If you have crooked teeth, then it’s best to consider your options. Crooked teeth not only take the beauty from your smile, but they also promote dental issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. Aligning your teeth can help you in a myriad of ways, so feel free to call our office and schedule an appointment with our orthodontist, Dr. Ora Rosenfeld Canter, to find out which treatment is right for you. The treatments available to help include:

-Retainer: Retainers can help with minor alignment problems, like mildly out-of-place teeth or crowding issues. They are typically made out of a clear plastic or acrylic with a metal wire.

-Aligner: Aligners are made of a clear plastic and they are typically tough to see. They are removable and they shift the teeth by applying pressure. Your orthodontist will mold each aligner to represent the next desired phase of the smile. Your teeth will feel the pressure just by wearing the new aligner.

-Braces: Braces are appliances that contain brackets and wires. The brackets are glued to the front or back surfaces of the teeth and those brackets are connected by the wires. The appliance will apply pressure to the teeth to move them. There are many different types of braces available.
