An incorrect bite may cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, difficulty in chewing and/or speaking, excess stress on supporting bone and gum tissue, and possible jaw joint problems.

Orthodontic problems, if left untreated, may have an adverse social or psychological problem impact.

Untreated orthodontic problems can become worse over time, requiring more extensive treatment in the future.

Orthodontic treatment to correct a problem early may prove less costly than the additional dental care required to treat the more serious problems that can develop in later years.

Therefore, do not hesitate to…

Orthodontic treatment is an option for most adults with crooked teeth or uneven bites, just as it is for children and teenagers.

Some of the most common situations where orthodontic treatment might be considered in adults are:

  • Crowded, crooked or misplaced teeth
  • Protruding teeth (overbites)
  • Underbites
  • Deep bites
  • Open Bites
  • Jaw and/or facial asymmetry
  • Excessive spacing between the teeth
  • Realignment of the teeth prior to the placement of veneers, crowns, implants or even dentures.

Your Clear Alternative to Braces

“Braces-less Orthodontics / Invisible Orthodontics”

Invisalign (Option 1)

You can exude confidence with Invisalign treatment – the clear and virtually invisible solution for straightening your teeth.

Watch this video to your right now to quickly learn more about Invisalign and how Invisalign has delivered over 6 million satisfied smiles Worldwide.

Invisalign Has 8 Main Benefits:

1. Invisible Appearance
2. Comfort
3. Improved Cleanliness
4. Saves Time
5. Safe and Removable
6. Eat Whatever You Want
7. Better Dental Health
8. Beautifully Straight Teeth

My Gentle Dentist is a Certified Provider of Invisalign and will discuss this option with you.

To help build your removable aligners for your Invisalign treatment, we use a sophisticated iTero imaging system to scan your teeth rather than using outdated impressions processes that cause patients to gag.

With the iTero scanning system, patients can avoid the traumatic and stressful impression-taking procedures that can occur with traditional methods, which can cause much discomfort and unpleasant gag reflex.

iTero offers precision imaging that enhances accuracy and improves the final outcome without the mess. Where traditional impressions can bubble, tear or distort, iTero eliminates these physical flaws.

You can feel confident knowing that your Invisalign treatment will be designed to comfortably and precisely fit your teeth for incredible results.

Before & After Invisalign Treatment

ClearCorrect (Option 2)

You deserve a smile you can be proud of and ClearCorrect can make it happen.

Watch this video to your right now to quickly learn more about ClearCorrect.

If you are not completely happy with your smile, but are not a big fan of metal braces, clear aligners might be just the thing for you.

Straighter teeth do not just look better; they work better too.

Poorly-aligned teeth can interfere with bite function, can wear out faster, and are more prone to cavities.

And once you have got a smile you love; you may just find you cannot help but show it off.

Ask My Gentle Dentist if ClearCorrect is right for you and start smiling with confidence!
