Orthodontic Care

at Aurora Dental Care

If you have a crooked smile or crowded teeth, you may have a “bad bite.” As your Seattle dentist for everything family and cosmetic dentistry, we believe you deserve to feel healthy and confident in your smile. Straightening your smile with orthodontic care such as braces and Invisalign is one of the easiest ways to set yourself up for success and feel good again in your smile.

Even if your teeth look perfectly straight, if they do not rest comfortably, or cause you discomfort or dental pain, call us for a consultation. A healthy smile can change your life!

Do I Need Orthodontic Dental Care?

Having a bad bite (or malocclusion) can be easy to notice. Ask yourself if you have one of the following dental health symptoms:

  • Crowded, shifted or gapped teeth
  • Prolonged thumb-sucking or premature loss of teeth
  • Dental injury that results in lost, dislodged or shifted teeth
  • Teeth that grow irregularly into the mouth

Unexpected Symptoms of a Bad Bite

Headaches, neck aches and even jaw pain or TMJ pain (also known as TMD) are all symptoms of a poorly aligned bite. This condition can make it hard to eat, speak or even clean your teeth.

Types of Orthodontic Treatment

Every bite is complex in its own way. That’s why we highly recommend coming in for a consultation. Not only can we walk you through what to expect in the dental office, but you may leave the office with a prediction about how long it will take to achieve your cosmetically beautiful (and healthy!) smile.

Invisalign: Your Favorite Invisible Friend

Patients of all ages often prefer Invisalign over traditional braces. Why? Well, they’re comfortable. Invisible. And totally discreet. Unlike traditional braces with brackets that are known to chafe the mouth and lips, Invisalign fits comfortably over the teeth–and you won’t need to apply slimy wax just to feel comfortable.

With Invisalign, you can hold on to the things you love (like getting to eat all of your favorite foods and treats!) without giving up the fun stuff that makes life so enjoyable, like celebrating carefree smiles with your friends and family. By wearing aligners over the period of a few months to a little over a year, your teeth are straightened discreetly and comfortably to reveal a beautiful and functional smile.
