Dentist in West Columbia
Orthodontic treatment is used with adolescent and adult patients to straighten teeth and correct misalignment. Crooked or misaligned teeth can cause difficulty with speech, chewing, and effective brushing. Misalignment can also contribute to tempomandibular joint disorders (TMD), causing stiffness and pain in the jaw joint.
When teeth are properly aligned, they are they easier to keep teeth clean, making them less prone to decay and gum disease. Proper alignment can ease or prevent symptoms of TMD and correct issues with speech and chewing. By completing orthodontic treatment, you can improve both the look and health of your smile.
We offer Invisalign™ orthodontic treatment to help with straightening and aligning your teeth. Invisalign™ utilizes a set of custom fitted clear aligners to straighten your teeth without the use of traditional wire braces. Clear aligners provide added convenience for eating, brushing and flossing. The aligners are comfortable and easy to wear, and almost undetectable by others.
Treatment begins with a consultation with our doctor. Once determined that you are a candidate for Invisalign™, a model of your teeth is created on the computer to provide a step-by-step customized plan. Each set of aligners is worn for approximately two weeks. Each aligner gently shifts your teeth into their final position. The amount of time and number of aligners worn varies depending upon your treatment plan.
Choosing Invisalign™ offers a convenient alternative to traditional metal brackets and wires. It also decreases your chances of getting tooth decay and plaque buildup during orthodontic treatment because you will be able to brush and floss better with a removable device.
