Have you been wondering if your smile could be a little bit straighter? Dental misalignment is a common concern for patients of all ages, but some think orthodontic correction is only available for adolescents. In fact, it is quite regular for adults to experience issues with tooth spacing as the years go by, and seeking treatment can offer both functional and cosmetic benefits. For grown-up patients with professional obligations, Invisalign clear aligners provide a discreet solution for straightening your teeth without impeding upon your appearance.
Your Fort Worth, Tx orthodontist provides an alternative to traditional metal bracket-and-wire braces that helps you achieve the smile you desire. Clear aligners are made from a translucent material that helps avoid any feelings of embarrassment associated with a more conspicuous appliance. By presenting teeth that are easier to clean, orthodontic correction provides a healthier mouth in addition to beautifying your grin! (more…)
Does the idea of seeking orthodontic treatment for your dental misalignment make you feel uneasy? The results of corrective work are appealing to most, but some people hesitate at the idea of wearing a conspicuous appliance throughout the actual treatment process. You may think bright metallic braces appear unprofessional or draw unwanted attention to a smile you may not be proud of in the first place. For this reason, straightening your teeth with a more discreet solution can provide desired results while minimizing their appearance in your mouth.
Your Fort Worth, TX orthodontist is proud to provide an alternative to traditional bracket-and-wire braces with Invisalign clear aligners. With their translucent appearance, clear aligners provide comfort through your correction period by being difficult to see. They gradually move your teeth into a straighter position while offering other benefits not available with wire braces. Invisalign allows you to more easily maintain oral hygiene as they are removable when brushing and flossing. Removing your aligners prevents decay-causing debris from sticking to your appliance at mealtime as well! (more…)
When your teeth are not properly spaced, this can be more than just a cosmetic problem with your appearance. Dental misalignment contributes to oral health problems when not addressed in a timely manner. This means that exploring your options for orthodontic care can provide multiple benefits in the same treatment. For patients whose teeth crowd, the overlapping of crooked teeth can make their surfaces much more difficult to properly clean. By straightening crowding teeth, you can reduce the risk of tooth decay and gum disease brought upon by poor oral hygiene. At your Fort Worth, TX orthodontist’s office, we provide treatment to correct your improper bite and allow you to more easily remove bacteria that threaten your oral health. (more…)
Successful orthodontic treatment for the spacing of your teeth can take multiple months and sometimes years. This means that any interruption in your treatment schedule can greatly increase the time to completion if progress is reversed. While maintaining patience is important throughout this process, report any emergencies with your orthodontic appliance at once. Common emergencies include consistent pain, loose wires, or physical damage to your alignment device. By addressing these problems, your Fort Worth, TX orthodontist can help you relieve discomfort and prevent them from impacting your progress. When your emergency is handled promptly, you will remain confident gaining your newly straightened smile!
When you think about fixing problems with the spacing of your teeth, you may focus on how much nicer their straighter position appears. Did you know that orthodontic alignment maintains the beauty of your smile by helping you prevent tooth decay as well? By pulling your teeth into a more desirable position, we allow you to more easily access each surface for proper brushing and flossing. This gives long-lasting oral health benefits by protecting your enamel and preventing its erosion from bacterial buildup. When teeth overlap and crowd, they become hard to reach and cavities may form as plaque builds. By straightening your teeth, you can fight cavity development and increase the beauty of your smile in multiple ways!
At your Fort Worth, TX orthodontist’s office, we offer multiple treatments to correct dental misalignment and support the health of your smile. We can evaluate the severity of your malocclusion and recommend a customized treatment plan.

If your teenager is developing issues with the poor spacing of their teeth, modern orthodontic techniques can help! While certain kids undergo treatment for misalignment earlier, adolescence is a primary time for preventing problems from becoming worse.

Fortunately, alternatives to traditional metal braces allow your child to receive treatment in a more discreet manner. Your Ft Worth, TX orthodontist offers removable Invisalign clear aligners that minimize their appearance.

When you begin exploring all of your options for orthodontic treatment, you will discover that the right solution can have minimal impact on your daily life. Modern technology allows you to correct problems with the spacing of your teeth in a discreet manner. This means that patients who previously felt hesitant to move forward with unsightly appliances can receive the same benefits of a straighter smile! Your Fort Worth, TX orthodontist offers an alternative to traditional bracket-and-wire braces through Invisalign clear aligner treatment. By being difficult to see, but easy to remove, this solution helps patients feel comfortable about their appearance during treatment. As you move through each aligner in your treatment system, your teeth shift gradually into a proper position to give you a more attractive smile.

The use of tooth-colored brackets allows you to blend the look of braces with your natural teeth to minimize the alteration to your smile.
Issues with the alignment of your teeth are not simply cosmetic concerns. While teeth that have poor spacing can appear rather unsightly, their misalignment also leads to oral health problems such as tooth decay. For this reason, you should make yourself aware of the potential harms of malocclusion and services that provide for its correction. Seeking orthodontic treatment can help you preserve your oral health while dramatically improving your appearance at the same time! When your teeth crowd together too closely or overlap at odd angles, they become far more difficult to properly clean. You may not be able to fit your dental floss or even reach all surfaces of the tooth with your brush. This can lead to cavity formation as plaques build in areas you are unable to clean. By bringing your teeth into alignment, you gain access to more easily cleaning each member of your smile! This means you are less likely to develop signs of decay in the future.
