Your smile is your greeting to the world. It’s also a window to an important part of your dental health — the alignment of your teeth.

Not everyone  is born with beautiful teeth. Crooked teeth or spaces between the teeth may be a source of embarrassment or self-consciousness. Improperly aligned teeth and jaws — called a “malocclusion” — also can lead to tooth decay and a host of sometimes painful dental disorders.

The good news is that orthodontic treatment can correct malocclusions and help you achieve a healthy, beautiful smile that’s good for life®.  See an AAO-member orthodontist to find out how you can have the smile of your dreams. Click on the the Find an Orthodontist button above to locate AAO members near you.
