Ryan R. Blair, DMD - Portland Orthodontist

At Powell Dental, PC, we understand that straighter teeth are not only more aesthetically pleasing but are generally healthier than those that are crowded or misaligned. Gaps in the smile can attract leftover food particles that generate decay and issues with your bite can lead to grinding, discomfort, and even painful TMJ symptoms. An aligned bite provides proper function and comfort, while a uniform smile exposes more surface area for your toothbrush to reach, leading to cleaner teeth.

Our Portland Orthodontist, Dr. Ryan Blair, is committed to providing top-quality orthodontic care for children and adults who can benefit from a straighter smile.
