Having straight teeth boosts your confidence and your oral health, but sometimes what stands in the way of having completely straight teeth is just one or two misaligned teeth. There are multiple approaches that an orthodontist can take for straightening individual teeth.

Just like any other alignment issues, braces can be used to move one or two crooked teeth. The braces can be a full set or partial braces, where the brackets and wires would only be in the area needing treatment. Although traditional braces can be used for small alignment issues, they might not be necessary, and alternative methods could be implemented.

Another orthodontic approach to straightening only one or two teeth is using retainers. Retainers can be either removable or fixed, and both are great options for singular misalignments. Removable retainers are a great option since they can be taken out for professional or social events, yet can still be worn enough to fix misalignment. Fixed retainers provide the benefit of amazing long-term results without the chance of misplacing or forgetting the retainer.

Invisalign is another option that would gradually move any misaligned teeth into the proper position using clear, removable aligners. This is a great solution to fixing one or two crooked teeth since the aligners are more discreet than traditional braces, yet still straighten the teeth. Additionally, if there are no bite issues and the teeth are not severely misaligned, Invisalign will typically take less time to complete than traditional braces.
