A Straight Smile Is a Healthy Smile
While straight teeth enhance your smile’s appearance, it’s also important to note that they can make you healthier, too! When you have misaligned teeth, you’re more prone to developing periodontal disease and cavities because crooked teeth aren’t as easy to clean as straight teeth. Having a straight smile also helps decrease your risk for tooth injury and tooth wear, since your teeth are in their proper positions and aren’t protruding or rubbing against each other.
Orthodontics for Kids
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children get an orthodontic evaluation no later than age seven. While orthodontic treatment can be done at any age, early treatment is often the most effective way to help your child maintain great oral health into adulthood.
Traditional metal braces are a common solution for correcting moderate to severe bite and tooth alignment issues. In addition to their broad range of treatable cases, they’re typically the more cost-effective form of orthodontics.
Thanks to advancements in modern dentistry, braces are now more comfortable than ever before. With the intricate bracket and wire system of braces, you can achieve a healthier, straighter smile that will boost your self-confidence and improve your oral health.
Clear Aligner Therapy
Aligner therapy utilizes a series of clear, plastic aligners to reposition your teeth. The aligners use gentle force to straighten teeth in two-week increments before swapping them out for the next set in the series. This orthodontic method is very discreet, and most people won’t even notice you’re wearing them. You can also take them out when you eat, so you don’t have to give up your favorite foods while you straighten your teeth. Dr. Urvi Ravindran is a certified Invisalign® and ClearCorrect® provider.
