Unhappy with the alignment of your teeth?

Like the shape of your teeth but feel crowding ruins your smile? If you are an adult or a teen who has completed tooth and jaw development, you may be a candidate for Invisalign. Dr. Ban Barbat offers Invisalign as an alternative to braces, which uses clear, medical grade polymer to move teeth. Unlike traditional braces, the trays are generally undetectable when worn and can be removed to eat and clean teeth.

“This comfortable, convenient method of straightening teeth is particularly appealing for adults who have professions with frequent person to person contact,” states Dr. Barbat.

One patient in the residential real estate profession postponed straightening her teeth for several years, dreading the thought of luncheons and conversations with clients and homeowners while enduring brackets and wires, caught food, sore gums and an awkward appearance. When she found Invisalign could give the same level of realignment without the hassle, her wait was over.In addition to a more appealing smile, Dr. Barbat states, “There are many benefits of straight teeth. They are easier to clean, so you have less risk for cavities and gum disease. Proper alignment also prevents strain on jaw joints and facial muscles.” She explains when everything works in unison, the potential for problems later declines, helping you avoid headaches, sore jaw joints, and worn, chipped teeth from clenching, grinding, or hitting incorrectly. Because straight teeth create a more attractive smile AND good oral health. Contact our Shelby TWP Cosmetic Dental Office today for more information.
