How to Treat Crooked Teeth

Dr. Leah Romay offers a wide range of treatment options for crooked teeth in her Glyndon, Maryland dental office.

Dr. Romay is dedicated to helping patients get a straighter, healthier, and more beautiful smile. She collaborates with patients as individuals to create an effective treatment plan for the best results. Straightening teeth can often be a preventative measure to stop further dental problems from developing. Because it is difficult to clean between crooked teeth, plaque can easily build up and spread tooth decay or gum disease.

If you want to prevent future oral health problems, schedule regular dental visits with Dr. Romay online or call 410.220.4680 today. Dental cleanings and exams help our dentists spot early signs of tooth decay and gum disease before they worsen.

Early Preventative Care

In your child’s early development, bad oral health habits like chewing on objects or thumb sucking may contribute to the development of crooked teeth later on. Overcrowded teeth or abnormal jaw development are also factors that can contribute to crooked or misaligned teeth. It is important to treat crooked teeth in their earliest stages to avoid further oral health problems, which is why orthodontic treatment with braces benefits children.

Orthodontic Treatment

Invisalign clear aligners are a great way for teen and adult patients to gradually straighten their crooked teeth over time. In addition, Invisalign aligners are removable so they can be cleaned easily. Invisalign treatment may also be completed in less time than other more traditional orthodontic treatments and it does not have any dietary restrictions. Patients can eat all of the foods that they love while straightening their teeth.

Cosmetic Treatment

Porcelain veneers and tooth bonding are often used to cover slightly crooked or misaligned teeth for a natural end-result. We craft our dental veneers from porcelain that reflect light for a natural-looking and long-lasting smile. Porcelain veneers can last up to 15 years with the right dental care. Our composite tooth bonding treatment utilizes a resin that is molded and shaped to change the size and shape of your teeth. This resin can be color-matched to blend in with natural teeth.
