A misaligned bite, also called malocclusion, can present several problems. Teeth that are not properly aligned can lead to uneven bite tension, excessive tooth wear, and even neuromuscular issues such as TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorder). In addition, crooked teeth can detract from the appearance of your smile.
Although treating misaligned teeth is important for both health and aesthetic reasons, most adults are reluctant to have traditional braces placed. Luckily, there is an alternative that is just as effective but much more convenient. We are pleased to offer Invisalign, the most popular adult orthodontic option available.
If you are interested in correcting your crooked teeth, call Cosmetic & Esthetic Dentistry today at (781) 396-8558 to schedule your consultation. LVI-trained cosmetic dentist Dr. Ryan Clancy will be happy to examine your teeth and let you know if you are a good candidate.
We are proud to be able to say that Dr. Clancy is an Invisalign Preferred Provider. This distinction is bestowed on dentists who not only have completed Invisalign’s advanced training course, but also perform a significant amount of Invisalign treatments throughout the year.
Dr. Clancy has performed many successful Invisalign treatments and has the experience necessary to create custom treatment plans that lead to beautiful outcomes. He is also able to tell if you are not a good Invisalign candidate, and will let you know if he thinks a different treatment would benefit you more.
Dr. Clancy has been straightening patients’ teeth for over 20 years and is well aware of both the importance of being a good candidate for the treatment and how to prevent issues such as sleep apnea and TMJ. These conditions can arise from improper Invisalign use when a dentist does not take the time to carefully consider the entire jaw when creating a treatment plan. Dr. Clancy will only perform Invisalign if he thinks that you will benefit from it with no side effects.
