At Tribeca Dental, we strive to help every patient we serve feel healthier and more confident about their smile. One way we are able to achieve this mission is to offer Invisalign orthodontic services to patients who need support in straightening and repositioning crooked teeth. Our professional team offers support in improving healthy oral habits, while our skilled orthodontists develop the best plan of action to meet your personal dental goals.
Why is having straight teeth important?
Having crooked or misaligned teeth can cause certain issues beyond insecurities with cosmetic appearance. When teeth are twisted in different directions, it makes it difficult to keep them clean, as there may be certain grooves you can’t quite get to. This can lead to the possibility of tooth decay and periodontal disease. Crooked teeth, or a jaw that is out of place, can also cause stress to your chewing muscles, which can lead to regular headaches, TMJ syndrome, or neck, shoulder, and back pain.
What are the benefits of orthodontic treatment?
Undergoing orthodontic treatment will only improve your health and confidence. It is easy to forget that oral health has a significant impact on your entire body and its functions. Orthodontic treatment will enhance your chances of having teeth that will last throughout your lifetime.
How do you know if you need orthodontic treatment?
It is important to see a dentist or orthodontist to determine your dental care needs. During your consultation, your Tribeca Dental provider will use diagnostic tools and practices to determine the plan of action. This includes a clinical exam, gathering your full medical and dental health history, getting plaster models of your teeth, and taking x-rays and photographs of your mouth. With this information, your orthodontist can develop the best treatment for you. Below is a list of conditions that would require orthodontic treatments:
How does orthodontic treatment work?
At Tribeca Dental, we are an Invisalign only practice which helps for moving teeth, retraining muscles, and realigning jaws.
Removable Appliance (Invisalign)
Clear aligners: Used as an alternative to traditional braces, clear aligners are an appliance that you put over your teeth throughout the day, which can be removed while eating, brushing, and flossing.
Removable retainers: These devices are used to prevent shifting of teeth that have already undergone alignment treatment, or to prevent thumb-sucking.
