Can we fix crooked teeth?
Impact on other teeth
Orthodontics (braces or Invisalign) to fix crooked teeth
Braces are a proven method to fix crooked teeth, provided by orthodontists or general dentists experienced with orthodontics. Following a teeth straightening consultation at New Smile, we can advise you of types of braces methods that might be suitable for you. There are now options for clear braces and lingual braces in many cases, to reduce the visibility of braces.
There is also Invisalign, an invisible teeth straightening system with the wear of a series of clear aligners that gradually move your teeth. Orthodontics such as braces and Invisalign are used to slowly guide your teeth back to a normal position over time. This is a non-invasive treatment but it will require some patience and compliance before you can benefit from your new smile.
Other treatments for crooked teeth
If your teeth are severely misaligned, you may look into teeth replacement methods such as dental implants. Removing one or several teeth is then followed by replacement. Implant teeth can change the quality of your bite, and of your smile, sometimes immediately, and sometimes in stages. When we do full teeth replacement with implants, we have immediate methods where you don’t have to wait for months, before you get to enjoy your new smile. In such cases, teeth straightening can be immediate by replacement.
However it’s only suitable if teeth need removal for other reasons as well, because if teeth are healthy, then orthodontics is a more sensible and conservative approach. If you have crooked teeth which are also highly diseased or problematic, ask us about immediate our implant replacement options.
