Achieve a Healthy, Perfect Smile with Orthodontic Treatments

For many patients, perfectly aligned teeth mean a stunning smile. However, did you know that straighter teeth are healthier? Crooked, overcrowded, and bunched-out teeth are challenging to brush and floss. Misaligned teeth create “trouble spots” in the mouth, allowing harmful bacteria to accumulate in areas the toothbrush can’t reach. Slowly, this bacterial sludge causes decay, infections, and other problems.

Dental Associates of Hoboken offers orthodontic treatments to patients of all ages. Whether you are a teenager or an adult, schedule an appointment with Drs. Bari Posner, Anum Ali and Giancarlo Brezillion to start your orthodontic journey.

Why should I straighten my teeth?

Perhaps the most obvious reason to straighten your teeth is to improve your aesthetics. Straighter teeth are easy on the eye, aesthetically pleasing, and often considered more attractive because they create a harmonious and balanced appearance in the smile.

Besides aesthetics, there are other reasons to get straighter teeth.

These include:

  • To prevent tooth decay
  • To improve your bite
  • To enhance your facial aesthetics
  • To enhance natural speech
  • To prevent bruxism and TMJ-related disorder
  • To avoid uneven tooth wear
  • To boost confidence

There are enough reasons you should straighten your teeth. Better yet, there have never been more options for orthodontic improvement than now. From traditional braces to clear aligners, you have no reason to be stuck with a crooked smile. You can perfect your smile with ortho treatments as long as you have adult teeth and healthy gums and jaw.

What are my orthodontic treatment options?

Whether you want to straighten your teeth for cosmetic or functional reasons, you have plenty of options to achieve your orthodontic goals.

These include:

  • Traditional braces: Conventional braces are the most commonly recognized because they have been used for decades. They use metal wires, brackets, and elastics to apply controlled pressure to your teeth to move them to the ideal position. Traditional braces are permanently attached to your teeth; only a dentist can remove/adjust them. Unlike metal braces of yesteryears, modern braces are created from lightweight, tooth-like materials for more comfortable and discreet treatment.
  • Invisalign aligners: Teeth straightening isn’t just for children. While adult braces exist, there is yet another discreet and convenient method. Invisalign uses clear, removable aligners to perfect smiles, making it a popular alternative for teens, adults, and anyone self-conscious about metal braces. Furthermore, Invisalign trays offer removable convenience, allowing you to eat your favorite foods and clean your teeth without limitations.

Orthodontics can correct numerous dental issues, including gapped, misaligned, and overcrowded teeth. Teeth straightening also corrects malocclusions like overbites, underbites, open bites, and cross bites.
