If you would like to know how to treat crooked teeth, then you have come to the right blog. Today, our orthodontist, Dr. Laura Rothe, is happy to discuss the treatments that can help align the smile and boost the oral health. If you are interested in any of these treatments, please feel free to call our office and schedule an appointment. We’re happy to see if it’s the right treatment for you! The treatments available include:
-Retainer: Retainers can help by repositioning mildly out-of-place teeth or to help with overcrowding issues. That are also used to keep the teeth in place once they are aligned. Retainers are typically made out of plastic or acrylic and a metal wire.
-Aligner: Aligners are made of a clear, smooth plastic and they cover the entire arch of teeth. They are molded a certain way that adds pressure to the smile and gently shifts the teeth into place. These appliances are virtually invisible and are removable.
-Braces: There are many different types of braces available, and each one is made of metal brackets and wires. The brackets are secured to the front surfaces of the teeth and are connected with the wires. They apply pressure to the teeth after each adjustment appointment and gently shift them into place.
