The newly released report says the advantages orthodontics offer go well beyond straightening teeth. A beautiful smile can significantly improve a person’s confidence – which can lead to a happier, more successful life – and improve overall oral health. Sean Liu Orthodontics is owned by Dr. Sean Liu, DDS, MS, PhD, MSD, and Diplomate, American Board of Orthodontics. Together with the clinic’s founder, Dr. Terry Wallen, a pioneer in orthodontics, the team at Sean Liu Orthodontics offers state-of-the-art care for families and residents throughout the SeaTac region.

Dr. Liu says he and his team share the belief their clinic’s positive, family-oriented environment and advanced approaches in orthodontics are what’s made Sean Liu Orthodontics one of the region’s most in-demand dental practices. In the report recently released by the clinic, doctors discuss the benefits of orthodontics for people of any age that have overcrowded teeth, an incorrect bite, or other more complex alignment abnormalities.
The report notes orthodontic treatment is often part of a comprehensive dental health care plan. Overcrowded teeth increase the chances that food debris, plaque, and tartare can accumulate in areas between the teeth that are difficult to see and reach. This buildup can lead to decay, cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss.
An incorrect bite can also lead to bigger problems down the line, including difficulty chewing and speaking, and abnormal tooth wear, gum recession, and facial asymmetry.
The team at Sean Liu Orthodontics will consult with patients to develop a targeted, customized treatment plan that can involve traditional braces, removable clear aligners, or a two-phase treatment to deliver a beautiful, perfectly aligned smile.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends children get their first check-up with an orthodontist by age seven. At that age, if a crossbite, crowding, excessive overbite or other problems are discovered, interventions can be implemented early enough to guide the growth of the jaw and incoming permanent teeth.
The report reminds audiences orthodontic treatment is not age-dependent, noting that with advances in orthodontics making treatments more comfortable and less noticeable, one in four of today’s orthodontics patients are adults.
With the release of their report, the doctors and staff at Sean Liu Orthodontics are providing residents in Auburn and throughout the Seattle-Tacoma region with the information they need to make informed oral health decisions.
