Uncorrected Alignment Issues from Childhood Might Require Braces in Adulthood

If you were uncomfortable with the idea of braces in your younger years it can pose more than just cosmetic problems in your mouth. Misaligned teeth are increasingly prone to suffering issues with enamel attrition and dental fractures.

Once tooth enamel has been damaged it might start to collect bacterial deposits, fostering a new cavity to form in the distressed tooth. This could require invasive and costly measure to treat.

To prevent these problems from occurring, Dr. Casey Warren might recommend fitting you for some form of braces. There are several different options available at his orthodontic clinic in Springville, Utah.

Dr. Casey Warren might be able to fit you for Invisalign® to correct minor alignment problems. This is a series of removable clear plastic aligners designed to gradually adjust your teeth in as little as six to eight weeks. Dr. Casey Warren will provide you with three to four sets of custom aligners. You will need to switch to a new set every two weeks. Each new pair of aligners will bring your teeth one step closer to their ideal position.

More significant alignment issues might require Dr. Casey Warren to install traditional braces with metal brackets, wires, and special orthodontic hardware. If you feel uncomfortable with the appearance of braces hardware in your smile, Dr. Casey Warren can apply a special porcelain glaze to some of the braces components. It can be shaded to a match with your natural enamel, decreasing the visibility of your braces.
