Braces & Invisalign
Maligned teeth may not only look bad but may give occlusion problems. Pinawa Dental helps fix crooked teeth for patients of all ages. If you're concerned about having metal in your mouth for 18 months Invisalign is a great alternative that provides clear braces.
Invisalign is a type of orthodontic treatment that can be used to achieve a more beautiful smile. It can be used for patients who have mild to moderate misalignment and can also align their bite. Patients with overbite, crossbite, or underbite can also benefit from Invisalign. The process is done using clear plastic aligner trays to gradually move the teeth into proper alignment. This is done by wearing the trays for at least 20 hours a day. The trays are easily removed, allowing patients to maintain their oral health and wellness, flossing and brushing as they normally would without having to worry about brackets and wires that can make it complicated.
Orthodontics is the specialty of dentistry focused on the diagnosis and treatment of dental and associated facial irregularities. The results of orthodontic treatment can be dramatic — beautiful smiles, improved dental health and an enhanced quality of life for many people of all ages. Orthodontic problems, which can result from genetic and environmental factors, must be diagnosed before treatment begins. Proper diagnosis involves taking photographs, x-rays, and dental impressions, which enable our practice to make informative decisions about the form of treatment necessary.
