Do you sometimes stop and realize you’re clenching your teeth or your jaw sometimes locks when you’re eating? Do you have pain in the facial muscles or jaw? If your bite or other teeth are misaligned, you may need orthodontic work to gently reposition your teeth. But you certainly don’t want a mouthful of metal braces!
At the Smile Studio at Vintage Dental, Dr. Rick Rodig offers Invisalign® invisible braces in Modesto. Invisalign can correct malocclusion (a poor bite) and other orthodontic problems by using a series of clear aligners, custom-fit orthotics that fit over your teeth and are replaced every two weeks until the desired adjustment is achieved.
Unlike traditional braces, the Invisalign aligners can be removed to eat and drink, and floss and brush your teeth. If you’re at work, meeting clients, going on job interviews, you can still have your teeth adjusted and feel confident about your smile.
Other solutions for malocclusion may be smoothing or building up your biting teeth, or replacing them with crowns.
If you think you may have any of the symptoms associated with malocclusion, contact our Modesto dental office at 209-524-5044, Riverbank, Oaksdale, or other nearby communities. If Invisalign is right for you, you can start straightening your smile now and no one will know!
