A Healthy Smile is a Happy Smile
You know how important your teeth are. You are faithful about flossing every day and brushing after every meal. You see your dental hygienist and visit the dentist’s office when you should. You eat the right kind of foods as well, such as kiwi, to protect your teeth from decay. No matter how well you take care of oral hygiene, orthodontic issues can still get in the way. If you are dealing with spacing problems, an overbite, or an underbite, an orthodontist can help.
Learn About Your Treatment Options
When you hear the word orthodontist, you think braces. There have been many advances in the field, providing you with more options. You don’t have to go the route of traditional braces with metal brackets and wires. You can consider Invisalign. Invisalign allows you to wear aligners that are clear at least 22 hours a day. They are custom-made for you and will shift your teeth into the proper position over time. The treatment time and cost is similar to traditional methods. Many patients prefer the clear aligners because they are removable and no one notices them while you are wearing them.
