The benefits of a healthy, beautiful smile can never be overestimated! Perfectly straight teeth bring pleasure to nearly every aspect of life, enhancing the way we feel inside and out. That’s why more than nine million people seek orthodontic treatment every year, including well over a million adults. No matter your age, our friendly orthodontist at

Stamford has an option to fit your lifestyle and budget.

Here’s a handy checklist of the top reasons for scheduling a visit:

  • All in the family: If there’s a history of orthodontic problems in your family, the likelihood exists that you’ll be developing similar issues, too.
  • Talking points: Have you developed a lisp or problems pronouncing some words? A problem with your bite may be the culprit.
  • Lost in space: Unevenly spaced teeth are harder to keep clean, which could lead to cavities and gum disease.
  • Crowdsourcing: Teeth that are too crowded are also hard to clean with your toothbrush and dental floss, putting you at risk of periodontal disease and tooth decay.
  • Reality bites: When your bite is misaligned — such as when your upper and lower teeth overlap, or there’s a gap between them, or they don’t fit properly when your mouth is closed — this causes excessive wear on the teeth and jaw pain.
  • Food fight: Are you having trouble chewing or biting into food? Those are telltale signs of a latent orthodontic condition.
  • Jaw flaws: If you’re noticing pain or discomfort along the jawline, it may be what’s known as TMJ, or temporomandibular joint, disorder.
  • Pass the buck: Front teeth that protrude can lead to problems with your bite, as well as affecting your appearance.

As you can see from this list, achieving a smile that radiates self-confidence is just part of what we do at Stamford. Our state-of-the-art treatments produce a mouthful of health benefits. There’s never been a better time to take advantage of today’s orthodontics, so please contact us for an appointment!
