Straight Talk on Straight Teeth from our Orthodontist
Simpson Dental Associates offers some straight talk on straight teeth: For patients in the Charleston, WV area who have misaligned teeth, there are many options available to move these teeth into proper alignment. Straightening teeth can make them more beautiful, easier to clean, and can even stabilize the bite. At Simpson Dental Associates, we offer traditional silver braces, clear ceramic braces, or Invisalign®, the new invisible braces that use clear aligners to straighten your teeth.
Braces Provide Children, Teens & Adults a Healthier Smile and Renewed Appearance
Tooth alignment can change at any age, so braces are not just for kids. Braces can be effective if your gums and bone structure are healthy, young and old alike. Simpson Dental offers a variety of treatments that are designed for different age groups. A healthier smile and renewed appearance can begin today. Orthodontic treatment can dramatically improve your self-esteem, correcting crooked teeth and a bad bite that can contribute to gum and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear of the tooth enamel and surfaces, headaches, and jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain.
Newer orthodontic techniques and appliances we use at Simpson Dental Associates greatly reduce discomfort levels, decrease the frequency of visits, shorten treatment time, and may allow you to choose from several options. Your options may include metal braces, translucent braces, or transparent aligners that can be worn at night to improve mild cases of misaligned teeth.
What to Expect at Your Initial Orthodontic Consultation
During the initial examination at Simpson Dental Associates, our dentists determine the best possible treatment for your individual needs. We outline the treatment plan, time of treatment expected, and the approximate cost during this initial examination. A large percentage of our patients are adults, who agree that it is never too late to improve their greatest asset—their smile.

INVISALIGN® – A Virtually Invisible way to Straighten your Teeth
Invisalign® offers a discreet way to straighten your smile with an orthodontic option that is more discreet than metal braces. Invisalign® is a revolutionary orthodontic treatment using virtually invisible clear aligners. These offer correction you need without metal brackets and wires to straighten your teeth. To correct the alignment of your teeth, patients wear a series of custom-made plastic aligners. Switching them approximately every two weeks, teeth are moved closer and closer to their proper positions in the mouth. During this time, patients see our dentists at Simpson Dental Associates, Drs. Mark and Christen Simpson, on a regular basis to check treatment progress.
Invisalign® is a great choice for patients who would like to maintain a natural, professional appearance during orthodontic treatment. Because the aligners are made of transparent plastic, they are nearly invisible and most people will not notice you are wearing aligners. The aligners are also very smooth and comfortable, as well as removable; this allows you to remove your aligners whenever you need to floss, brush, or eat.
