How to Fix One Crooked Tooth

by | Feb 27, 2024 | Orthodontics, Treatment Options

We often have patients who want to fix one crooked tooth that they notice when they smile.  If you’ve noticed this in the mirror and wondered if you should see an orthodontist, remember no problem is too small.  The experience, technology, and tools that we have can customize an affordable treatment for our patients. There are options for you!  

1. Invisalign: A short round of Invisalign treatment can align 1-2 crooked teeth in a few months.  This is a great option for adults who had braces as a kid, lost their retainer, and now want a simple correction.

2. Clear braces: This is a more esthetic option than metal braces and works exactly the same as metal braces. It’s important to take the first step and schedule a free consultation with your orthodontist to see how many teeth need braces and for how long.  You will be surprised how quickly we can align the teeth if we have narrowed goals on 1-2 teeth.

3. Metal braces: The old ‘tried and true’ tool that orthodontists have mastered.  Maybe you only  need the bottom braces if you’re concerns are 1 tooth on the lower.  Maybe you need upper and lower to properly align the teeth while preserving a functional bite. 

Tooth movements are an important biological process that should be supervised by an orthodontic professional.  The landscape in orthodontics has changed largely due to advances in technology.  If you want to correct that one crooked tooth, call our office today at 734-392-8288 or email us at [email protected] to schedule your free orthodontic consultation today.
