Orthodontic Dentistry in Gilbert, AZ
Some people have naturally crooked or misaligned teeth; often, people have an overbite or underbite. Sometimes early trauma to the teeth or jaw can cause difficulty chewing or affect speech, and overcrowding can cause pain and gum issues. These issues can also negatively impact your confidence and self-esteem.
Benefits of Braces
Orthodontic treatment or braces can correct these issues and brighten your smile. Braces can straighten your teeth, align your bite, eliminate overcrowding in the mouth, and best of all, give you a more attractive smile.
Conversely, when these issues go untreated, they can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and chewing or speech problems. They can even result in the eventual loss of one or more teeth and abnormal wear to the enamel.
Braces are not just a cosmetic treatment; healthy, correctly aligned teeth are important to your health and wellbeing. But a beautiful smile is another great benefit to braces.
Types of Braces
We offer both traditional metal braces and Invisalign. Both are great options and we will thoroughly evaluate your situation to determine which is best for you.
Metal braces are glued to your teeth and cannot be removed except by your dentist. These are better for those not disciplined enough to be sure to keep them in at least 22 hours a day. Metal braces may also be necessary for correcting a misaligned bite or molars that need to be rotated, as well as more serious issues. They now come in an enamel color to blend better with your teeth, or are available in several colors if you want to make a bold statement. Metal braces require monthly dentist visits for check-ups and adjustments.
Invisalign braces are clear and removable and should be worn 22 to 24 hours a day. Aligner trays must be changed every 2 weeks and visits are required every 4 to 6 weeks. Invisalign braces are effective for simple issues like crooked teeth or crowding, but cannot be used in more serious instances where there are bite issues or the teeth need to be rotated.
