Whether you have a child in need of braces or are looking for a solution to your own crooked grin, Healthy Smiles Dental Care of Jewell Lake has a few options for straightening teeth and correcting misaligned bites. Even older patients can take advantage of orthodontic care so that they can enjoy healthier, more attractive smiles. Please call us today if you would like to set up an orthodontic consultation to see if braces or Invisalign could be right for you.
Of course, you can’t mention the word “orthodontics” without immediately thinking about braces. Metal brackets and wires can be used to correct even the most complex of orthodontic issues. It’s important to remember that wearing braces isn’t just about enhancing the appearance of the teeth (although it is certainly a benefit); it also ensures that the teeth are properly aligned so that they can function properly. This also makes it easier to clean them and prevent issues such as cavities and gum disease. It’s possible for adults to wear braces, although the treatment might take longer since the jaw is already fully developed.
Are you looking for an orthodontic solution that won’t stand out? As long as your particular case isn’t too complex, you may be eligible for Invisalign, which involves a series of clear plastic trays. Each tray is worn for about two weeks at a time for at least 20 to 22 hours every day. You’ll find that most people won’t even be able to tell you have anything inside your mouth, and you’ll be able to enjoy the convenience of being able to remove your aligner during meals and your regular oral hygiene routine.
