This is why our orthodontists are dedicated to making sure your smile shines.
Improving a Smile
In a perfect world, everyone’s smile would be flawless, but there are many reasons why some smiles are not ideal. Most of these issues are due to an orthodontic issue like the following:
- Misaligned teeth
- Misaligned jaw
- Jaw disorders
- Crowded teeth
- Underbites or overbites
- Missing teeth
There are many reasons why these issues may affect a person, and they are not always preventable. For example, some people suffer from orthodontic issues, like misaligned teeth, because it was passed down. Other people might have these problems because of the following:
- Excessive thumb sucking
- An accident caused tooth loss
- Excess teeth in the mouth, though, this is not common
Your orthodontist should be able to take care of these issues for you with braces or invisalign. Traditional braces are smaller than what most people might imagine, which makes them less obtrusive. Invisalign is made up of two invisible removable aligners, which is why they are popular amongst customers.
