The Benefits of Correcting Your Misalignment
Uneven teeth can cause people to feel self-conscious about their appearance, or even go to great lengths to avoid smiling in pictures. Misalignment could begin to hinder your oral health as well. Properly brushing and flossing could become difficult, and as a result, food could become trapped between your teeth for bacteria to consume. This process could eventually increase the risk of bad breath, teeth stains, tooth decay, and even gingivitis and gum disease. The pressure on the jaw joints could also impact your smile’s health, increasing the risk of TMJ disorder and bruxism (teeth grinding), which could not only damage your teeth, but lead to painful headaches and jaw discomfort.
First, let’s talk about braces. Despite being a very effective means of improving smile alignment, many people feel wary of treatment, as they don’t want to alter their appearance for up to two years. However, we have an option that is barely visible. Instead of using metal, we employ ceramic to create the brackets we affix to the front facing sides of your teeth. This means they blend with your teeth seamlessly! We then attach a very thin arch wire with a band to the brackets. Over time, we adjust tension in the wire to reposition the teeth and throughout the process, your orthodontics are barely noticeable.
We also have a completely clear option for addressing minor and major misalignment. With Invisalign®, we create a series of trays from a clear and BPA-free plastic material, which means they will be almost invisible when you wear them. They can also be removed before meals or prior to brushing and flossing your teeth, which helps you avoid many of the inconveniences of other orthodontic treatment options. If you have any questions about our cosmetic treatment options, whether that includes ceramic brackets or clear aligner trays, then contact our team today. We want to help you obtain a straighter smile that not only looks great, but helps protect your oral health too.
