Thomas Dowling, DDS provides orthodontic care to straighten misaligned teeth. Misaligned teeth can negatively affect your oral health and your self-esteem. We invite you to contact our office today to learn more about our straightening treatments in Olney and  Prince Frederick, Maryland, and to schedule an appointment with our experienced orthodontist.

Teeth that are straight and properly aligned help you to bite, chew, and speak, and contribute greatly to having healthy teeth and gums. A beautiful, confidence-boosting smile is a pleasant side effect. Straightening your teeth will help your teeth to function better over the course of your lifetime, avoiding many dental problems and the subsequent treatments.

Properly positioned teeth are also a great asset if you require a restorative treatment. It can be difficult to restore or replace teeth when the remaining teeth are misaligned. Correctly positioned teeth allow the space needed for treatment, and contribute to the overall function and aesthetics of your mouth.

If left untreated, your misaligned teeth will be at greater risk for tooth decay, cavities, gum disease, and related problems. In severe cases, you may experience bone loss or TMJ dysfunctions. You may also experience difficulty in chewing and digestion, with abnormal wear on your tooth surfaces, and with excessive stress on gum tissue and supporting bone structures.

Please call us today to learn more about straightening misaligned teeth and schedule a consultation with our orthodontist.
