The benefits of orthodontic treatment often go beyond the obvious physical changes of an improved bite and straighter teeth; it’s also a great way to improve a person’s overall self-image. While having beautiful straight teeth is important, even more important is the need to alleviate any potential health problems associated with the teeth or jaw.
One of the primary concerns people have about braces is the aesthetic impact of metal-work on their smile. Especially for adults, the prospect of wearing unattractive metal braces for long periods of time can be very discouraging. Invisalign® straightens your teeth fast with an invisible aligning system that contains no metal and can be removed at any time.
Dental radiographs (x-rays) are essential, preventative, diagnostic tools that provide valuable information not visible during a regular dental exam. Dentists and dental hygienists use this information to safely and accurately detect hidden abnormalities and complete an accurate treatment plan. Without x-rays, problem areas may go undetected.
