Let us help you determine whether your smile could benefit from orthodontic treatment.
While it might seem obvious to some people that they need to get braces, it isn’t always obvious to others. Sure, a crooked smile can certainly be improved by orthodontic treatment; however, did you also know that a straighter smile can improve your oral health, too? Our Williamsburg, VA, dentists Dr. Ricky Rubin, Dr. Brett Dunnill and Dr. Omar Hasham are here to explain.
Teeth that are crowded, twisted or misaligned in some way are more difficult to brush and remove plaque, which puts them at an increased risk for developing cavities. By getting orthodontic treatment, our Williamsburg, VA, general dentist can get you a straighter smile that’s also less likely to develop decay.
How do you know whether or not braces are right for you?
Orthodontic treatment can be great for patients of all ages, from children to adults. In fact, you are never too old to get braces. Your smile could benefit from braces if you are dealing with:
- Crooked or twisted teeth
- Gaps between teeth
- Cross bites
- Open bites
There are also a variety of orthodontic treatments that we offer to provide you with fast, effective results no matter whether you are dealing with small issues or more serious problems. Of course, traditional metal braces are the most effective option for fixing more serious and complicated issues, including complex tooth movements or cases in which we need to realign the jaws.
Of course, if traditional braces are the most effective approach for handling your dental problems but you want a subtler option then ask us about tooth-colored traditional braces, which work the same way as metal braces but are less obvious when you smile.
Teens and adults who might be concerned about wearing braces can also turn to nearly invisible systems such as Invisalign, which use a custom-made set of clear, plastic aligners that fit over teeth to gradually shift teeth into the ideal position. These aligners are completely removable so that you can take them off prior to eating or brushing your teeth.
