Everyone deserves the right to have a straight and beautiful smile. Orthodontic dentistry treatments are used to straighten teeth or to correct the alignment of teeth, which if left untreated can lead to speaking or eating problems. It’s common for adults to seek these treatments in pursuit of a better smile. Orthodontic treatments provide a more pleasing appearance that help boost a person’s self-confidence and self-image.Orthodontic treatments are designed to provide relief to a person who’s living with crooked teeth, excessive gaps and spacing between teeth, misaligned teeth, or bite problems. These conditions can be the result of many different factors. Teeth can grow abnormally due to genetics or premature loss of baby teeth. Teeth that are broken during childhood can grow incorrectly and cause alignment problems also. These scenarios can lead to overbites or prevent permanent teeth from growing normally. Treatments by Housh Family Dentistry can correctly align and straighten teeth to produce a straighter and healthier smile.Two popular types of corrections to straighten and align teeth are traditional metal braces or Invisalign clear aligners. These treatments provide excellent ways to gently pull teeth together during the length of the treatment. Metal braces use a series of metal brackets and wires that are attached to the tooth exterior. The braces are adjusted during each phase of the straightening treatment to accurately straighten and align teeth.Invisalign Aligners The Invisalign clear aligners are a modern way to straighten teeth without altering your appearance during treatment. The use of 3D imaging technology allows Housh Family Dentistry to display the potential results that can be achieved when the treatment is completed. A series of clear aligning trays are designed and worn directly over the teeth for a time period determined by our dentist. The clear aligners are easily exchanged during each phase of the treatment. Two big advantages to Invisalign is: 1) there are no eating or drinking restrictions and 2) the clear aligning trays are virtually invisible when worn- making Invisalign a popular choice for teens and adults that seek a more discreet way to straighten their teeth.
