Straight Teeth Matter

The primary purpose of orthodontic treatment is to create a healthy bite—straight teeth that properly meet opposing teeth in the opposite jaw. A good bite makes it easier for you to bite, chew and speak.

If your teeth are crowded, protrusive, spaced too far apart, meet in an abnormal way, or do not meet at all, correction may be recommended. Braces and aligners are the “appliances” orthodontists most commonly use to guide your teeth into their proper positions. Retainers preserve and stabilize the results of your orthodontic treatment.
From reducing your risk of gum disease to improving bite functions and overall dental health, there are many clear benefits when you choose to undergo Invisalign treatment.

Invisalign addresses jaw-related issues by improving alignment. Untreated bite problems can lead to more serious oral complications, including cavities, tooth loss, gum infection, enamel erosion and even difficulties with speech or eating.

Orthodontist Testimonial

Dr. Donna Galante sees patients reporting less pain with Invisalign® treatment. With Invisalign clear aligners, patients don't experience the pain from metal brackets and wires that can cause discomfort.

Like traditional braces, Invisalign also corrects a range of tooth misplacement. Crooked, gapped and crowded teeth are no match for this treatment, which uses a series of progressive disposable aligners to gradually align teeth.

Orthodontics for Oral Health

Oral health is often taken for granted. Your mouth is a window into the health of your body that shows signs of nutritional deficiencies or general infection. Systemic diseases may first become apparent because of mouth lesions or other oral problems.

Some 100 million Americans fail to see a dentist each year, even though regular dental examinations and good oral hygiene can prevent most dental disease. Many people believe that they need to see a dentist only if they are in pain or think something is wrong, but regular dental visits can contribute to a lifetime of good oral health.

You can practice good oral hygiene by always brushing your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste, cleaning between your teeth once a day with floss or another interdental cleaner, replacing your toothbrush every three or four months and by eating a balanced diet and limiting between-meal snacks. Don't forget to schedule regular dental check-ups to keep your smile, and yourself, healthy.
