Orthodontics is a dental specialty that involves correcting teeth that are improperly positioned. Silver Spring Dental Center is proud to offer the best and most up-to-date orthodontic services for our patients.

Our dentists treat malocclusions which are often called bad bites. This is when a client bites down and their teeth do not line up correctly. We also treat crooked teeth or teeth that simply do not line up correctly. We also focus on the development of the facial bones and jaw.

While orthodontic treatment is often thought to be a cosmetic solution, it is actually very important to fix malocclusion problems for a healthy mouth. Teeth that are crooked or misaligned are the perfect place for food and bacteria to hide. Misaligned teeth can also be hard to clean, leading to cavities and other problems down the line. Orthodontic correction can also improve eating, digestion, and even a client’s speech in some cases. The goal in treating problem teeth is to ensure a healthy mouth in the future.

How can these problems be fixed? Invisalign clear retainers are an effective, modern, and efficient treatment option! Our doctors offer FREE Invisalign consultations!
