Food Always Getting Stuck In Your Teeth?
Are you tired of looking in the mirror and all you can see are your crooked teeth? Or maybe you have had enough of always needing to carry dental floss around because food is stuck in the gaps between your teeth. Whatever the reason for your frustration with your teeth, the start of a new year is the perfect opportunity to do something special for yourself and inquire about straightening your teeth. Did you know that we offer numerous orthodontic options in our office? Read more to learn which option might be a perfect fit for you!
We are proud to offer a number of options to help our patients get the straight smile they dream of. Each option has its own benefits and can improve your overall oral health and smile.
If you desire straight teeth but are looking for a method that is discreet and low maintenance, this is the option for you. This popular alternative to metal braces uses custom-made, clear aligner trays to slowly shift teeth into the desired position. The aligner trays are removable, allowing you to eat what you enjoy, as there are no food restrictions. Since the trays are clear, they are less noticeable than other orthodontic options.
Traditional metal braces are the orthodontic treatment option that is most popular and well known. This option requires metal brackets to be attached to the surface of the tooth and connected with wires, slowly moving your teeth into the desired position over an average of 18-24 months. Metal braces can be used to adjust even the most severe bite issues.
This option, made out of tooth-colored resin, works identically to the traditional metal braces explained above. Because they blend in easily with the teeth, this is a popular treatment option for teens and adults not looking to bring attention to their mouths.
Regardless of which orthodontic method you choose, the goal of straightening your teeth is what is most important and can be achieved with any of these options. The benefits of straightening your teeth does far more than improve their aesthetics. Prolonged exposure to teeth that are crooked or crowded or severe bite issues can lead to tooth decay, infections, and staining of the teeth.
