Options for Correcting Minor Malocclusions

Posted .

Braces are often thought to correct considerable dental alignment issues. This sometimes means that people with minor malocclusions think they don’t really need them. Did you know, however, that minor problems can have more serious implications over time?

For example, two or more teeth may rub against one another gradually, creating dental attrition, erosion, tooth decay, cavities and even small dental fractures.

Thankfully, Drs. Kirby Nelson can prevent these problems and improve your smile’s appearance simply by installing braces at their orthodontic clinic in North Bend, Washington. If you don’t like the look of the metal on your smile, Drs. Kirby Nelson can even apply a porcelain coating that will match your tooth enamel and hide it more discreetly.

An even better option may be to get fitted with clear thermoplastic aligners like Invisalign®. These are removable, enabling you to choose what you eat and clean your teeth more efficiently. They are also incredibly discrete. These aligners can improve the alignment of your teeth in as little as six to eight weeks. Talk to Drs. Kirby Nelson about whether your smile qualifies.

If you live in the North Bend, Washington, area and you have alignment issues with your teeth, you can ring 425-888-1896 to schedule a braces consultation at Kirby Nelson Orthodontics.
