Straight teeth and a perfect smile can do wonders for your confidence. Some people have naturally straight teeth but you don’t need to be concerned if you don’t. It is possible to achieve that perfect smile through orthodontal treatments.
If you want to correct your bite and straighten your teeth, don’t hesitate to contact us at Peters Family Dentistry. Our experienced dentist has handled several orthodontist treatments. He will examine your teeth carefully and determine which treatment will be ideal for you.
Invisalign are aligners made from safe, clear plastic material. They are custom-made for every patient. Each set of aligners are different, designed to straighten the teeth in stages. Patients wear one set for two weeks before they switch to the next set of aligners.
Invisalign aligners are removable. You can take them out when you eat, drink, or brush your teeth. The aligners need to stay on your teeth for 22 hours every day for the best results. You will meet with our dentist at pre-determined times during the alignment process. This ensures the treatment is always on track.
Traditional braces are suitable for people who don’t mind metal braces or have a severe overbite. Our dentist will let you know if this treatment is right for you. He will explain the process, provide maintenance instructions, and keep an eye on the progress. Anyone can be a good candidate for this treatment as long as their teeth can handle it.
Braces apply constant pressure on the teeth over an extended period of time to guide them back into a good alignment. During application, our dentist will apply metal braces to your teeth at predetermined locations. Every bracket has wings that will hold some elastic bands that hold the archwire in place.
Prevention is always better than cure. Why spend years trying to straighten your fully developed teeth when you can ensure they grow straight naturally? Crooked teeth and bad jaw problems are often found in children between the ages of 5 to 15. If you correct these problems before they have the chance to damage your child’s teeth, they won’t need orthodontic braces in the future.
Myobrace is a pre-orthodontic treatment similar to traditional braces but designed to be a preventative tool. This treatment corrects the underlying problems that cause misalignment and jaw issues. It encourages natural growth and development while eliminating poor habits or posture. For this treatment, our dentist will provide a customized set of intra-oral devices. The treatment is ideally suited for children between 3 years to 15 years of age.
