with patients of all ages in his dental office, but has a great knowledge of orthodontics and how to diagnose, treat and prevent bite and jaw irregularities. This is vitally important in young children and teenagers to save future years filled with dental problems. Otherwise some problems cannot be fixed at their later stages. Health is a key factor in orthodontics as well as functionality and an aesthetic appearance.

, Dr. Matt (as he likes to be called) says, "Many things can be affected by an improper bite, including speech, facial symmetry and even the ability to chew. If not fixed early enough, more serious dental and physical conditions can occur. This is why I have focused on orthodontics with young people, so they don't grow up facing real issues." When the bite is irregular for some time, it is known to not only wear down the enamel because of the uneven pressure on the teeth, but can also wear out other expensive dental work. Jaw problems and periodontal disease may also result.
Matt Comfort DDS has training in the specialized techniques needed to treat uneven teeth, overbites, overcrowding and underbites. These techniques are not solely for children and teens. Adults can take advantage of orthodontics to correct problems with the teeth and jaw as well in many cases. Improving appearance goes a long way in boosting someone's confidence, no matter what age they are.
Teens particularly have an advantage in obtaining orthodontic work when it is warranted. According to some studies, when young people have a lovely smile they feel more popular among their peers. School kids won't get teased as much and can be less anxious when they feel confident of their smile and have no irregularities in their teeth. Of the many

has been a top pick for delivering orthodontic treatment for kids in the area.
Since young people can be quite self-conscious regarding their appearance, the preferred way to align teeth is the Invisalign(r) aligners. These clear aligners are an aesthetic alternative to metal braces. They are removable so patients can brush and floss normally. This reduces the chances of tooth decay, plaque retention and periodontal disease. Dr.
uses this superior technology in treating teens that come for orthodontics work.
Parents can bring their children to Dr. Matt for an orthodontic screening at the young age of eight to prepare for any necessary work later. Those who need work sooner than their teens can receive it and will find treatment time is faster and results can even be better.
