It’s a fact of nature that very few people are blessed with teeth and jaws that are perfectly aligned. Ideally, top teeth fit slightly over bottom teeth when the mouth is closed. This keeps chewing from wearing out the temporomandibular joint (TMJ), which can be quite painful. Unfortunately, though, many of us have teeth and jaws that aren’t well-aligned. Thankfully, since the 1800s, those suffering from severe misalignments have been able to find relief with braces and other orthodontic hardware. Dr. Victor Pardi, DDS — your local Greenwich orthodontist — would like to tell you about “Invisalign” orthodontics, a relatively new method of correcting dental misalignments that’s a lot subtler and a lot more comfortable than conventional braces.

As you probably know, braces are a combination of wires and tiny brackets that are attached to the front of your teeth. They work by moving your teeth gradually. Each time you visit the orthodontist, the wires are tightened a little more, repositioning teeth almost imperceptibly. As far as results go, braces work great and represent a tried and true tool in orthodontists’ toolbox. But they aren’t without disadvantages. Braces can be uncomfortable to wear, difficult to keep clean and, to some, unsightly. Dr. Victor Pardi, DDS — your local Greenwich orthodontist — has another tool in his toolbox: invisalign. Invisalign works to straighten teeth via the same gradual pushing of braces, but because the system uses clear removable retainers instead of metal hardware, recipients of the treatment are able to avoid many of the drawbacks more traditional orthodontics. Not only are invisalign retainers basically invisible to people around you, they can also be popped in and out effortlessly, enabling you to thoroughly brush and floss your teeth. You will also remove your invisalign retainer when you eat, so no need to worry about avoiding certain kinds of hard or sticky foods.

It’s important to know that Invisalign isn’t right for everyone. Victor Pardi, DDS, will need to have a look at your teeth in order to gauge whether or not your orthodontic needs will best be addressed in this way. You won’t know until you come in for a checkup!

Normally, we don’t think about how we bite, or how our teeth and jaws are aligned, if we aren’t feeling any pain or discomfort. Our Greenwich orthodontist, Victor Pardi, DDS, educates all his patients, explaining that finding the most appropriate solutions to fix tooth and jaw alignment problems is the best way to prevent teeth from further damage. Tooth and jaw alignment problems need to be fixed as soon as symptoms appear because if left untreated, a more serious, underlying dental problem may develop. Neglecting an exam with our Greenwich orthodontist may either worsen an undetected health problem or cause you to spend thousands of dollars for a major more complicated dental procedure.

This kind of specialized dental work falls under cosmetic dentistry or more commonly known as orthodontic dentistry, so when you suspect tooth or jaw alignment problems in your family, you know who to turn to. For over fifteen years, our Greenwich orthodontist has been providing the best solutions to fixing all types of tooth and jaw alignment problems. Crossbite, overbite and underbite are just three of the most common terms used by orthodontists to describe alignment problems.

Braces can indeed correct underbites, given the level of the underbite is small enough. More dramatic underbites, however, often require surgery to fix the jaw bones around the mouth. Our orthodontic experts know that crooked, misaligned teeth not only interfere with proper chewing, but make brushing and flossing difficult as well. It is very important to fix these teeth to avoid further risk of tooth decay and accumulation of plague. Our Greenwich orthodontist uses braces to move crooked or misaligned teeth slowly to their original alignment. They not only straighten your crooked teeth, helping with jaw re-alignment, but correct dental health and function.

Whether your teeth are crooked or crowded, or your upper and lower jaws are out of alignment, the goal of our Greenwich orthodontist is to fix the problem. Braces apply constant pressure on each tooth in the desired direction and adjustments to the pressure will be made in follow up visits. These adjustments allow Dr. Pardi to control the slow movement of the teeth until the misalignment is corrected. Braces are a very effective way to address your crooked teeth problem and will give you the healthy results you deserve.
