Straight teeth are the foundation of a terrific smile.
Did you know properly aligned teeth are also healthier?
Overlapped, crooked, or rotated teeth create a daily cleaning challenge. Food and bacterial plaque accumulate slowly in the tiny spaces that your toothbrush and floss can’t reach. Misaligned teeth are more likely to decay, connected to inflammation, and can contribute to periodontal disease, a bacterial infection of your gum tissue. Helping even a couple straggling teeth find their proper place makes your mouth healthier.
Straightening teeth isn’t just for kids! Adults often make the most dedicated orthodontic patients, and it’s never too late to discuss the options for a bright, straight smile. If you’re not sure wires fit your tolerance level, don’t worry. Invisible methods can work extremely well for many cases, and Dr. Chris Hill can help you explore the possibilities.

A straight smile has never been easier to enjoy. Clear plastic trays, known as aligners, can work the magic of braces without the shine of metal. Combined with sophisticated 3D software, this technology brings a new smile within reach for most adults and mature teens.
