ADULT BRACES IN LAFAYETTE – Cosmetic Dentistry at its finest
Dr. Gina Liggio Maestri, DDS offers comprehensive orthodontic treatments, the most common of orthodontics that patients can receive. This treatment completely corrects bite problems from start to finish in one stage. It’s appropriate for adults, young adults and children – those who have lost or almost lost all of their baby teeth.
Clear aligners provide an ideal orthodontics solution to adults with mild-to-moderate spacing, crowding, and bite problems. Comprised of clear, plastic aligners that fit over the teeth and slowly move them into their proper placement, clear aligners offer several advantages:
- Nearly invisible so no one will know you’re straightening your teeth.
- The custom-fitted aligners will not irritate the soft tissues of your cheeks and gums like traditional metal braces.
- Fewer return visits to the dentist’s office.
- Since aligners can be removed for certain activities, you do not have to eliminate any foods from your diet and you can clean your teeth as you would normally.
benefits of a straighter smile
Taking steps to correct spacing and alignment issues can benefit your overall well-being in several ways, including:
- Properly spaced teeth are easier to clean, which helps you avoid developing gum disease and tooth decay.
- Correcting bite and alignment issues can help you avoid developing a painful problem with your TMJs.
- Straight, symmetrical smiles look great and, according to a survey conducted by Kelton Research, can make you look smarter and more professional.
- Feeling confident about the appearance of your smile makes you want to smile more. This has a positive effect both on your mental health and on the attitudes of those around you.
