Crooked teeth have you hiding your smile? For patients who need mild to moderate orthodontic treatment to address their concerns or problems, Smart Moves invisible braces may be the perfect solution. The dentists of Davis Family Dental Care in Bedford are Smart Moves providers and often recommends this as a cosmetic or restorative dental treatment option. Smart Moves can gently and gradually straighten teeth that are crooked or misaligned, correcting problems such as cross bite, over bite and underbite.

How Does Smart Moves Straighten Teeth?

Available for teens and adults, Smart Moves uses a series of clear retainers that are custom ordered by Drs. Davis from molds of your teeth and designed to move teeth into the desired position over a period of about a year. The aligners are custom designed using special CAD/CAM software that enables them to plan your treatment and create predictable results. Patients can enjoy several key benefits:
  • removable retainers allow easy brushing and flossing
  • smooth, plastic material is comfortable and does not irritate soft tissues
  • they are invisible and no one has to know you are wearing braces
Crooked teeth can go beyond being a cosmetic concern- they can have an impact on oral health. It is often difficult to effectively clean between teeth that are misaligned, increasing the chances of decay and tooth cavities or gum disease. They may also affect a patient’s bite, leading to temporomandibular joint issues, or TMJ, as pressure is placed in the wrong places to accommodate an imbalanced bite. If you have teeth that are crooked, or have concerns about your bite, schedule a consultation with Drs. Davis at their Bedford dentist office. They will perform a thorough exam and discuss the best options for restoring and maintaining your dental health.
