Correct Crooked Teeth for Beauty & Functionality
Teeth straightening applies to cosmetic concerns, as well as worries about dental health.
With metal and clear braces, my practice provides you with options. You don’t have to live with crooked teeth that make you feel self-conscious. Instead, I oversee your entire course of treatment from the initial consultation to placement to adjustment.
Each of my patients is unique, and I take this into account during treatment. I work with you throughout the process of adjusting your braces as your teeth move into alignment. Then, when it comes time to take them off, it’s a cause of celebration for us all.
In addition to giving you a more attractive smile, braces are good for your teeth and gums. Teeth that are crooked make it harder to clean, thus increasing the possibility of tooth decay and gum disease. Teeth that don’t fit together properly affect your bite and impact chewing and speaking.
Why Choose Metal Braces?
Metal braces are the affordable option for crowded teeth treatment. However, these traditional braces have been much improved, so they’re less noticeable and more comfortable now than ever before. Metal works well for those on a budget and for children or teenagers who might be rough on their braces as durable metal bears abuse better than other options.
Traditional braces have the power to move teeth into place effectively. Therefore, using them for cases of more severe overcrowding is a wise treatment option. Metal braces cannot be removed, so patients must clean around them and avoid eating certain types of food that get stuck in the brackets. I work with my patients, especially children and teens, so they know how to clean their teeth and braces and the importance of doing so.
The Case for Clear Aligners
For patients who prefer an alternative to metal braces, my practice offers ClearCorrect. These are aligners made of clear plastic that you take off to eat and clean your teeth. Many of my teen and adult patients prefer the discretion of this form of tooth correction for the aligners are invisible. They also offer comfort and easy care.
