Orthodontic Aligners (Straightening)
There are many benefits to straight teeth other than just the cosmetics of a great smile. Patients who suffer from malocclusion (bad bite) can contribute to tooth decay, have long terms affects in jaw pain, bone loss and periodontal disease, abfractions and wear to teeth. We offer two options for straightening your teeth without the need of braces! In fact, when you are in treatment no one will even know! Our treatment options use a series of clear, removable aligners (trays/ retainers) to gradually reposition your teeth. We have two options available for you:
- Simpli 5: If you have minor changes that need to be made Simpli 5 may be the best option for you. Simpli 5 is an express aligner system that corrects imperfections you dislike in 5-6 months. Simpli 5 is ideal for the front 4-6 teeth that are visible when you smile. It is also a great option if you are only interested in correcting one arch.
- Invisalign: For more complex treatment needs, we offer Invisalign. Invisalign allows us to achieve the same results as traditional braces without the inconveniences associated with braces. Average treatment time is 6 – 18 months.
If interested in one of these straightening methods please contact our office to set up a consult, and we will determine which treatment option is best for you.
