When to see an orthodontist?

Posted on January 4, 2018

At Silver Smiles Orthodontics, we strive to provide the highest quality orthodontic care while maintaining a fun, friendly, and relaxed office environment. Our doctors work hard to design specialized treatments for every patient we see, and we’re proud to serve the communities of Atlanta and Snellville, GA with expert orthodontic care. For many people, though, it can be hard to know when they should come into our office.

A Myriad of Signals

There are a few answers to this, but the simplest is that you should come and see us anytime you have questions about the alignment of your teeth or the health and function of your bite. While this is sometimes obvious in cases where there’s a clear problem in the alignment of teeth or the jaws don’t meet correctly, other times, it may be more subtle – but just as serious. Conditions like mouth breathing, clenching or grinding of teeth, or an inability to comfortably close your lips are all signs that you may need treatment, and even things as subtle as your jaws frequently shifting position can indicate a problem.


Your smile’s waited long enough.

No one knows smiles like the orthodontists at Silver Smiles. If you’re ready to get a smile that makes you want to smile, you’ve found the right solution at Silver Smiles Orthodontics.

If you’re in need of general dental work like cavity repair, teeth cleaning, caps, crowns or veneers, give us a call and we’ll be happy to refer you to an outstanding general dentist in your area.
