You Will Love Your Stress-Free Clear Aligner Treatment

Fixing crooked teeth has more than a cosmetic appeal. It improves your oral health, too. When teeth are gapped or overlapped, it gives bacteria more places to hide. Plus, many patients find relief from their TMJ disorder after completing treatment.

We use Invisalign to straighten your teeth. It’s a comprehensive solution to orthodontic problems like gapped, overlapping, or crooked teeth. It can also help with crossbites, underbites, or overbites. To determine if it’s right for you, your dentist will take digital X-rays and scans of your mouth.

If your alignment issue is cosmetic, you may benefit from veneers instead. This cosmetic treatment is sometimes called “instant orthodontics” for its ability to hide slightly crooked teeth, small gaps, and similar issues. Some issues respond better to treatment with traditional metal braces. We can provide those if they are the better choice for your smile.

If you move forward with Invisalign, you’ll find it offers these benefits:

  • Easy to Wear – Your aligners will fit snugly over your teeth. You won’t have to worry about irritating metal wires and brackets in your mouth.
  • Removable – Take off your aligners to brush your teeth, floss, or enjoy a meal. You won’t have to worry about using special floss or getting food in your brackets.
  • Comfortable Checkups – You’ll visit our office every six weeks or so for progress checkups. Fortunately, no uncomfortable wire adjustments are needed!
  • Fast Results – Braces can take years to complete. Invisalign takes only 12 to 18 months to finish.
  • Discreet – Your aligners will be invisible to the naked eye! No one but you and your dentist need to know you are wearing them.

Help Prevent Orthodontic Problems Before They Start

It’s sometimes possible to avoid orthodontic problems before they start by using a device called a palatal expander for your child. An expander creates more room in young children’s mouths by widening their upper or lower jaw. It can:

  • Ensure there is enough space for their teeth to come in properly
  • Correct the way their upper and lower teeth fit together
  • Help open their nasal passages so they breathe more easily
  • Lessen the need for future orthodontic treatment
