Why Have Straight Teeth?

Straight teeth are often seen purely as a cosmetic concern, but did you know having straight teeth actually improves your oral health?

In addition to being easier to clean (the foundation of oral health), straight teeth:

  • Diminish the risk of bite issues

  • Minimize extra wear to your teeth, including cracks or breaks

  • Lessen your chances of TMJ (a jaw bone / skull disorder)

  • And prevent other issues resulting from crowded or misaligned teeth, such as headaches, digestive problems, or speech difficulties

At Shemen Dental, we suggest Invisalign® to our patients interested in straightening their smiles. Invisalign® is a faster, more comfortable alternative to chunky metal braces. It’s discrete nature makes Invisalign® a perfect choice for patients of all ages.

What Is Invisalign?

Invisalign straightens your smile through a customized set of removable, clear aligners. This removable system gradually shifts your teeth into place, providing patients

with a beautiful, straighter smile in less time than traditional orthodontics.
