The alignment of your teeth plays an important role in your oral function and the appearance of your smile. Even minor misalignments with your teeth can leave you with an unappealing smile, as well as a mouth that is increasingly prone to problems with dental attrition and dental fractures.

In many of these cases, Dr. Catherine Scheurer McDevitt can correct the alignment of your teeth with some form of braces. The one she recommends for you will be based on the severity of your alignment problem and your personal preference.

Minor alignment problems might be corrected with a removable style of clear plastic aligners such as Invisalign®. This popular orthodontic option can gradually adjust your teeth in as little as six to eight weeks. You will need to switch to a new set of clear plastic aligners every two weeks. Each set is tuned one step closer to your ideal smile.

More significant alignment problems will likely require Dr. Scheurer McDevitt to install traditional braces in your mouth. You might be interested in having her glaze the visible braces hardware with a special dental porcelain material. It that can be shaded to match your natural tooth enamel making it harder for the casual observer to even notice you have braces.
