Maintaining Your Bite, Health & Smile

Malocclusion occurs when there are problems with the size or shape of the jaw. This causes the upper and lower teeth do not line up correctly. In plain terms, this means that you have crooked teeth. The two main ways this happens is there was either not enough space in the jaw to allow teeth to grow, causing an overlap like people standing in a crowded elevator. There could also have been too much space in the jaw, allowing the teeth to drift out of place.

If you are struggling with crooked teeth, King Centre Dental is here to help. For a better and brighter smile, call our Alexandria dentists at (703) 854-9955.

Orthodontics Aren't Just for Looks

Complications of malocclusion can have serious impacts on your overall health and wellness. Not addressing these problems can lead to:

  • Tooth decay
  • Tooth loss
  • Problems with bite or eating
  • Difficulty speaking

If identified early in children, braces or corrective jaw apparatuses may be applied to help guide the child's teeth in the right direction, giving them the confidence to succeed in school and around their peers. But braces aren’t just for children, as they are effective at treating adults as well.

Invisalign® - A Clear Alternative to Metal Braces

Back in the day, the only solution to crooked teeth was metal braces. Thanks to the great leaps in dental technology, you now have the option of Invisalign®, a comfortable solution to misaligned or crowded teeth. These transparent aligners can straighten teeth without wires or brackets. They are virtually undetectable, which means no one will know you are wearing them.

Other benefits of Invisalign® include:

  • They can be removed anytime, making eating and drinking easier
  • They make oral hygiene simpler
  • They are more comfortable than traditional braces
  • They have a relatively short treatment time

How It Works

Invisalign® is designed to move your teeth in small steps until they are straightened in the position prescribed by the orthodontist. The length of the treatment varies from person to person but treatment averages about six months for teens and a year for adults.

The treatment process starts with a thorough examination. We will then create a customized treatment plan detailing the exact movements of your teeth and how long you should wear your Invisalign®. We input a series of instructions for your custom-made aligners and you will be instructed to wear each aligner for about two weeks, removing them only when eating, brushing, and flossing. With each new set of aligners, your teeth are expected to move gradually into place until the final alignment is attained.
