Patients ask Kennesaw dentists, "Do you provide treatment for protrusive teeth?"
Patients in Kennesaw and the surrounding areas know they can count on the 32 Dental team to answer their questions. We are often asked, "Do you provide treatment for protrusive teeth?" Our team, comprised of respected dentists Drs. Lan Vo and Sean Breckley, will respond with a resounding, "Yes." We can provide an innovative orthodontic treatment called Invisalign to straighten teeth and improve malocclusion.
Using a pacifier or thumb sucking as a child could lead to an upper protrusion or overjet. This means the upper front teeth are pushed outward. Invisalign includes a series of clear plastic aligner trays that gently move the teeth into proper position over time. Invisalign can be ideal for mild to moderate misalignment of the bite and crowded or overlapping teeth.
Types of malocclusion
A normal bite involves the upper teeth protruding slightly over the lower teeth. Malocclusion is an abnormal bite, which is classified by how the upper and lower teeth fit together. There are many types of malocclusion including crowded teeth, open bites, overbites, underbite, and cross bites.
Patients may have crowded teeth when there is not enough room for the teeth to grow. Crowding can prevent permanent teeth from coming in properly or becoming impacted. Wisdom teeth often become impacted and are recommended for removal.
With open bites, the molars fit together but the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. An overbite is present when the upper front teeth reach over the lower front teeth. Patients may have underbite when the lower front teeth protrude farther forward than the upper front teeth. When any or all of the upper teeth fit in the wrong side of the lower teeth, it is a cross bite.
Seeking treatment for malocclusion
With Invisalign, we can treat malocclusion. In contrast to traditional metal wires and braces, patients can look forward to smooth, plastic aligners that are comfortable to wear. Treatment usually lasts 12 to 18 months.
Do you want to explore your candidacy for Invisalign? If you do, we recommend scheduling a consultation appointment with Dr. Vo or Dr. Breckley by calling 770-423-1132 today.
Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.
Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.
My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.
Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!
Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
