We Offer A Variety Of Orthodontics To Help You Achieve Your Perfect Smile

Misaligned teeth can be unsightly and they can also cause other dental problems. In many cases the misalignment of teeth within the visible smile area can be corrected without the use of traditional metal braces. Sometimes, only minor movement is needed in order for a person to have a straight, beautiful smile. At Smile Avenue Family Dentistry, we offer some options for those who could benefit from minor adjustment in the alignment of their teeth.

Causes And Cures For Misalignment

Not everyone is born with a mouth that will provide a straight set of teeth, resulting in needing dental care services. There are physical factors as well as personal habits that can cause teeth to develop in a crooked fashion. Sometimes a person has less jaw space than necessary for the size teeth that are coming in. Occasionally a person may have more than one set of permanent teeth that can cause problems. Primary teeth may be slow in coming out causing the permanent teeth to come in crooked or out of place.

Personal habits also cause a variety of misalignments particularly in anterior teeth. Thumbsucking is a big culprit for pushing teeth out of proper alignment. Keeping a child on the bottle or pacifier is also a reason teeth may be out of place.

If you have minor misalignment in teeth affecting your smile, contact Smile Avenue Family Dentistry today for a consultation appointment with Dr. Vuong. After examining your bite and the teeth, Dr. Vuong will advise you on your options and tell you how your teeth can be brought back into alignment. Overlapping teeth, buck teeth or slightly gapped teeth along with other minor issues can be moved into the ideal position giving you that ideal smile.
