Smilen Dental Group, as part of monitoring facial growth and development of children, has been engaged in providing Orthodontic treatment since its inception. Dr. Meslin who founded our office, formerly known as Meslin Pediatric and Family Dentistry was able to fulfill their orthodontic needs. And now, Dr. Aneel Bherwani, “Dr. B”, our Orthodontist, continues to provide Orthodontic treatment not only to children but also to adults. 

Benefits that go Beyond Straighter Teeth

The benefits of orthodontic treatment often go beyond the physical changes of an improved bite and straighter teeth; it’s also a great way to improve a person’s overall self-image. Even more important is the need to prevent any potential health problems associated with the teeth or jaw. Crooked teeth or jaw problems may contribute to improper cleaning of teeth, leading to tooth decay and, possibly, gum disease or total tooth loss. Excessive strain on gum tissue and the bone that supports the teeth can affect the jaw joints leading to problems such as headaches or facial and neck pain.

Orthodontic Evaluations

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children get an orthodontic evaluation by age 7.  Though orthodontic treatment can be done at any age, timely treatment ensures maximum dental health. 

With all of the recent advancements in orthodontics, wearing braces has never been easier. Various fixed and removable appliances and treatments are now available, to help move teeth, retrain muscles and control habits such as thumb sucking and tongue thrusting.

Our office prides itself in providing the highest quality care, using the latest technology for the benefit of our patients.
