Crooked, crowded teeth? Straighten your smile in Shelby Twp

Experience The BEAUTIFUL Difference Of A Smile With Straight Teeth In Proper Alignment. Shelby Township Dentist Dr. Ban R. Barbat is your Macomb and Oakland County destination for orthodontics!

Although you may not realize it, teeth that don’t ‘meet’ together properly can lead to problems that extend far beyond your smile.

When people think of straightening teeth, it’s often in pursuit of a more beautiful smile. Yet, the health benefits of straight teeth that are properly aligned shouldn’t be overlooked.

Straight teeth are easier to keep clean. Crooked or crowded teeth tend to create angles that are difficult for a tooth brush to reach. When oral bacteria accumulate, the result can be cavities or gum disease.

What may seem to be minor alignment problems can go much deeper than what is merely esthetic. Misaligned teeth can lead to:

  • Worn, cracked or chipped teeth
  • Frequent headaches, migraines and sore jaw joints
  • Ear ringing
  • Feeling off-balance and dizzy at times
  • Clenching and/or grinding teeth during sleep
  • Pain in facial, neck and shoulder muscles

Without a correct bite, the jaw joints can become stressed. This can result in TMJ Disorder, which can cause headaches, migraines, sore jaw joints, ear ringing and pain in facial, neck and shoulder muscles.

In our office, Orthodontic specialist Dr. Jessica Delgado can make recommendations to restore proper bite alignment while enhancing your smile’s appearance. In addition to traditional braces, Dr. Barbat and Dr. Delgado are certified in Invisalign (for teens & adults).

For an alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign offers a more comfortable method to straighten teeth. An FDA-cleared system that straightens teeth without wires and brackets, Invisalign also realigns teeth at a pace that is similar to or, in some cases, faster than traditional braces.

Invisalign combines 3-D computer technology with a clear, medical grade polymer to move teeth without the discomfort of braces. They can be removed to eat and clean teeth and are generally undetectable when worn.

Regardless of the option you choose to straighten teeth, easy payment plans are available. Many require no down payment and are interest-free.
