Straighten Your Teeth
The goal of orthodontic treatment is the same for children, teenagers or adults – to straighten teeth so they look better and work better.
Braces and clear aligners put gentle pressure on your teeth to move them into the correct position over a period of months or years.
Orthodontic treatment can not only improve the appearance of teeth, but can also help to prevent dental problems such as gum disease, tooth decay, and abnormal wear and tear on teeth.
Additionally, having properly aligned teeth can improve speech, chewing ability, and overall oral health.
Traditional braces, made of either metal or ceramic, have been used for decades to straighten teeth.
In recent years, advances in orthodontic treatment have resulted in braces that are low-profile, more comfortable and easier to care for.
How Braces Straighten Teeth
Braces apply continuous pressure to the teeth over a period of time, slowly moving them into their new, corrected positions.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
With Invisalign clear aligners, your smile is gradually straightened using a series of individually customized, clear plastic aligners.
Invisalign clear aligners offer a convenience factor – they are removable for when you'd prefer no one know that you are straightening your teeth.
Similar in appearance to custom whitening trays, they should be easy to insert. You can even remove them to eat, drink, brush and floss!
