Treatment Options for Crooked Teeth in Washington, DC

Your crooked, misaligned teeth cause more than just cosmetic concerns inside of your mouth. Additionally, crooked teeth mess with the functionality of your smile. Your teeth, gums, and jawbone were designed to work together when performing daily tasks such as chewing or speaking. When your teeth are crooked, this creates unintended pressure points in your mouth that can cause long-term issues like dental damage, jaw pain, and even an increased risk for gum disease. We want to ensure that your crooked teeth receive the treatment that they need so that you can feel confident when showing off your smile while also avoiding future dental concerns.

Invisalign is an excellent option for patients seeking to straighten their smiles. It offers many benefits that traditional orthodontic solutions simply do not. Dr. Halim has helped many patients achieve their dream smiles with Invisalign; however, it is only utilized for patients with mild to moderate orthodontic concerns. Invisalign can treat dental concerns like:

  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites
  • Crooked teeth
  • Gapped teeth

During your initial consultation. Dr. Halim will evaluate your smile to ensure that your teeth, gums, and jawbone are strong enough to undergo orthodontic treatment. If you are in need of more extensive orthodontic care than Invisalign can provide, Dr. Halim will make recommendations accordingly.
