If you have a gap between teeth caused by malocclusion – poor smile alignment – our Des Moines, IA dentist’s office can help! Through Invisalign treatment, we can help you fix this and other issues discreetly. Your aligners can remain in place without attracting unwanted attention, and you can remove them at your convenience. We provide a variety of services that help people improve their appearance.

Those problems include a higher risk for TMJ disorder, as poor smile alignment can lead increased tension on your jaw joints and muscles. (more…)
