Orthodontics Can Improve Your Smile, Self-Confidence and Dental Health

At the Cosmetic Dentistry Institute, we offer several effective orthodontic treatments. When you come to our Troy, MI practice, you can choose between state-of-the-art Braces and subtle Invisalign®.   Invisalign® uses clear, almost undetectable aligners to straighten teeth. Our general dentists will explain both options and help you select the right one for your needs. With either method, your straighter smile will rejuvenate your appearance and self-confidence. It could also improve your lifelong oral health, reducing your risk for decay, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder and other problems.

  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth
  • An overbite
  • An underbite

Orthodontics is often associated with the teenage years. While it is true that many teens will benefit from treatment, we offer effective care for adults as well.

Orthodontic Treatment Options at Cosmetic Dentistry Institute

Invisalign® is a very popular choice because it offers unrivaled subtlety. This treatment can address any of the problems listed above, and, in some cases, it can correct more severe forms of misalignment. Dr. Craig Goldin and Dr. David Whalen are certified Invisalign® providers. If you choose this orthodontic method, your dentist will take impressions of your teeth. Using the molds, he or she can provide a set of aligner trays made to over your dental arches. Because each tray will have a slightly different shape, they will gently push your teeth into straighter positions. Invisalign® trays are made from smooth, clear plastic. Therefore, they are discreet and more comfortable than metal braces.

The Importance of Orthodontia

Orthodontics can dramatically improve your appearance. Your straighter teeth can enliven your whole face, giving you a bigger and more enticing smile. These aesthetic improvements can also enhance your self-confidence and many other aspects of your life. For example, teens may find it easier to navigate the social pressures of high school. Adults may feel more confident becoming leaders in the workplace.

In addition, orthodontic treatment can have many, less obvious benefits for your oral health. First, it can reduce your chances for dental decay, since crowded teeth can often trap bacteria. In many cases, Invisalign® can also lessen your risk for TMJ Disorder. A bad overbite or underbite can put a lot of pressure on your jaw, damaging the joints or causing inflammation in the surrounding muscles.
