Teeth Straightening with Braces and Invisalign

Whether you are young or older, there is never a bad time in your life to invest in the health of your teeth.  As technology advances, there are now more options than ever to give you a visually appealing look while still provided you with the teeth straightening you seek.  Malocclusion, misaligned teeth, is more than a cosmetic issue.  It also affects the function of your bite and the health of your mouth.

A straight smile is not only beautiful, it promotes healthy teeth and gums which is why we are passionate about providing multiple teeth straightening solutions to our patients.

Traditional Braces and Ceramic Braces

As dental technology continues to advance, the option for braces has become extremely viable and more comfortable.  Today's metal brackets are designed smaller with advanced materials for a more efficient, comfortable treatment.  

Ceramic braces, clear brackets, are not only aesthetically pleasing to the eye.  The clear brackets blend with the natural tooth reducing the appearance of the braces while providing the same efficiency in straightening teeth as traditional braces.

Invisalign

Ever since the idea of retainer-like devices for straightening teeth came out, the popularity of them has increased.  Invisalign provides the patient with a virtually invisible teeth-straightening solution.  These aligners are similar to whitening trays, and can often be worn without anyone even noticing them.

One of the great parts of this process is that the aligners are removable, so you can drink, eat, floss, and brush just as you normally would.

The treatment plan is mapped out with your doctor and includes receiving a new aligner every few weeks in order to straighten teeth.  Each aligner is custom fit with digital scans and precision technology for the most accurate treatment possible.

If you have:

  1. Gapped teeth
  2. Underbite
  3. Overbite
  4. Overcrowded
  5. Open bite
  6. Cross bite

or other issues of teeth alignment, orthodontic teeth straightening may be the answer.

Not only will you be left with a beautiful smile, but the overall health of your teeth will increase too.  Contact our office today to schedule a FREE consultation and learn about our Summer Straightening Specials to get your teeth on the straight track.
