Having straight teeth improve one's look and affects their overall dental and physical health as well. Although most clients who opt for teeth straightening treatment have it done for aesthetic reasons, dentists highly recommend correcting crooked teeth because of the impact this has on overall oral health.

Straight teeth promotes healthy gums. There is less stress on the jaw when teeth are straight and can function properly. Braces are popular for straightening teeth for teenagers with alignment issues. However, metal braces are unattractive and uncomfortable. Additionally, adult teeth can become crooked due to genetics, pregnancy, age or accident. Invisalign Treatment in Newport News, VA is the latest teeth straightening breakthrough and these clear braces are comfortable to wear. They don't require brackets and wires, are virtually invisible, and are removable for daily teeth cleaning and care.

Because Invisalign clear aligners do not have metal wires, it is easier to maintain the oral hygiene and they require fewer follow-up checkups and adjustments with the dentist. If you are interested in this treatment for crooked teeth, contact Oyster Point Dentistry.
