Did you know, there are more adults turning to orthodontic treatment than ever before? That is because of the many different options to choose from when it comes to your orthodontic treatment in the workplace. Here at Joseph P. Goodson DMD, MS in Austin, Texas, we take pride in giving you the quality care you deserve and are happy to talk to you about the different orthodontic choices for your smile.

Orthodontic treatment is designed to provide proper alignment of your teeth and jaw for correcting bad bites. Some of these bad bites include under bites, overbites, open bites, cross bites, teeth spacing, and other bite adjustments. Orthodontic treatment can correct these unique bites by aligning your smile into the ideal position. Traditional braces use many metal wires and brackets attached to your teeth as they move your smile into place. There are also ceramic options, which is popular among those wanting to be discreet.

There are other orthodontic treatments if you are not looking for the metals and brackets attached to your teeth. These include clear aligners that snap on over your teeth. Clear aligners are a popular form of treatment since they don’t include any food restrictions and are extremely hard to be seen by others. Most people may not even realize you are wearing them.

Having healthy bite alignments are important for having a healthy smile. That is why Dr. Joseph P. Goodson is happy to talk with you during a consultation to see which orthodontic treatment is right for your unique smile. Call us today at 512-258-6683 to set up an appointment. Our professional staff is always happy to guide your smile into ideal alignment.
