Are you living with a crooked smile that’s causing you embarrassment and a lack of confidence? You may or may not know that crooked teeth can also contribute to tooth decay and gum disease. Thankfully, at Summit Family Dental Care, we offer an excellent alternative treatment for straightening teeth so you can have the smile of your dreams in a fraction of the time, and without the embarrassing metal mouth. Invisalign® is a fantastic orthodontic solution for both teens and adults alike.
Invisalign® is the next step in the evolution of orthodontics. Instead of permanent, metal braces, Invisalign® helps Warsaw and Geneseo residents straighten their teeth with a series of clear, removable aligning trays.
Each tray is worn for about two weeks, and only a few visits to Dr. Gburek are necessary to make sure that the smooth, gradual straightening is on course. The aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces, can be removed for eating/drinking/flossing/brushing, and the average course of treatment is less than a year.
Invisalign® is the clear choice for anyone who wants straighter teeth without the braces.
When you think of orthodontics, most people think it’s mostly a cosmetic treatment to make your smile straighter and more attractive. While this is often one of the primary motivators for patients seeking orthodontic treatment, what many patients don’t realize is the health benefits of having straight teeth, and the potential problems of leaving them crooked.
When your teeth are crooked in any way, the gums don’t fit as nicely around the teeth as they should. This can leave room for bacteria to get in there and cause inflammation, which can lead to gingivitis and gum disease. Crooked teeth are also more difficult to keep clean, which can cause a buildup of plaque and tartar, and cause tooth decay.
Invisalign® is a great cosmetic solution for those seeking a straighter smile, and can also help improve your oral health overall.
If you have any questions about Invisalign® or would like to schedule a consultation with us, please give us a call or request an appointment online today! Dr. Gburek, Dr. Barone, Dr. Moore, and Dr. Hetrick look forward to smiling with you at your next visit to Summit Family Dental Care!
