This first month of any new year is filled with people making resolutions and setting goals. A lot of those goals are fitness related, but some of the best goals you can set are related to your teeth. From tooth health to their appearance, our team here at Crozet Dentist in Charlottesville, Virginia, can help you achieve any of your teeth-related resolutions.

One in particular is to quickly align your teeth and straighten out any type of crooked smile. Let’s look at what that process involves.

Why bother with alignment?

Aligning your teeth is critical for more reasons than you might think. When your teeth aren’t straight and in their proper order, this creates more hard angles in your mouth. That results in more places that are difficult to clean, either by brushing or flossing. Straight teeth are much easier to clean, thereby reducing the risk of cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems.

How are they straightened?

We recommend, for patients who qualify for the procedure, the Invisalign® procedure. Invisalign is simple, quick, and effective. It involves wearing a series of plastic aligners for two weeks at a time, over a period of months. The aligners move your teeth into place one set at a time until they’re perfectly straight.

If you’re ready to resolve that you’ll have better teeth this year, call us today at 434-218-7072 to see how we can help straighten your teeth.
