Alignment issues can develop with your teeth from a wide range of causes. This could be an orthodontic issue that wasn’t addressed in your younger years or an alteration in your dentition from tooth loss. Even if you learn to live with the cosmetic imperfection of your smile, these alignment issues could lead to other dental complications.
As time goes by, two or more teeth can start to rub on each other in an unnatural manner. This wear and tear, which is known as dental attrition, can cause discomfort and pain and it can even lead to severe tooth decay.
To prevent this from happening, Drs. Shabbir Adenwalla and Inayat Ashai can install braces in your mouth. There are several different variations on braces. The style Drs. Shabbir Adenwalla and Inayat Ashai recommends for you will be based on the severity of the alignment issue as well as your personal preference.
If you had underbite or overbite issues that were not corrected in your youth, your chances of suffering dental attrition or a dental fracture is at increased risk. Along with significant alignment or overcrowding issues, they might recommend traditional braces.
If you’d like, Drs. Shabbir Adenwalla and Inayat Ashai can apply ceramic braces to your smile. This special appliance that can be shaded to match your tooth enamel, making it harder for the casual observer to see the braces.
If you have minor alignment issues with your teeth, Drs. Shabbir Adenwalla and Inayat Ashai might recommend a removable style of clear, plastic aligners like Invisalign®. The custom aligners can gradually adjust your teeth in about the same amount of time it takes for braces to align your smile.
