For most patients, straight teeth means a beautiful smile. But, did you know that a properly aligned bite is also healthier? Overlapped, crooked, or rotated teeth can create a challenge when cleaning your smile each day. Food and bacterial plaque slowly accumulate in tiny spaces that your toothbrush and floss can’t reach. The acidic toxins in plaque and tartar can cause cavities and inflamed or infected gums. Helping even a couple straggling teeth can leave you with a healthier mouth.
Straight teeth aren’t just for kids! Adults often make the most dedicated orthodontic patients. That’s why it’s never too late to discuss your options for a bright, straight smile. If you’re unsure of traditional braces, don’t worry. Invisible methods can work extremely well, and Drs. Nimri and Zingalis can help you explore the possibilities.
Clear plastic trays or aligners can work just as well as braces, and often in less time and without the look of metal. With sophisticated 3D software, this technology brings a new smile within reach for many adults and mature teens.
Though methods to straighten teeth began in ancient times, modern techniques provide outstanding results for all ages. Ideal function and pleasing aesthetics can be brought together for a lifetime of benefits.
