Structural Orthodontic Treatment
Orthodontic treatment undoubtedly delivers stunning aesthetic results. Our patients regularly report that they feel more confident and outgoing showing off their straight and seamless smiles. However, this is not where the benefits of orthodontic care end; well-designed orthodontic treatment will also improve the way that your smile functions and ages.
Because Invisalign aligners are used to move your natural teeth into better positions, our team is able to treat crossbites, underbites, and overbites with transparent Invisalign aligners. This type of treatment helps to protect your teeth from attrition (or dental enamel deterioration), so that your teeth stay healthier, longer. Orthodontic treatment can also refine how your molars fit together when you bite and chew. You’ll find that this type of treatment also alleviates temporomandibular joint stress and strain, and improves symptoms of TMJ disorder.
Before we begin orthodontic treatment, our team will make sure that your individual teeth, as well as your gums, are healthy. If we do need to treat any infected teeth or gums, we will likely recommend that this is completed prior to starting Invisalign. Because your Invisalign aligners are designed to fit over your unique smile, we need to complete any restorations and crowns before we make your aligners.
