Orthodontics

The need for braces to straighten teeth can come at any age. From 10 to 70 years of age, Dr. Riggs stresses that straight teeth are not for “esthetics only”! Straighter teeth allow for better hygiene and function so that you’ll have teeth for a life-time. Minor corrections may be handled at our office but more complicated full orthodontic needs will be referred to one of our local specialists.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT ANY DENTAL FILLING, CROWN, PROSTHETIC ETC…IS A WEARABLE ITEM. NOTHING IS PERMANENT NOR LASTS FOREVER. DR RIGGS WILL ATTEMPT TO MAINTAIN ANY RESTORATION FOR AS LONG AS PHYSICALLY POSSIBLE.
