You looked in the mirror this morning but you didn’t smile at yourself. You know that if you did, you would have to face the fact that your teeth still aren’t what you want them to be. You think back to your childhood and wish you had worn your retainer after braces. All that adjusting and here your teeth are, looking a lot like they did before you ever had those years of orthodontic work.
Your teen is facing the same fate. Her smile may not be as crooked as yours, but she does have an overbite and a gap. She hates the idea of going to prom with metal-mouth.
What can you do? Is there a way for you both to achieve the confidence of a straight smile?
We listened to our patients’ and their needs and decided the best way to help them find the beauty in their smiles was by offering Invisalign clear braces.
Health and Beauty
Crowded, crooked teeth are not only bad for your self-image, they can be bad for your health as well.
Poorly aligned teeth can:
- Make chewing your food difficult and contribute to digestive problems
- Lead to TMJ problems such as headaches and jaw pain
- Be hard to clean, increasing your risk for plaque build up, bleeding gums, and periodontal disease
