The Value Of Modern-Day Orthodontics

A THOUSAND YEARS AGO, ancient Greeks began experimenting with cat guts and base metals in an attempt to improve smiles! Though approaches to straightening teeth (and thankfully, materials) have dramatically changed since then, the goal has remained the same—help each of our valued patients achieve a gorgeous, healthy smile!

Fortunately, cat guts have been replaced with sanitary materials, and you can rest assured that the job of shaping your new smile is in the hands of a gifted, experienced orthodontist like Dr. Middleberg or Dr. Gemmi.

Orthodontic treatment today offers solutions suitable for every lifestyle and budget. Children, teens, adults and seniors all over the world are taking advantage of the many orthodontic options available. Modern innovations have led to invisible braces, lingual braces (or behind-the-teeth braces), clear aligners, and computer software that allows orthodontists to predict patients’ post-treatment smiles. Young patients are even having some fun with their orthodontic treatments and customizing their experience by changing the color of their braces during treatment!

Orthodontists like Dr. Gemmi & Dr. Middleberg are passionate about what they do, and they’re devoted to creating beautiful smiles through more than just teeth alignment. We give special consideration to form and function too—taking into account all of your facial features as we determine the best individual treatment for you.

So—what are you waiting for? Studies show that 78 percent of mothers who wore braces as a child consider that gift to be one of the best investments their parents made for them! In fact, it’s very rare for an orthodontic patient to ever regret having their teeth straightened after their treatment is complete.

Our primary goal is to give you a smile you’re eager to show off! If you think it may be time for you or your child to smile confidently, don’t hesitate to contact us. We’d love to talk to you about your many options!
