Few people are blessed with perfectly aligned teeth on both their top and bottom jaws—especially those front teeth that everyone sees when you smile. Crooked front teeth are one of the most common cosmetic changes that people seek, and unfortunately, most people have no control over their teeth alignment. But this kind of misalignment, called malocclusion, is not only a cosmetic issue: many forms of malocclusion can lead to greater oral health problems.
Because crooked teeth often overlap, they tend to be more difficult to brush and floss, increasing the likelihood of tooth-decay buildup. Additionally, when teeth are pushed into one another, it can create uneven biting pressure throughout the mouth, causing chewing problems, jaw-muscle strain, and cracked or broken teeth.
For these misalignments, Vista Pacific Dental Care in Oxnard, CA offers solutions based on the corrective needs of our patients. Among the most popular ways to straighten out mildly misaligned teeth is Invisalign®, an easy and painless method of short-term orthodontic treatment. With an average treatment time much shorter than that of standard braces, this alignment method offers a faster alternative to straighter teeth and the advantage of being less invasive.
If you think it’s time to straighten out a few things in life, we’d love to help you out by taking the burden of braces and malocclusion off your hands with an easy alignment method that isn’t as expensive or invasive as traditional braces or aligner therapy.
