Crooked teeth can make even the most confident person self-conscious. However, the problems caused by misalignment can manifest physically, as well. Uneven tooth and jaw alignment can interfere with chewing and digestion, and even speech in severe cases. Crooked teeth that do not fit together correctly are more difficult to keep clean and are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay or periodontal disease. Working with an experienced orthodontist in Orlando will give you the opportunity to achieve your perfect smile and keep you healthy. Orthodontics can help solve the following issues:
- Teeth crowding
- Teeth gaps
Our caring team at Serene Dental can give you the best version of your smile. We will assist with all your needs, whether you want traditional braces or prefer something more discreet.
Often, metal braces are used for children whose adult teeth have grown in out of alignment. In most cases, you’ll need to wear braces for 2-4 years to see the complete effect. Metal braces are the most effective way to straighten teeth, but some people struggle with food getting caught in their teeth. It’s also more difficult to brush well, so braces can lead to cavities if you don’t brush properly. Luckily, there are other options if metal braces don’t appeal to you.
An alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign uses invisible retainers to help straighten your teeth. It’s a great option, especially for adults who prefer not to wear traditional metal braces. Invisalign retainers are removable, which makes it easier to eat and brush your teeth. Those who opt for Invisalign usually wear a retainer for 2-3 weeks before returning to our office to get fit for a new one.
