How Crooked Teeth Can Affect Your Life

Having crooked teeth isn’t something that just happens, but it can affect your life drastically if not taken care of.

How Crooked Teeth Can Affect You 

  • Periodontal Disease (Gum Disease)
  • Difficulties Chewing
  • Increased Wear

Improved Oral Health

With a disjointed set of teeth, it becomes difficult to maintain proper oral hygiene. It allows for plaque and bacteria to build up, causing tooth decay, bad breath, and gum disease. However, once you have straighter teeth, you’ll be able to more easily and fully brush and floss every corner of your mouth.

We believe every individual deserves a smile they can be proud of. When you schedule an appointment with your cosmetic dentist, they will be able to create a dental treatment plan that will help improve your smile.

  • "I am very pleased with how my appointment went yesterday. Everyone was really friendly. They explained everything to me about the procedure and stayed late to assure I was comfortable with the work I had done. Dr Ryan Buckwalter and his assistants were awesome. I highly recommend them for any dental work. Thank you."

  • "I was having toothache pain in my lower jaw. I called the next day to make an appointment and was given an appointment time for the very next day. I saw Dr. Ryan, who is knowledgeable, caring and has great people skills with his patients. I made another appointment to come back and have the work done."

  • “Dr. Buckwalter and his assistant did a wonderful job with our 8 year old today. While they were busy talking teeth, my 3 year old was enjoying his new lip balm and balloon! Finished up with a treat from Starbucks with our gift card. So glad our kiddos don’t fear the dentist. More like they want to keep stopping in."
