Orthodontic treatment delivers so much more than a beautiful smile full of straight teeth. It also ensures that teeth and jaws are in proper alignment, giving you an effective bite and good oral health. It can be hard to keep teeth clean with brushing and flossing when they’re overlapped, rotated or crooked. Those pockets they create can foster the growth of bacteria and plaque that result in bad breath, cavities, inflammation, and gum disease.
No matter your age, it’s never too late to explore orthodontic treatment options for a brighter, straighter smile and better oral health. While many people think teeth straightening is for teenagers -- and it’s true that early intervention may mean easier treatment and better outcomes -- it’s often adults who are the most conscientious patients.
Dr. Salayta reviews each patient’s orthodontic needs to ensure clear aligners are the proper treatment option for best results. Based on cutting-edge 3D software technology, the clear trays made of safe, durable plastic are often known by their brand names, Invisalign and ClearCorrect. Wearing a series of these trays, called aligners, over a specified period of time will gradually move teeth into proper alignment without traditional metal braces and wires.
