Why Doctor Yu is for You!

Clear Aligners

After getting engaged to the man of my dreams, I wanted to be sure I could smile with confidence in our wedding photos. I have always wanted braces but never wanted to deal with the bulky appearance of wire braces as my teeth shifted. As an adult, I wanted an option that was more discreet. A friend recommended I call Dr. Yu. His solution involved clear aligners to straighten my smile and I’m beyond happy with the results. It worked much quicker than I thought. My special day was perfect and I have the photos to prove it. Thank you Dr. Yu!

A Non-Invasive Straightening Option

At Grand Avenue Smiles, we are pleased to provide orthodontic aligners as a safe, effective, and discreet option for straightening misaligned teeth. Achieve a healthy, beautiful smile using this non-invasive, aesthetic straightening option.

Traditional orthodontic treatment often includes braces, with unattractive metal brackets and bulky silver wires. However, removable aligners are worn over the teeth and can be removed to allow you to eat, brush, and floss normally during your orthodontic treatment. Aligners are a comfortable, convenient, and easy to use solution for straightening your teeth.

Orthodontic aligners provide other health benefits in addition to straightening teeth. Teeth that are crowded, gapped, or misaligned are more difficult to keep properly cleaned and flossed. Over time, this can lead to a higher rate of tooth decay. Crowded and misaligned teeth are also more prone to issues like cracking and wear, due to improper occlusion (bite).

Straightening your teeth with orthodontic aligners can protect against these issues. Additionally, misaligned teeth are more likely to develop periodontal (gum) issues. Orthodontic treatment can help keep gums firm around the teeth, protecting against bacterial infections that can lead to periodontal disease.

By choosing orthodontic aligners to straighten your teeth, you can avoid many of the issues commonly associated with traditional braces. Our patients who choose orthodontic aligner treatment are much less prone to experiencing pain, discomfort, or mouth sores than those with traditional metal braces. Additionally, the ability to remove your aligners to allow proper brushing and flossing, can lead to a reduced rate of plaque buildup and tooth decay.

At Grand Avenue Smiles, we can help you achieve straight teeth and a beautiful, healthy smile with orthodontic aligners. For more information or to schedule a consultation, contact our office.
