Orthodontist Pennington NJ
Very few people are born with a “perfect smile”. The alignment and spacing of teeth are a common problem and cosmetic concern for people. Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that focuses on straightening teeth and the alignment of the bite.
The office of Donna Vagnozzi-Bucci, DMD, PC provides customized orthodontic treatment for patients. After a thorough evaluation and diagnosis, your dentist will recommend the right type of treatment for you. We are a provider of Invisalign to offer our patients a straighter smile using the most advanced invisible braces system available.
Orthodontic treatment typically happens during teenage years. However, many adults need orthodontic treatment as part of restorative dentistry or a full mouth rehabilitation. Improperly aligned teeth are more than a cosmetic concern. Food and plaque can become trapped between teeth, leading to tooth decay and gum disease. Malocclusion, or an unbalanced bite, can contribute to teeth grinding, headaches and TMJ problems.
Orthodontic treatment ranges from person to person. It can include the use of either metal or clear braces. Our dentists may also straighten teeth without braces by using dental crowns, porcelain veneers, dental implants or other types of dental restorations.
Orthodontics can treat:
- Crowded Teeth
- Spaces Between Teeth
- Narrow Tooth Arches
- Intrusive Teeth
- Malocclusion (improper bite)
Our dental team will work with you to help you or your child maintain proper oral hygiene throughout your orthodontic treatment. Caring for braces can be a challenge, especially for adolescents. Our staff will teach you the proper techniques to care for your braces and teeth.
