits. Not having your teeth straightened can lead to an increased risk of:

  • Some cancers as well as the Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Disease of the Gums
  • Complications which occur in pregnancy.
  • Loss of Teeth
  • Erectile Dysfunction

It’s far less difficult to maintain your teeth when they’re straight. The toothbrush is able to get at the full front and back surface of the teeth without missing much. The diseases listed above are diseases that can happen if you’re not careful with your teeth.

How Can Orthodontists Help Make Your Smile Better?

As technology and science improves, our team is following up with the latest innovations. However, much like in everything, there’s time tested methods to help improve your smile.


Braces are the most familiar tooth straightening aid. Over time, the braces stretch out the teeth to avoid crowding of teeth. In the beginning of having the braces and in the period after adjustments, the patient may experience some pain. However, when thinking about the end result in mind, it’s a necessary sacrifice.

If you’re looking for your child to get braces we recommend the best time to get them would be around the ages of 7-15. If you’re an adult though, getting braces is also an option for straighter teeth later in life.

Invisalign Clear Aligners

Do you need your teeth straightened? As great as braces are for getting the job done, one of the major downfalls is how visible they are. Fortunately, there’s an option that allows you to not see the tooth aligners. Invisalign is the pioneering brand behind clear teeth alignment. Casey Dental is an Invisalign approved member.
