Benefits of Orthodontics

Increased Confidence

An attractive smile increases self-esteem, confidence, and overall appearance. Helping children and adults experience a beautifully straight smile gives them the freedom to share their smile often.

Lifelong Oral Health

Orthodontically corrected teeth lead to better lifelong oral health. Teeth are easier to clean and less prone to chipping and decay, while also reducing the chance of gingivitis and gum disease.

Common Reasons for Orthodontic Care

  • Teeth crowding
  • Jaw misalignment (open bite, overbite, underbite)
  • Missing teeth
  • Spacing issues
  • Protruding front teeth

Orthodontic Treatment Options

Standard Braces

Conventional orthodontic treatment involving standard braces for both children and adults offers the most comprehensive approach to treating more complex issues ranging from crooked teeth to jaw and bite concerns. Dr. Murdock offers expertise throughout the orthodontic journey, leading to a beautifully healthy smile.


Invisalign® creates beautifully straight teeth without braces by using a series of removable, and comfortable aligners – invisible to your friends, family and coworkers. Because the aligners are removable, you can eat and drink what you want while in treatment. Plus, brushing and flossing are much easier. Invisalign® provides a more flexible straight-teeth solution. Dr. Murdock is an Invisalign Diamond Plus Provider and we're proud to help get your smile on the right track.

Invisalign® Teen

Invisalign® Teen helps teenagers experience the confidence boost of a great smile without the restrictions of traditional metal braces. The financial investment for this unique treatment is similar to traditional braces. As a bonus, Invisalign® Teen is covered by many major dental insurance policies.
