Orthodontics in Aurora, CO
If you have been living with crooked teeth, you might find that you are not showing your smile as often as you would if you liked the way it looked. But feeling self-conscious about your smile is only part of the problem with crooked or misaligned teeth.
Teeth that are not straight are more difficult to take care of. Overlapped and overcrowded teeth can be more difficult to floss and brush, which can make them more susceptible to decay and gum disease. Teeth that do not meet properly when you bite down can also cause problems—and can even become painful. An investment in orthodontics now can save you a lot of trouble down the road.
In addition to traditional metal braces, we offer other options for patients of all ages, including Invisalign invisible braces. At Uptown Comprehensive Dentistry and Prosthodontics, we offer orthodontic treatment for patients of all ages. Let Dr. John Chen turn your smile into one you can’t wait to show the world!
The Orthodontic Treatment That Is Fast, Effective, and Invisible
If the thought of metal brackets and wires has turned you off to the idea of braces, you might be pleased to know that Invisalign provides an option for teeth straightening that is virtually invisible. Someone can be sitting across the table from you—and they will more than likely be unable to tell you are wearing Invisalign invisible braces.
If you want to straighten your teeth, but you are hesitant about committing to traditional braces, Invisalign is worth considering. Invisalign works to straighten teeth that are crowded or protruding, and they can address gaps and extra spaces in your smile as well. Invisalign can also treat an overbite.
The Invisalign process works through a series of removable aligners. Every few weeks, you’ll get a new pair of aligners. These nearly invisible aligners gently move the teeth into their proper position.
Because the aligners are removable, there are no eating restrictions with Invisalign. In addition, they can be removed for a few hours for a special event. Taking care of your teeth is easy with Invisalign because you can remove them for brushing and flossing. The only thing you’ll need to do is to commit to wearing the aligners for at least 22 hours per day throughout the course of your treatment.
