Sure, if you have misaligned teeth this may be a telltale sign that you could benefit from braces. Of course, even teeth that are seemingly straight may still benefit from orthodontic treatment. Whether your child’s teeth have just started to come in or you are considering braces as an adult, let our Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY, dentist Dr. Frank Visintini help you decide whether this treatment is right for you.

Are you dealing with any of these issues?

  • Crooked or twisted teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Crowding
  • Spaces between teeth
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

If you said yes then you could be an ideal candidate for orthodontic treatment. Sure, the idea of getting braces as an older teen or adult might have you a bit nervous, but luckily you are living in a world in which modern dental technology rules! Our Bay Ridge, NY, general dentist offers many ways to get the smile results you want without having to wear those metal braces you remember from your childhood.

No matter if you are dealing with severe misalignments or only minor ones, we have the orthodontic treatment to meet your needs. Traditional braces are a great way to get the results you want if you are dealing with more complicated and complex tooth movements or jaw realignment. Of course, before you say “no”, the traditional braces you remember are no longer that clunky unsightly metal. Metal braces are much sleeker, thinner and less obtrusive. Plus, you can even choose to get tooth-colored brackets and wires, to ensure that your braces blend in with your teeth and are less obvious.

Of course, most people have also heard of Invisalign, the nearly invisible way to straighten your smile. Instead of brackets and wires, Invisalign uses a series of custom-made clear aligners that are designed to gradually and safely shift teeth into the proper position. Invisalign is great for older teens and adults who are dedicated to wearing these aligners about 22 hours out of the day, and it can treat everything from minor to more serious dental misalignments.

Visintini Dental in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn, NY, is dedicated to making sure you get the orthodontic treatment you need to get the smile you’ve always wanted. It’s never too late to turn to braces to achieve that perfect smile. Call our office today to schedule a consultation with us.
