Did you know that an orthodontist specializes in jaw and tooth alignment? After going to dental school an orthodontist, like Dr. Cameron Jolley, attends additional schooling to become certified in orthodontia. So, all orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists. Straight teeth are often seen as a cosmetic fix, but there are many medical problems that can be solved with orthodontic treatment as well. This process is very complex, and it is best to have a specialist make changes to your jaw and facial bones for the following reasons.

Reason 1: Orthodontists Can See What We Cannot

With the help of x-rays and technology, an orthodontist uses their experience and trai...

Happy Thanksgiving from Jolley Orthodontics!

Treatment for All Ages

The American Association of Orthodontists recommend that kids see an orthodontic specialist, like Dr. Jolley, at age seven for an exam. This age is suggested because it is a good time to see if early treatment is needed. If it...

Maintaining good oral hygiene during orthodontic treatment is important for many reasons. If you do not keep your teeth clean during orthodontic treatment, it is possible for your treatment time to be delayed and white spots to form on your teeth. Jolley Orthodontics does offer whitening options after treatment, but we would like to prevent the spots from appearing first.

Brushing & Flossing with Braces

Brushing and flossing keeps your teeth and gums clean by removing plaque daily. Dr. Jolley recommends brushing for at least two minutes after every meal and flossing at least once per day. Make sure large pieces of food are cleaned out of your braces and remember to clean all parts of y...

It makes sense that the month most associated with candy would also be National Orthodontic Health Month, doesn’t it? With all those sweet treats that kiddos (and okay, parents too) just can’t resist, it’s the perfect time for some reminders about oral health and the benefits of orthodontic treatments for people of all ages.

It’s important to remember that in addition to regular dental checkups, orthodontics should be an ongoing part of your child’s dental health. Orthodontists specialize in aligning the jaws and moving teeth into proper alignment – which may sound scary, but is usually involves a pretty easy treatment plan that will result in the beautifu...

Are you concerned about mouth injuries from your braces while participating in a physical activity? Many sports involve contact with other people, the ball, or other equipment. With braces, it is important that you protect your smile from the possibility of any injuries because the opportunity to injure your mouth is greater with the appliances.

Wearing a Mouthguard

Dr. Cameron Jolley recommends that everyone who is in braces wear a mouthguard during physical activities that involve the possibility of contact with other people or objects. A mouthguard will greatly reduce any impact that you could have if anything was to hit your mouth. It will also protect the braces, the gums, the che...
