Are crooked teeth a health concern?
Crooked teeth are both a cosmetic and restorative dental concern. It is never too late to straighten crooked teeth or close the gaps between your teeth. Adult patients can benefit from realigning their teeth at any age allowing them to enjoy a more beautiful and healthy smile.
Patients who have had crooked teeth their whole life may struggle with feeling embarrassed to share their smile. Straightening crooked or gap teeth can improve self-confidence and oral health. Straighter smiles tend to develop less tooth decay and have a lower risk of gum disease. Straight teeth also support a stable bite and jaw health.
Clear Aligners for Crooked Teeth
Dr. Jose Gil offers clear aligners for mild cosmetic orthodontic concerns to improve the apperance of the smile. Clear aligners are discreet and comfortable, ideal for adult patients looking to enhance their smile with straighter teeth. For many patients, Dr. Gil may recommend a combination of dental veneer or other cosmetic treatments in conjunction with clear aligners for ideal results.
All clear aligner treatments are custom designed to address your unique dental issues. Patients receive a series of aligners that are worn daily over a span of about one year. Each set of aligners are worn for approximately two weeks and gradually and comfortably shift teeth into alignment.
For patients with advanced orthodontic concerns, or children with developing orthodontic concerns will be referred out to a local orthodontist so that patients may receive the appropriate care.
