Orthodontics is an advanced field of dentistry that deals with the prevention and correction of misaligned teeth. Many face teeth misalignment issues such as crowded and protruding teeth, gaps between teeth, or crooked teeth that can considerably affect their bite. At Sandia Peak Dental, we provide advanced orthodontic treatments that quickly correct your bite and align your teeth perfectly.
Importance of Orthodontics
Orthodontic treatments involve aligning crooked or improper bites with different techniques and treatment options. Orthodontics addresses many dental issues, including gaps between your teeth, crowded teeth, overbite, underbite, crooked teeth, and many more.
Straight teeth appear more appealing than misaligned or crooked teeth. Appropriate orthodontic treatment can give you a better appearance and straighter teeth.
The orthodontic treatments can not only align your teeth but also protect them from other oral conditions like gingivitis, tooth decay, plaque build-up, and many more. Orthodontic treatments can also treat dental caries, worn tooth enamel, and impaired speech.
When your teeth are incorrectly aligned, they can also affect your ability to chew and eat foods properly. A correct orthodontic treatment fixes such problems and helps improve your nutrition.

Types of Orthodontic Treatments - Invisalign Aligners
Invisalign aligners are clear, invisible aligners made out of smooth, clear plastic. They are custom crafted to fit the unique shape of your mouth. The aligners fit snugly over your teeth and can be removed as necessary.
The Invisalign treatment involves a series of nearly invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that gradually straighten your teeth over time. The patient wears each aligner for two weeks before they change it for the next set of aligners. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculations to gradually shift your teeth into place.
There are many benefits to pursuing treatment with Invisalign.
- They are discreet, comfortable, and convenient.
- They are clear, so no one needs to know you are straightening your teeth.
- They are removable, so you can brush and floss normally.
- They are custom-fit to your mouth, so they fit you perfectly.
How Do Invisalign Works?
Invisalign is a custom-fitted series of aligners. Patients will wear them 22 hours per day, removing them only to eat, brush, and floss. Each one will move your teeth closer to their ideal positions before switching to the next aligner. The aligners are made out of smooth, clear plastic and are virtually invisible to others.
An aligned set of teeth can reinstate your confidence and help you achieve a healthier and more attractive smile.
