Orthodontics

STRAIGHT, HEALTHY TEETH AND A CONFIDENT SMILE !!

Orthodontic treatment is a way of straightening or moving teeth, to improve the appearance of the teeth and how they work. It can also help to look after the long-term health of your teeth, gums and jaw joints, by spreading the biting pressure over all your teeth.

Once considered only for teens, orthodontic treatments are now being used by an increasing number of adults who want to correct their misaligned teeth. And with innovations like Invisalign®, it is easier than ever to straighten crooked teeth.

Why should you consider orthodontics? Crowded or crooked teeth are hard to clean, making them more vulnerable to decay. Overbites and underbites can cause discomfort and jaw pain. Gaps and crowding can also diminish the appearance of your smile.

How Orthodontic Treatments Work

A visit with an orthodontist includes a thorough check of the teeth, muscles and jaws to determine the best course of action. Braces are the most recognized orthodontic treatment and are traditionally made of metal, but can also be made from clear or tooth-colored materials, offering you an aesthetically pleasing method for correcting the alignment of your teeth.

Invisalign

As an alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign creates clear, custom fitted removable trays to progressively straighten, align and improve your smile.

There are other advantages to Invisalign beyond that aesthetic nature of the treatment.

  • The removable trays allow for easier cleaning and oral hygiene practices including normal brushing and flossing regimens.
  • Trays can be removed when eating.
  • Irritation from metal braces is avoided.
  • Properly aligned teeth aid in speech, chewing, gum and bone health.
