What's Healthier About Straighter Teeth?

Misaligned teeth can lead to premature wear, tooth loss, gum disease, and the build-up of bacteria associated with bigger problems, including heart disease. More than seven out of ten American adults have some kind of issue with their bite, such as crowding, spacing, or overbites - your doctor may use the word Malocclusion. (Malocclusion=Abnormal tooth alignment)

At Trailhead Advanced Dentistry, we know the best options to correct your alignment. Schedule an appointment with us in Matthews to know your options and choose the right one for you.

      Orthodontics Are for Adults, Too

      Having orthodontic treatment in childhood is what most people remember when they think of things like braces. Like the rest of the body, the teeth and jaws change rapidly when we're young, so many people take advantage of the formative years to straighten their teeth. But that's not the only option!

      Healthy teeth can be moved at any age, so you've never "missed the boat" for orthodontic treatment. In fact, about one in five of today's orthodontic patients is an adult. Several new technological developments - including tooth-colored ceramic braces, clear aligners, and invisible lingual braces - have made orthodontic appliances less evident, and enhanced the treatment experience for grown-ups. Before treatment, adults are carefully examined for signs of periodontal (gum) disease, which will be brought under control before treatment begins.

      Straight Teeth Are Healthier Teeth

      When your teeth are aligned, the health benefits are clear. With healthier gums, improved hygiene, and less wear and trauma, the choice is easy to make.

      What Types of Orthodontic Appliances are Available?

      When you imagine someone wearing braces, you probably picture small metal brackets bonded to the front of the teeth, with a thin wire running through them. This time-tested style remains very popular — but it's no longer the only option. Clear braces use brackets made of ceramic or plastic which, except for the slim archwire, are hardly visible. Lingual braces are just like traditional metal braces — except they're bonded to the back of your teeth (the tongue side) so that no one can see them.

      We can offer Invisalign clear aligners along with more traditional Orthodontic Appliances. Schedule an appointment so we can help you find the option that works best for your alignment needs!

      How does Invisalign treatment work?

      Invisalign clear aligners use the most advanced technology to give you your best smile yet! Using a series of clear aligners, your treatment can straighten your teeth with 75% more predictability. Plus, your smile is shaped more comfortably than with braces. 

      You will receive a complete digital scan from your doctor. Your doctor will send your scan to Invisalign where they will work together on your case. Give us a call to get scheduled for your consultation and get started on a healthier, straighter smile!
