One of the most common dental issues that adults face is tooth wear due to  bite problems including underbites, overbites, and issues caused by crooked or missing teeth. Unfortunately, tooth wear can have impacts on the ability to chew as well as a person’s appearance, and can even cause pain if the tooth nerve becomes exposed.

Fortunately, by straightening out your bite, we can treat the common causes of tooth wear. We have the ideal solution for adults who might have wanted their bite corrected or simply desire a straighter smile, but at this stage of life, are not willing to consider traditional metal braces. Invisalign® offers the convenience and flexibility to prevent additional tooth wear due to bite problems without the hassle– and without anyone knowing. Here’s how:

  • Invisalign aligners are made of a virtually invisible plastic. You’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out how many people won’t even notice you’re in orthodontic treatment. That means not having to feel self-conscious about how you look.

  • Instead of irritating brackets or wires to worry about and the food restrictions that come with traditional orthodontic treatment, Invisalign is a series of smooth, removable aligners that allow you to continue to eat the things you love.

  • Invisalign allows for the continuity of your oral hygiene regimen. Since the aligners are removable, you can brush and floss normally.
