Who Needs Teeth Straightening?

Your smile is one of your greatest assets! It’s no wonder that many people invest in their smiles just like they invest in their clothing, hair, and makeup. Making your smile as beautiful as possible can increase your confidence and improve your overall quality of life. Here’s what to know about straightening your teeth if you’re considering it.

Many People Invest In Their Smile

There are many tools your dentist can use to make your teeth straighter. Braces and various tooth space aligners are some of the most common tools that people use. If your teeth are not straight or as white as you would like, talk to your dentist about the resources available to you to make your teeth match your expectations.’

Do You Need to Invest in Your Smile?

If you’re noticing any of the following problems, it may be time to invest in your smile:

  • Your teeth are visibly crooked or there are uneven gaps between your teeth
  • You find it difficult to floss or brush around your teeth because they’re crooked
  • Your jaw is tired after chewing
  • You frequently bite your tongue
  • You lisp or have trouble pronouncing certain sounds because of the shape and position of your teeth
  • You can hear a clicking sound in your jaw when you chew

If you have any of these symptoms, speak to your dentist. One of the best ways to catch problems with your tooth alignment is to see your dentist because they’ll be able to see the signs that your teeth could benefit from dental appliances like braces.

Straightening Methods From Dr. Weninger

At Dr. Weninger’s office, we can help you invest in your smile.

EZ-Align. EZ-Align is a clear aligner that fits over the teeth. The aligner puts pressure on the teeth so they’ll move gradually, taking on a different shape. Over time, one aligner is swapped out for another one. Each aligner makes gradual changes to the shape of the teeth. EZ-Align works like braces to adjust the teeth and put them in perfect alignment. However, clear aligners are different from braces in a few ways:

  • EZ-Align is nearly invisible, so it won’t interfere with your beautiful smile.
  • EZ-Align can be removed when it’s time to clean your teeth, which means you can eat nearly any food you like without concern that you won’t be able to clean your teeth adequately.

Six Month Smiles. This braces system is made up of hard-to-see or clear aligners that can correct your smile in about 6 months. Six-month smiles are specifically made for adult smiles.
