Our knowledgeable team of dentists can evaluate your smile and determine your need for orthodontic treatment. The problems that require orthodontic treatment could be:
It is very important to know that problems that are a result of under growth or over growth of the upper or lower jaw (overbite, under bite, and open bite), are best treated when the patient is still growing. Make sure that you make your child’s orthodontic checkup appointment as early as possible. American Association of Orthodontics recommend an orthodontic checkup at the age of seven. All of the above problems can be successfully treated by your orthodontist using braces (clear or metal) and other appliances. An orthodontist is a specialist who has completed an additional three-year program after graduating from dental school. In our office we use the most technologically advanced appliances that reduce the time and possible discomfort associated with the treatment. We also offer the most aesthetic clear brackets available.
For those patients who want straight teeth but are not willing to wear braces, we offer Invisalign. With Invisalign a 3-D computer imaging technology maps the complete treatment from start to finish. From this plan, a series of custom- made aligners unique to you treatment is produced. You wear each aligner for about two weeks. During this time, the aligners gradually move your teeth. With each new aligner your teeth continue to straighten until they achieve the desired final position. Invisalign’s clear aligners are virtually invisible. That means you can always feel confident showing your smile, even while you are wearing your aligners to straighten your teeth. Since the aligner is removable, you can brush and floss normally, and do not need to worry about what you eat.
