Dentistry and Orthodontics
What Is Orthodontics?
The field of dentistry known as orthodontics focuses on detecting, diagnosing, and correcting irregularities of the face or mouth in addition to preventing them.
The emphasis is placed on the way you bite as well as the positioning of your teeth. The use of traditional braces or Invisalign as part of orthodontic treatment are both viable options.
When you look in the mirror in a few months, think about how your smile will look and how it will make you feel.
It is time to give your crooked teeth their ultimate farewell and to welcome a stunning new smile into your life.
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Orthodontics, where it is our mission to provide both children and adults with the highest quality orthodontic care in an atmosphere that is welcoming to families.
We have firsthand knowledge that an attractive grin may have a significant impact on a person’s sense of well-being and confidence.
That is why each of our dental offices puts in a lot of effort to ensure that each of our patients leaves with a wonderful smile.
During your appointment, a friendly orthodontist will examine your smile and chat to you about a number of different treatment choices that can be adapted to meet your specific requirements.
When considering braces, there are a few different approaches that can be taken to treat your teeth, and only an orthodontist who has completed their full training will have the additional years of education beyond dental school that are required to determine which type of braces will work best for you.
At the time of your initial consultation, you will have the opportunity to select from a variety of orthodontic treatment options, including Invisalign®, Sure-Smile, tooth-colored braces (ceramic brackets), braces that go behind the teeth (lingual braces), and conventional braces.
Traditional braces consist of standard metal brackets that are placed on your teeth with an adhesive and connected by wire. They require periodic tightening every 4-6 weeks so steady pressure can gradually straighten your teeth and align your jaw. While metal braces brackets are still the most common orthodontic option. Find out if you qualify for this treatment from your orthodontist.
Invisalign & Clear Braces
A series of aligners used in Invisalign therapy are changed out approximately every two weeks.
In order to gently move teeth into their proper positions, each aligner is specifically made using precise calculations.
Adult patients and some teenagers with specific orthodontic bite issues can use the Invisalign system.
A type of corrective jaw surgery known as orthognathic surgery, which is also frequently referred to as surgical orthodontics, is used to cure skeletal abnormalities that affect a person’s ability to bite, chew, or talk. This type of surgery is known as orthognathic surgery.
Orthodontic treatment is carried out both before and after surgery in order to guarantee that the top and lower teeth are aligned correctly.
When the distances the teeth need to be moved are too small to warrant a different method, accelerated braces (also known as 4–12 week braces) are employed. Our expedited braces are exceptionally quick and simple to put on. Accelerated braces can produce results in as little as one month and are less expensive than the invisible braces system. For optimal results, the accelerated braces must be worn for at least 8 hours each day.
3-D Imaging & Model Lab
Technology has helped us make a lot of progress, especially in medicine and dentistry. 3D imaging is one way that orthodontists are changing the way they treat their patients. 3D imaging is a non-invasive method that gives a better picture of the anatomy of the teeth. This has changed how patients feel, how orthodontics are done, and how treatment plans are made.
Our aim is to deliver treatment of an unparalleled level of excellence, honesty in each and every aspect of the orthodontic experience, outstanding care for patients, and remarkable support for the community.
Not only are we proud of the quality of our orthodontic work, but also of the excellent care that we provide for each of our patients.
