Why You Should Consider Orthodontic Treatment

Straight Teeth Are Healthy Teeth

When your teeth are correctly aligned, it’s easier to keep them clean with regular flossing and brushing. This can even prevent other oral issues, including some that can affect your overall health.

A Straight Smile Builds Confidence & Self-Esteem

When your teeth are correctly aligned by Dr. Desai, it’s easier to keep them clean by flossing and brushing.

Successfully completed orthodontic treatment with Elm Tree Orthodontics can help boost your self-confidence, give you a better quality of life, and allow you to smile freely for what might be the first time ever.

Untreated Oral Issues Will Get Worse

Delaying or refusing orthodontic treatment when Dr. Desai recommends it can create long-term health issues that may wind up costing you more in the end.

Our Hamden and North Haven teams understands that teens, kids and adults will all have different dental needs, requiring different kinds of care and attention.

Dr. Desai will work diligently with you to ensure you receive the most appropriate treatment in the most inviting environment.
