Removable Orthodontics

An Aligned Bite For Wellness & Beauty

Why would orthodontics be so important to a biologic and holistic dentist? Because an aligned bite does more than improve your appearance; it’s important to your oral and overall health, too. Your bite, if misaligned, can affect your ability to chew and eat the foods you need to live a healthy life. It can also lead to sleep apnea and limit the rest your body requires to heal each night. Undue stress can be put on your teeth as your bite comes together improperly, this can cause chipping and cracking, and preventable tooth decay.

Complications Of Misaligned Bite

Misaligned bites can cause lots of problems. They can increase the risk of gum disease and cavities, make it hard to chew as well as cause broken and crooked teeth. If it is left untreated, development problems can result in sinus congestion, ear, facial, neck and jaw pain and headaches. In case you have an under bite or over bite, it is best to have it treated immediately by an orthodontist.

Usually, misaligned bites will get worse as an individual gets older that can make the teeth more crowded than before. Thus, it is best to start taking your child to a dentist when his or her teeth start to fall out and sometimes, even earlier than this.

Common Complications Include:

  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder
  • Sleep apnea or trouble breathing
  • Jaw pain and headaches
  • Difficulty keeping your teeth free from decay
  • Increased likelihood of periodontal disease
  • Chips, cracks, and worn-down teeth

The Biologic Approach To Braces

Your crooked, crowded teeth or misaligned bite can be transformed into a straight, gorgeous, and functional smile. We use a metal-free solution to orthodontics that not only avoids the harmful brackets and wires used in traditional braces, but offers a discreet and natural-looking treatment process many enjoy. For a clear braces consultation, Dr. Curatola is a pioneer in the application and use of advanced removable orthodontic therapy, such as Invisalign® clear aligners in New York City, NY. The Rejuvenation Dentistry team will find the orthodontic solution that preserves and improves your health, without harming it!

Straighter Smiles In Six Months

If you want straight teeth without lengthy treatment times, Six Month Smiles® is another efficient option we offer. Used when the bite is aligned but the front teeth are unattractively placed, this method moves only the visible teeth, closing gaps or correcting crowding and preventing unnecessary tooth decay. When teeth are crowded or have gaps, food or plaque can collect leading to inflammation and infection and a strain on your immune system. We recommend fast treatment to ensure your smile and your health is protected. Six Month Smiles is the perfect solution if you want straight teeth faster for an important upcoming event. Clear braces are an available option for Six Month Smiles as well.
