People with crooked or crowded teeth are said to have a“bad bite," even if teeth are straight. The bite may not fit together properly which can cause issues now and in the future.
Orthodontic treatment involves selective pressure continuously applied in order to gain controlled movement of teeth to improve your overall oral health, smile, speech, and chewing ability. A newer technology called “Invisalign” allows tooth movement without the placement of brackets and wires improving patient quality of life. The movement is achieved with "aligners" made of a clear plastic material which you wear for weeks at a time until the desired movement is achieved. At this point you will be given another set of clear aligners to wear for the following period until the desired tooth movement and esthetics are achieved.
