Is Orthodontic Treatment Right for You?

If your teeth are healthy, but your smile could be straighter, braces restore not only the aesthetics of your smile but support healthier teeth overall. The following dental conditions are common among individuals who seek orthodontic treatment:

  • Crowding
  • Over or underbite
  • Gaps 
  • Misshapen teeth

Misaligned jaws can affect more than your appearance. Irregular chewing often leads to joint pain and can even damage your teeth and gums. Others have reported impaired speech and even sleep apnea in some cases. Corrective orthodontic treatment can leave you with a smile that is not only stronger, but healthier as well.

Orthodontic Options

Traditional metal bracket braces are still considered the most reliable remedy for dental issues such as overcrowding and jaw misalignment. Braces allow your orthodontist more control to shift teeth as needed during appointments. While metal braces may not be the most aesthetically pleasing option, the results are dependable.

Ceramic braces provide a less noticeable option by using brackets that resemble the natural color of your teeth, which allows them to blend in with your smile. They offer the same benefits and results as traditional braces in cases of mild to moderate misalignment.

Invisalign® clear braces offer an even more discreet option, one that you can remove before daily hygiene routines and meals. With this treatment, you will not have to abstain from eating certain foods as you would with traditional braces.

Invisalign Teen is ideal for patients with jaws that are still developing. This variation of Invisalign, unlike traditional braces, is designed to adapt to evolving oral structures while allowing space for growing teeth.
