Orthodontic services is a branch of dentistry that corrects your teeth and jaws that are not correctly positioned. We can help you determine if orthodontic services are needed.
Common reasons why you may need orthodontic services:
Overbite – Your front two teeth hang over your lower teeth when you bite down
Underbite – Your lower teeth are too far forward
Crossbite – Your upper teeth do not come down slightly in front of the lower teeth
Openbite – Open space between the biting surfaces of your front/side teeth when your back teeth bite down
Spacing – Your teeth have gaps or spacing
Crowding – Your teeth are overlapping or turning/twisting together because there are too many teeth in your mouth
South Gables Dental uses Invisalign. Invisalign is the clear way to straighten teeth without braces, using aligners. Aligners are removable and virtually invisible, which means you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing; and you can still eat and drink what you want. Also, you can brush and floss normally to maintain healthy teeth and gums; and there are no wires, metal or brackets to cause mouth abrasions.
Total treatment time averages 6 – 18 months. Each aligner is worn for 2 weeks. Your teeth will gradually move each week. You will visit us about every six weeks. If you want to learn more about Invisalign and how it works, click here.
