Crooked Teeth

Happy and smiling couple are holding an invisaligner.

Many patients consider crooked teeth a cosmetic issue, but misaligned teeth can be the cause of, or contribute to, a variety of dental health problems: tooth decay, gum disease, bite disorders and TMJ.

District Dental Solutions offers treatment options for crooked and misaligned teeth, including invisible braces. Dr. John and Dr. Jeremi Arroyo will take the time to perform a thorough evaluation of your dental health and recommend the most suitable treatment for straightening your smile and improving your oral health.

Treating Crooked Teeth with Orthodontics

Orthodontia is the most common treatment method for crooked teeth and can be completed using traditional metal braces or invisible braces, depending on the severity of the case and desired outcome.

Drs. John and Jeremi Arroyo are Washington, DC Invisalign® providers and often recommend this treatment option for those who can benefit from mild to moderate orthodontia. While most enjoy the benefit of quick and “invisible” treatment for their crooked teeth, Invisalign provides several other key benefits to patients:

  • Removable clear trays allow you to eat whatever you want
  • Improved hygiene (when compared to traditional metal braces) because you can brush and floss normally
  • Smooth plastic instead of sharp metal means more comfortable treatment
  • Convenience of visiting our Washington, DC dentist office to monitor treatment instead of specialist

Treating Crooked Teeth Without Braces

There are other treatment options that can address teeth that are misaligned, without the need for orthodontia. Dr. John and Dr. Jeremi Arroyo can discuss the best solution for your personal dental health and cosmetic goals after a thorough examination. Treatment options can include:

  • Dental crowns
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Tooth bonding
