Orthodontics has grown to be one of the biggest fields of modern dentistry with thousands of children and adults receiving treatment each year for a variety of dental health issues.
New Orleans area dentists Dr. Burmaster and Dr. Hemphill of Barataria Dental offer their patients who need mild to moderate orthodontic treatment the option of Invisalign®. With Invisalign, no one will know that you are wearing braces- the clear retainers fit snugly on the teeth and are changed according to a customized schedule created by Dr. Burmaster or Dr. Hemphill that will gradually align your teeth and restore balance to your bite.
One of the added benefits of using Invisalign for orthodontic treatment is the ability to thoroughly clean teeth and gums because the retainers are removable. This also allows patients to receive a dental cleaning during treatment and reduce the development of tooth decay and gum disease.
Orthodontic treatment not only straightens teeth, it can restore balance to the bite by properly aligning the natural teeth and allowing the jaw to function without being stressed unnecessarily. This can alleviate the effects of a bite disorder such as TMJ and keep your smile strong and healthy for the long run!
