Orthodontics is the practice of straightening teeth. Crowded or misaligned teeth are hard to keep clean and can easily succumb to disease. By correcting a poor bite, you can have happier, healthier smiles. Jaw problems can result from uncorrected bite problems. TMD and other problems can impact chewing, talking, swallowing–even breathing.
Dr. Kosmas Kasimatis and his team of dental professionals offer the most current treatments for orthodontics for cosmetic purposes or as part of a larger treatment for the entire mouth.
Types of Orthodontic Care
- Invisalign® – The clear aligners are transparent and removable, making them a popular option. Patients wear their clear trays for approximately two weeks. After two weeks, the patients get a new set. Because they are removable, patients enjoy the ease of taking them off to clean or eat. It takes 12-18 months.
- ClearCorrect™– Also transparent, ClearCorrect™ aligners are used for crowded teeth, correcting large gaps, overbites, underbites and crooked teeth.
- Simpli5 – Another transparent aligning treatment, this effectively addresses minor to moderate crowding or spacing. It also will realign previously straightened teeth. The teeth are slowly moved without discomfort. Simpli5 is more affordable for than the other two options, and takes approximately six months.
