Orthodontics in Colleyville, TX
Advances in dental technology have made it possible to straighten teeth without the hassle and discomfort of traditional metal braces.
When your bite is off, a host of dental problems can crop up. The appearance of your face can be affected, sometimes speech is impaired, and frequent biting of the cheeks or tongue can also be a symptom of misaligned teeth.
When the teeth are moved into alignment through orthodontic procedures, many of these issues are solved.
Dr. Shah at Azure Dental is experienced in using the Invisalign and ClearCorrect systems of orthodontics to get teeth into their correct positions.
While major misalignment may call for traditional braces, minor problems can be addressed with less invasive methods. Invisalign and ClearCorrect systems both use clear aligners to move the teeth into the correct position.
- Six Month Braces (New: a clear bracket and white wire, quick cosmetic orthodontic treatment option)
Unlike traditional braces with brackets and wires, aligners are removable. This means that you do not have diet restrictions while your teeth are being straightened. Teenagers particularly appreciate the fact that they can enjoy their favorite foods while going through treatment!
You can also maintain your oral hygiene more easily with these aligners. Remove them when you brush and floss and put them back in when you are finished.
The clear plastic aligners are barely noticeable while they are being worn. In fact, most people will not be able to tell you are wearing them at all. Treatment usually takes less time than traditional braces also.
When your teeth are in the correct position, you will be given a retainer to keep them in alignment until they settle in place.
If your teeth are out of alignment and you would like a nonintrusive way to get them straightened, contact our office today to schedule a consult with Dr. Shah and find out if your situation would benefit from Invisalign or ClearCorrect orthodontics.
