Crooked teeth and malocclusion can detract from the appearance of your smile in addition to creating dental problems related to the fit and function of your bite. Corbin Dental provides orthodontic care for children, teens, and adults to straighten smiles and improve oral health. Dr. Richard Corbin and Dr. Bruce Corbin work with patients on an individual basis to evaluate their needs, and offer appropriate recommendations for orthodontic care. Our dentist offices in Oyster Bay, Bayside and Jackson Heights, NY offer several types of short-term orthodontics to meet your malocclusion needs.
Why straighten my crooked teeth?
A straighter smile is also a healthier smile. Teeth that are crooked can present challenges for keeping clean and avoiding common dental problems such as decay and gum disease. It is difficult to reach all tooth surfaces when teeth are not aligned properly, often crossing over one another.
Crooked teeth can also create bite problems, preventing the teeth from making proper contact when biting. This can lead to tooth damage, teeth grinding and TMJ related disorders. Straightening your smile can rebalance your smile and enable a more stable, comfortable bite.
Am I a candidate for short-term orthodontics?
The first step in developing a treatment plan to address crooked teeth and malocclusion is to perform a comprehensive exam. Your Corbin dentist will evaluate all aspects of your bite to determine the most suitable solution for you or your child. Short-term orthodontics can include Invisalign clear aligners. Invisalign is a clear aligner system that can treat a wide range of concerns discreetly and comfortably.
Invisalign can be suitable for teen and adult patients. All treatment is completed in your local Queens NY dentist office.
