It’s never too late to get a straighter smile. We can help you achieve just that!Orthodontics

 

While those with obvious misalignments in their smile will often assume that braces will help them in some way, this isn’t always something that’s as easy to determine for everyone. Adults, in particular, aren’t always sure whether braces are the best option for them. Our Provo, UT, dentist Dr. Gary Wiest is here to tell you that many people, no matter their age, could benefit from orthodontic treatment. Find out if you could be one of them.

Most people assume that braces will only help to straighten teeth and improve the look of your smile, but orthodontic treatment can actually offer so much more. If you have a bad bite or if you have misaligned jaws you could benefit greatly from getting braces. Having crooked or misaligned teeth can make it more difficult to properly clean your teeth, which can lead to decay and gum disease. By straightening your smile with orthodontics we can improve the health of your teeth, gums and jawbone.

Common issues orthodontic treatment can address include:

  • Gaps between teeth
  • Crowding or overlapping
  • Protruding, twisted or crooked teeth
  • Crossbites, open bites, underbites and overbites

So yes, orthodontics can certainly improve the shape of your smile but it can do so much more. It can even make your smile healthier for the long term. In our office, our Provo, UT, general dentist offers a variety of ways to get a straighter smile.

While metal and tooth-colored traditional braces may be a better option for someone dealing with more complex and complicated tooth movements, invisible aligners and Six-Month Smiles may be a great way to straighten smiles for adults and teens who don’t want others to notice that they are wearing braces. The best orthodontic option for you will really depend on the severity of the issues you need to correct, your budget and your lifestyle.

Whether you have questions about our unique orthodontic options we offer or you need to schedule a consultation with us, let the experts at Provo Dental in Provo, UT, provide you with the help you need and the straighter smile you want.
