Having a beautiful smile you are proud of means so much in both professional social settings! We want you to feel confident about your appearance, and teeth that are crooked or overlap may be diminishing your smile and causing you to hide it.
At Pure Dental Studio, Dr. Le has completed extensive training that allows him to offer a comprehensive range of orthodontic services, including traditional braces along with Invisalign. We make it convenient for you to get all the dental services you need in one place with the team you trust.
Why Should I Straighten My Teeth?
Besides the boost of confidence a beautiful smile provides, there are also other reasons related to your dental health for straightening your teeth.
Crooked teeth are more difficult to brush and floss properly, which can result in a greater chance that you might develop gum disease, tooth decay, or cavities. A misaligned bite may also cause issues for your jaw joint that can result in headaches, popping or clicking of the jaw, or tenderness when biting or chewing.
One of the best ways to straighten your teeth and correct your bite is with traditional braces. We apply metal or clear brackets to your teeth, and a wire provides the pressure needed to move them into correct alignment gradually.
Adjustments are needed every few weeks to ensure that your teeth are moving in the right direction.
Busy adults and teens can benefit from the discretion that Invisalign provides by using clear plastic aligners instead of braces to straighten teeth. You wear aligners for 22 hours each day, removing them for eating, brushing, and flossing. You will change to a new set of aligners every two weeks, and this can often be done at home. You’ll have checkups with Dr. Le periodically to ensure that your treatment is progressing as planned.
Whether you have traditional orthodontics or Invisalign, you will need to wear retainers after you complete your treatment. Retainers can be worn at night while you sleep, and they keep your teeth from drifting back to their previous position.
Which Type of Orthodontic Treatment Is Right for Me?
Dr. Le can help you determine which type of orthodontic treatment will best suit your needs during a commitment-free consultation, where you can learn more about what’s possible for your smile.
Many dental insurance plans include an orthodontic benefit that you can apply toward traditional braces or Invisalign that will help reduce the cost of your treatment. We are also happy to discuss payment plans through CareCredit that can help you fit orthodontic treatment into your budget. Call Pure Dental Studio today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Le.
