Signs You May Need Orthodontic Care

There are a few signs that you may need personal attention from our staff for orthodontic treatment options. Firstly, if you are experiencing mouth breathing rather than normal nose breathing, it could result in the need for orthodontic care. Those who breathe through their mouth often cannot sustain the dynamics of proper tongue support to the upper teeth (dental arches), which often leads to issues in the mouth. Thumb sucking is another cause of crowded, misplaced, or blocked teeth, which is more commonly found in children. Jaw pain and popping sensations coming from your jaw also is a key indicator that there could be something wrong with your bite. This can also lead to difficulty chewing or biting food and even speech difficulties. If you have any of these signs, it’s best to see professionals at Paul Krause Dental so we can evaluate your mouth and decide if orthodontic care is right for you.

The Benefits of Orthodontic Care

There are many benefits that come from orthodontic care. Not only will you have a straighter, more attractive smile, but you will also find it easier to clean your teeth and avoid disease and tooth decay. In addition, properly aligned teeth can help you chew food more effectively and reduce the risk of developing temporomandibular joint dysfunction problems.

Orthodontics can fix:

  • Crowding
  • Spacing
  • Overbites
  • Underbites
  • Crossbites


Invisalign takes a modern approach to straightening teeth, using a custom-made series of aligners created for you and only you. These aligner trays are made of smooth, comfortable and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth. Wearing the aligners will gradually and gently shift your teeth into place, based on the exact movements your dentist or orthodontist plans out for you. There are no metal brackets to attach and no wires to tighten. You just pop in a new set of aligners approximately every two weeks, until your treatment is complete. You’ll achieve a great smile with little interference in your daily life. The best part about the whole process is that most people won’t even know you’re straightening your teeth.

How Invisalign works

Invisalign invisibly straightens your teeth with a series of custom-molded aligners. Forget everything you’ve heard about teeth straightening. Because now there’s breakthrough technology that lets you get the smile you always wanted without bands, brackets or wires. By using a series of clear removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every 2 weeks, your teeth will move—little by little, week by week—until they have moved to the final position your orthodontist or dentist has prescribed. Comfortable to wear, our aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.

Is Invisalign for Me?

Invisalign can be used to treat the vast majority of common problems for adults and teens. Whether your smile needs minor improvements or more extensive adjustments, Invisalign can certainly help. It’s successful in treating overly crowded or widely spaced teeth. It can also relieve more complex issues, including overbites, under-bites and even crossbites. In fact, an Invisalign Certified Orthodontist or Dentist can use Invisalign clear aligners in all or part of just about any treatment plan.
