Are you tired of living with crooked teeth? Do you have gaps or spaces between your teeth that you feel self-conscious about? Would you like to smile with confidence? Your cosmetic dentist in Bangor, ME offers solutions that can give you the smile you've always wanted with discretion, so no one will know you are aligning your teeth.
Crooked Teeth and Oral Health
When you live with teeth that are crooked or overlap, it takes a toll on your self-esteem. Did you know that it is also affecting your oral health? Teeth that overlap are harder to keep clean, which increases your risk of developing issues like tooth decay and gum disease. When your bite is misaligned, you may experience painful headaches or issues with your jaw joint known as TMJ. Straighter teeth are healthier teeth, and orthodontics can help you meet your goals for your smile.
Invisalign and ClearCorrect
Instead of using traditional brackets and wires to straighten your teeth, both Invisalign and ClearCorrect use clear aligners made of plastic. Your aligners are designed to fit snug, so they are comfortable to wear each day and they are virtually invisible. By wearing your aligners at least 22 hours per day, you will achieve the best results. They can, however, be removed for eating, brushing, and flossing, and the occasional big event or important meeting. Dr. Buxton can determine which system is right for your needs during a consultation.
