Braces could be the way to go if you want a more conventional approach to straightening your teeth. We provide both traditional metal braces and more discreet ceramic braces that are created to closely match the color of your teeth. Clear brackets are used in ceramic braces, while metal brackets and wires are used in traditional metal braces.
Invisalign is an alternative to metal braces that employs a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually shift your teeth into place. Aligners are manufactured specifically for each patient, and patients typically change them out every few weeks. For patients who value aesthetics without compromising efficiency, Invisalign is a fantastic solution. In addition, because they can be removed, keeping up with regular dental care is less of a hassle.
Two-phase orthodontic treatment is used for cases where a single course of treatment would not be sufficient to achieve the desired results. Treatment of an existing problem with a fixed appliance, such as braces, concludes phase one. Phase two begins sometime after phase one and follows up on any outstanding issues and helps to maintain progress made thus far. If a child’s smile still has room to grow, but they need to get a head start on treatment, a two-phase treatment plan may be the best option.
After undergoing orthodontic treatment, it is normal practice to wear retainers to prevent the teeth from shifting back to their original position. Some retainers are attached to the back of your teeth, while others are removable and can be taken out at night. Depending on your preferences and requirements, our experts can advise you on the best option!
It’s necessary to be prepared in cases of an emergency, such as the rapid loss of a bracket due to an accident or the sudden onset of misalignment following an injury. Please contact us right away if you are experiencing an orthodontic emergency so that we can help you get things back on track as quickly as possible.
