Straighten Your Smile

Orthodontic problems can impact kids, teens, and adults — in fact, it’s rare that anyone’s born with perfect teeth. Malocclusion, or a “bad bite,” can cause problems with chewing, oral hygiene, speaking — not to mention looks.

A bad bite can be genetic or caused by thumb sucking, dental disease, poor dental hygiene, accidents, birth defects, or other medical conditions.

Dr. C pairs cutting-edge technology with the skill of moving teeth. This helps Southington Orthodontics successfully treat many dental issues, like:

  • Gaps between your teeth
  • Crowded teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Protruding teeth
  • Impacted teeth

Metal Braces & Other Options

Most patients we treat at Southington Orthodontics choose traditional metal braces to straighten their teeth.

Metal braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment in Southington, but you have other options, too.

After your first free consultation exam, Dr. C will talk to you about which treatment would be right for you based on your unique needs and smile goals.

Fixed Appliances Vs. Removable Appliances

At Southington Orthodontics, we believe you should be fully educated when it comes to your treatment. The first step to correcting an orthodontic problem is learning about it.

When Dr. C prescribes a removable appliance like clear aligners, you’ll wear it most of the day but you can take the trays out of your mouth.

Besides the obvious differences, Southington Orthodontics uses clear aligners to treat mild to moderate orthodontic problems. Dr. C generally uses fixed appliances for comprehensive and serious treatment.
