Treating crooked teeth is often more than just cosmetic dentistry- it is often important for improving dental health.
Teeth that are crooked or misaligned can make it difficult to clean effectively, increasing the risk of tooth decay, and can be the cause of bite disorders such as TMJ.
Virginia Beach cosmetic dentist Dr. Cappy Sinclair is an Invisalign provider and often recommends it for patients needing mild to moderate orthodontic treatment. Invisalign can effectively treat:
- cross bite
- over bite
- under bite
- misaligned teeth
Invisalign also offers many benefits to patients and is available for both children and adults. The clear retainers are easy to use, comfortable and enable patients to brush and floss normally during treatment. No more hassles with metal brackets and wires that can irritate the gums and inside of the cheeks.
Dr. Sinclair will create a custom plan of treatment for Invisalign patients that typically lasts about a year and will gradually reposition the teeth to address a dental health or cosmetic concern. Adult patients especially appreciate the “invisibility” factor- no one has to know they are undergoing orthodontic treatment!
Invisalign can be a great option for adult patients who have had previous orthodontic treatment that is beginning to shift as they age. Keeping the teeth aligned properly will help to maintain long term dental health- and a comfortable, functional smile.
Known for his caring approach and skillful cosmetic dentistry, Dr. Sinclair can discuss how Invisalign treatment can improve your smile- and your oral health- during a consultation. Call Coastal Cosmetic in Virginia Beach or schedule an appointment online.
