One of the attributes of a perfect smile is straight teeth. Beyond a prettier smile, though, there are oral health reasons for straight teeth. Misaligned teeth are responsible for a variety of oral health issues. Orthodontic treatment from Engineered Smiles straightens teeth, eliminating those problems and giving you a nicer smile.

For decades, traditional braces with metal brackets and wires have been the standard for moving teeth into the best position. More recently, less invasive options have proven to be successful for anterior misalignment and cosmetic purposes. Mildly irregular alignment can be corrected with aligners, which provide an easier and more discreet way to straighten teeth.

Traditional braces are still used to treat severe cases of misalignment and problems with posterior teeth. After assessing the bite and position of your teeth, your dentist can make a determination regarding the appropriateness of aligners or traditional braces to correct your misalignment

Causes and Cures for Misaligned Teeth

Not everyone is born with teeth that will automatically erupt perfectly straight. Some individuals will be fortunate in that way, and others will have misalignment for one or many reasons. Physical issues including such variables as bone growth and tooth size can be a factor.

Crowding occurs when the jawbone is too small to accommodate larger sized teeth. Conversely, smaller teeth in a larger jawbone create small gaps between teeth. In both situations, food traps are created between the teeth, making them more susceptible to decay and gingivitis.

Your individual habits also contribute to repositioning of your teeth. Children who suck their thumbs at an early age can cause the growing bone to be shaped differently. If your baby is allowed to suck a bottle for a prolonged period of time, they are prone to the same thing. This can lead to the misalignment of anterior teeth.

The method used for straightening teeth depends on the severity of the misalignment. When the teeth are slightly out of alignment, it may be sufficient to use aligners to straighten them. This is often the case for cosmetic orthodontics. However, some issues such as severe crowding may need a more traditional approach.

If you or one of your children have misaligned teeth and would like to know more about options for straightening them, schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Wang. He will examine your teeth and make an assessment regarding the most effective treatment for getting your teeth back into alignment and getting a straight smile.

    Absolutely love this place, I’ve been coming here for the last two years. I didn’t have insurance when I first started, and they had a great payment plan that they were able to let me work with. I see Jennifer, and she is the absolute best! Dr. Wang and his entire staff have always been extremely friendly and helpful. I will continue coming back to this location for years to come come!

    Like most people I don't particularly enjoy going to the dentist. The staff, hygienists, and Dr. Wang himself make this practice the best one I have ever gone to. I have been I patient for over a year now. I recently made the decision to get a filling from another dentist redone. That filling had me terrified because my last dentist didn't properly prep me. I told Dr. Wang and he listened very attentively and took the necessary steps to make sure I was properly numbed and fixed my filling and I didn't feel a thing! The shop itself is very clean and organized. It's and old Bank building and they cleverly used the value for the X-ray room. A big shout out to Jennifer for being great and very gentle with my cleanings. Also, the office manager Autumn, for always working with insurance for me and getting the financials as low as possible without me having to ask. I have recommended several people to this practice and all have had great experiences and continue to go back. This practice is absolutely worth checking out!

    Dr. Wang and his amazing technology create incredible results. I have had an implant and a crown and they are perfect replicas of my original teeth, only healthy. Also, the work was efficient and practically pain free!! He and his support staff are all kind and gentle. This practice is highly recommended both by me and by my husband!

    Dr Wang went above and beyond to make sure I thoroughly understood his proposed treatment plan for a front tooth implant. He spent almost an hour on the phone with me addressing all my questions and concerns and outlining his reasons for choosing a particular method or timeline. He was patient and specific. The following day he spent even more of his time demonstrating some of the incredible technology he would be using to ensure success of the procedure. He is incredibly smart and his engineering knowledge seems to be coming in handy!! Wonderful dentist with a broad range of talent!

    I’ve continued to use Dr. Wang as my dentist for several years and have always been more than happy with him. His staff is excellent and Jennifer, my dental hygienist, was friendly and did a great job. Dr Wang is always thorough and takes the time to answer all the questions I have - I trust him and continue to refer friends, family and coworkers to him and they have always been happy to say the least!

    Margo W.

    I could not get my regular dentist and Dr Wang popped up on Google as if by magic! I have a severe phobia about dentists but the glowing reviews about Dr Wang and his staff gave me courage to make that call after years of putting off the dentist. I was still anxious as I arrived for my appointment (I would not have gone but for the pain I was in) Dr. Wang was so personable cheerful and took his time explaining the procedure. He was very gentle. Even though I can't remember their names I can't say enough about his staff who displayed the same patience and encouragement. No one has paid me to do this review. It's all my true feelings. Dr Wang you have a patient for life in me
