Orthodontics in Chesapeake

A healthy, beautiful smile is important to everyone. That's why the dentist and team at Smiles of Chesapeake are proud to offer orthodontic services to our patients. We understand that having straight teeth is not only aesthetically pleasing but can also improve your oral health. Crooked teeth are more difficult to keep clean, which can lead to cavities and gum disease. In addition, misaligned teeth can put extra strain on your jaw, causing pain and stiffness. At Smiles of Chesapeake, we offer a variety of orthodontic options, including traditional braces and clear aligners. 

What is Orthodontics?

Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, prevention, and correction of irregularities of the teeth, jaws, and bite. At Smiles of Chesapeake, our team of skilled orthodontists uses the latest technology and techniques to ensure that patients receive the best possible care.

Malocclusions, or bad bites, can cause many problems, including difficulty chewing, speaking, and even breathing. In severe cases, they can also lead to jaw pain and headaches. Orthodontists use a variety of devices, including braces, retainers, and headgear, to correct these problems.

If you or your child is experiencing problems with your teeth or jaws, we can provide the care you need to achieve a beautiful, functional smile. The goal of orthodontics is to improve the appearance of teeth and how they work. It can also help relieve any pain that is associated with crooked teeth. 

Orthodontic options in Chesapeake.

Dr. Moreno has advanced training in adult orthodontics, has completed hundreds of cases and she is a member of the Mid-America Orthodontics Society.

Today, there are more teeth-straightening options than ever for an adult. If you don’t want unsightly braces, there is Invisalign®, the clear alternative to braces, or ceramic braces. For fast straightening, Dr. Moreno uses self-ligating braces that don’t require rubber bands and can straighten teeth in up to half the time of traditional braces.

Dr. Moreno offers a complimentary consultation for adult orthodontics in which you will review which treatment options will work best for your situation and get any questions answered.

Smiles of Chesapeake customize our treatment plans to meet the unique needs of each patient, and we are committed to helping you achieve a beautiful, healthy smile that you can be proud of/

What are the most common orthodontic procedures?

Smiles of Chesapeake is committed to providing high-quality orthodontic care. We offer a variety of procedures, each customized to the needs of our patients. The most common procedures we perform are braces and Invisalign. 

Braces are traditionally used to correct misaligned teeth.  These have worked well for decades. Dr. Moreno particularly recommends them for adults with more complex teeth straightening and bite issues.

Invisalign is a more recent innovation that can be used for a wide range of orthodontic issues. Invisalign® Clear Aligners mean no metal brackets and the removable aligners (high-grade plastic trays) let you eat what you want and clean your teeth properly.

No matter what your orthodontic needs may be, we are here to help you achieve a healthy and beautiful smile.
