Orthodontic Treatment Might Be Right For You
Would you love to straighten your teeth but are hesitant due to your age? Long gone are the days when orthodontic treatment was only for children and teenagers. We have helped many of our adult patients improve their appearance and their oral health with the use of orthodontic treatment. Read on to learn more about the treatments we offer and how orthodontics can improve your oral health.
Improve Oral Health
Not only does orthodontic treatment improve the appearance of the teeth, but it can also help prevent issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. When there are problems in the mouth, such as overcrowding, it is easy for food and bacteria to become trapped between the teeth. Even patients who have amazing brushing and flossing routines may find it difficult to reach certain areas between the teeth. While we can fix the decay, if the placement of the teeth is never changed, patients will continue to experience problems with recurring decay. This can lead to not only tooth loss and the need for a tooth replacement, but the expense over time will be considerable. Investing in orthodontic treatment will help eliminate the need for treatment as well as the recurring costs.
Orthodontic Treatment We Offer
Based on your needs and oral health, we offer two orthodontic treatments. The most common is Invisalign®. Patients wear clear aligners to slowly transition the teeth into the desired placement. This is a popular treatment because the trays are removable, allowing patients to continue to eat their favorite foods with no restrictions. Fastbraces is a new technology that can speed up the movement of the teeth. If you are looking to fix the placement of your teeth in a hurry, this may be the treatment for you.
