Today’s orthodontic treatment is faster, more comfortable, and more fashionable than ever before for people of all ages. Using some of the newest orthodontic and cosmetic techniques, we can provide you with straight teeth in the comfort of a general dentist office.
When we think of braces we usually think of children. But now more than ever, adults are wearing braces too. They're even fashionable. Adults appreciate how braces can improve their smiles, help them keep their teeth for a lifetime and make them feel more confident. Orthodontic treatment as an adult can dramatically improve your personal appearance, self-esteem and your health. Crooked teeth and a bad bite can contribute to gum disease and bone loss, tooth decay, abnormal wear, headaches and TMJ pain.
A My Dentist Orthodontist will examine your teeth and recommend orthodontic treatment options that can correct your tooth and jaw alignment, plus improve the attractiveness of your smile. We can place metal or clear braces, depending on your needs and preferences. In many cases, orthodontic treatment is the least intrusive and longest-lasting option for improving the look of your smile.
During your consultation exam, we will discuss the best possible treatments for your individual needs, outline a treatment plan, estimate the time of treatment expected and the approximate cost.The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children be evaluated by their dentist for possible orthodontic problems by age 7. Because the permanent molars and incisors usually are in the mouth by then, potential loss of space may be able to be treated. This interceptive technique may shorten future orthodontic treatment.
Many children begin orthodontics when all or most of the primary teeth have been lost, typically, around 10-13 years old. At this age they are usually excited to wear braces.
Invisalign gives you the smile you’ve always wanted by using a series of clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth. The course of treatment involves changing your aligner approximately every two weeks, moving your teeth into a straighter position, step by step, until you have a more beautiful smile. Unlike traditional braces, Invisalign can be removed while you eat and brush your teeth. An average Invisalign treatment lasts about a year.
