Straighten Your Teeth Today!
If you have teeth that are crooked or crowded, or if there are gaps in your smile, you may wish to consider orthodontic treatment. People who have straight smiles are often more confident and are happier with the way they look. Orthodontic treatment can result in a major self-esteem boost!
Sometimes people whose teeth are not properly aligned have difficulty speaking clearly and chewing. Orthodontic treatment can correct these problems.
Orthodontic treatment is necessary not just to improve the patient's appearance, but straighter teeth often lead to a higher level of oral health. Teeth that are crowded are more difficult to clean properly, leading to plaque retention and decay. Teeth that are not in the correct position can lead to uneven wear on the teeth and extra stress on the jaw and the joints in the jaw.
Invisalign Clear Braces
More and more people are choosing Invisalign clear braces over traditional metal braces, and for good reason: for many people, Invisalign is just as effective, but does not come with the inconveniences of traditional braces.
Invisalign aligners are made of clear, smooth plastic and are comfortable to wear. There are no metal brackets or wires to irritate the inside of your mouth.
Patients wear the aligners for the majority of the day, but take them out to eat, to drink beverages other than water, and to brush and floss. The fact that they are removable makes them an attractive option.
By far the biggest advantage of using the Invisalign system is that the aligners are not noticeable to others. Most people will have no idea you are in the process of straightening your teeth! The fact that Invisalign trays are virtually invisible leads many working professionals to choose this system for orthodontic treatment. See our Invisalign page at http://www.heritagecreekdental.com/
For teenagers who need to straighten their teeth, Invisalign Teen is an excellent option. Teenagers often prefer Invisalign treatment because it means not wearing metal braces, especially for prom, graduation, and other important events.
