Crooked Teeth? Achieve Your Dream Smile with Dental Braces Treatment

Dental braces aren’t just for teens. If you’re struggling with crooked teeth as an adult, you, too, can benefit from this teeth straightening treatment. Today’s braces are more effective than ever in correcting orthodontic issues and offer greater comfort and ease. You can learn more about dental braces at Mid-Valley Dental Care in Northridge, California. 

Importance of Straightening Crooked Teeth

Although most people wear braces to improve their smile’s appearance, that’s not the only reason to undergo orthodontic treatment. Aligning your teeth will help improve tooth and gum health and your smile’s aesthetic appeal. Crooked teeth are more prone to decay, wear and tear, bite problems, painful chewing, and other dental issues, which can greatly increase your dental bills. Straightening your smile can prevent these problems and give you stronger, healthier teeth for the future. 

Dental braces can correct such orthodontic issues as:

  • Crooked and overcrowded teeth
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Uneven/overlapping teeth
  • Overbites, underbites, and crossbites
  • Uneven spaces or gaps in your smile
  • Protruding teeth

Orthodontic Options

At Mid-Valley Dental Care, Drs. Terence Lau, Casey Lau, and Kayla Lau offer several orthodontic options for straightening your smile: 

Traditional Metal Braces: These braces consist of metal brackets and wires that remain on your teeth throughout your treatment to shift your teeth into a straighter position gently. Your dentist will adjust the wires every few weeks to continue the straightening process until you’ve achieved the desired results.

Ceramic Braces: Ceramic braces are comparable to traditional braces, but the brackets are composed of tooth-colored or transparent ceramic material, making your treatment more discreet.

Removable Teeth Aligners: In place of brackets and wires, clear, plastic aligners are used to straighten crooked teeth. These aligners are custom-made for your use. When worn, they place gentle pressure on your teeth to shift them into alignment. The aligners can be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing your teeth.

With the help of your Mid-Valley Dental Care team in Northridge, CA, your dream smile is well within reach. Contact us today at (818) 886-3500 to learn more about our teeth straightening treatments.
