Treating The Way Your Teeth Relate to One Another

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on treating the way your teeth relate to one another, namely the position and alignment of your upper and lower dental arches. Through orthodontics in Royal Oak, Michigan, our dental team is able to improve both the functionality and appearance of your smile. We offer many clear aligners to help straighten your smile. We will work closely together to determine which is best for the state of your smile, taking all of your needs, goals, and desires into account.

There are many advantages to having a straighter smile. Not only does your self-confidence increase, but your ability to eat, speak, and move your jaw properly also improves. While orthodontics is especially useful for adolescents, we are happy to provide orthodontic treatment for patients of all ages, adults too! It is never too late to have the straighter, more beautiful smile you have always dreamed of.

What is Invisalign?
Invisalign is a brand name treatment that straightens your teeth to give you healthy gums and a beautiful smile. You could also get traditional braces (metal brackets and wires) that would accomplish the same thing. Invisalign straightens your teeth using sets of clear trays, called aligners, to incrementally move your teeth into the correct positions. Each set of aligners gradually moves the teeth closer and closer to where they should be.

Why is Invisalign the best treatment to straighten my teeth?
Invisalign straightens your teeth using clear aligner trays. You don’t need to have brackets and wires like traditional metal mouth braces. If you’re going out for the night or you’ve got an important meeting, you can leave your trays out for a little while and you’ll be fine! Nobody needs to know that you’re going through treatment! You get straight teeth on your schedule, whenever you’re ready. For more examples of Invisalign treatment, visit the Invisalign website.

Most adult patients undergo treatment because they had traditional braces as teenagers, but over time their teeth relapsed and became crooked and crowded. As adults, most patients want the most cosmetic solution for straightening their teeth, and the best option is Invisalign treatment. As you can see (or more accurately NOT see) the aligner trays are virtually invisible and make treatment cosmetic and unnoticeable.
