Teeth Straightening Options

Bloomfield Hills, MI

A smile is a natural facial expression that makes you look confident, attractive, and sociable. However, it is difficult to smile if you have crooked teeth. There are several teeth straightening options in our clinic that will enable you to have that beautiful smile to boost your confidence. Apart from affecting your smile, gaps in between the teeth can cause other complications such as;

  • Rapid tooth decay due to plaque accumulation
  • Severe jaw pain due to improper teeth alignment
  • Increased risk of contracting periodontal diseases

Our certified orthodontist will help you to choose the best treatment option for straightening your teeth.

Some of the Techniques Used

1. Metal Braces

Metal Braces

We still use this age-old technique to straighten crooked teeth simply because it is affordable and readily available. The braces straighten your teeth over time, and the only disadvantage is that they are visible. However, they are perfect for people who have busy schedules and do not have the time to keep visiting the dentist.

2. Lingual Braces

Unlike the regular braces, these are placed behind the teeth. They are ideal if you don’t like the stares and questions that come with regular braces. However, they take a more extended period to straighten the teeth, and they are quite uncomfortable especially if they rub against the tongue.

3. Invisible aligners

This method involves the use of plastic aligners that are replaced every two weeks. The plastic makes them almost invisible, and they are removable hence easy to clean. They are perfect for adults whose jobs revolve around a lot of verbal communication such as motivational speakers and politicians. The aligners will be hardly noticeable even when you are addressing a large crowd.

Bottom line

Having crooked teeth should not stop you from enjoying your life. The various teeth straightening options available in our clinic will enable you to smile once again.
