Patients often ask us what orthodontic treatment is best to straighten their teeth or help with the alignment of their bite. Our answer: it depends. The good news is that we offer patients several orthodontic options to choose from, and we help them decide which one is best. Read more to find out about these options.
What if we told you that you could have straighter teeth in just six months? While traditional orthodontic braces can take a couple of years to shift crooked teeth in position, the Six Month Smiles® system can accomplish that in just half a year.
Have you been putting off getting braces because you don’t want to have a mouth full of metal? Would you or your teen like straighter teeth, but don’t know what other options are out there? There is one “clear” solution that will give you your desired smile conveniently and effectively. Click here to learn more about it.
If you would like straighter teeth but are hesitant of metal braces, consider Invisalign as an alternative. Invisalign uses clear aligners that are changed out on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to help with dental issues such as overcrowding, overbites, crossbites, and gaps between teeth.
Besides the desire for a more aesthetically pleasing smile, your dental health is also affected by issues such as gapped and crowded teeth. For example, gapped teeth can leave your gums vulnerable to periodontal disease and crowded teeth make it difficult to floss between teeth, leading to plaque buildup.
