Did you know that straightening your teeth is about more than the way you look? Misaligned or crooked teeth can create nooks and crannies in your smile, perfect places for plaque and bacteria to accumulate. As a result, you could suffer more oral problems, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Effective brushing and flossing is much easier to maintain with straight teeth. At Moses Lake Family Dentistry, we are proud to offer several methods for realigning your teeth into their ideal positions. To get on the path toward a straighter smile, contact our team to schedule an appointment with Dr. Harder.
Time and time again, the classic traditional braces have proven effective for resolving even the most severe cases of misalignment. Although this option involves metal brackets and wires, you can personalize your look by choosing colored rubber bands. This affordable option is particularly helpful for those with major occlusal and alignment problems, but Dr. Harder can help you determine which orthodontic treatment will best suit your needs. All you have to do is schedule a consultation with our office.
As effective as traditional braces are, they can make some feel self-conscious during treatment. That’s why we also offer Invisalign clear aligners. This system of customized trays gently applies force to your teeth, guiding them into proper alignment. They are barely visible when worn and can be removed for eating and daily oral care, allowing you more freedom and confidence. Also, straightening your teeth with Invisalign is typically faster than with traditional braces. In fact, it can cut your treatment time in half.
As an alternative to Invisalign, our practice offers clear aligners that we make right here in our office in Moses Lake. These aligners offer all the same great benefits as Invisalign, but they cost significantly less. Also, because they are created closer to home, you can receive your aligners sooner and experience less stress if you need an aligner replaced. To learn more about this exciting orthodontic option, call us and schedule a consultation.
