You’ve Got Options...

Orthodontic therapy offers several advantages, such as improved oral health, an enhanced facial aesthetic, and the likelihood of your teeth enduring throughout your lifetime.

Wondering if you require orthodontic attention? Here are some indicators:

  • Overbite: This occurs when your upper teeth extend significantly beyond your lower teeth.
  • Spacing: Noticeable gaps or openings between your teeth.
  • Underbite: A condition where your lower teeth protrude past your upper teeth.
  • Crowding: Teeth that overlap or are so close together that flossing becomes a challenge.
  • Crossbite: A misalignment of the bite, where the upper and lower teeth do not align properly for a comfortable bite.

Treatment Options:

Traditional Braces:

When people think of braces, the image that often comes to mind is the traditional metal brackets and wires. Nowadays, these devices have been refined to be smaller, less visible, and just as efficient in straightening teeth. They’re also simpler to maintain and wear comfortably.

Clear Brackets:

For those considering traditional braces but seeking a less noticeable option, clear brackets are available. Especially favored by adult patients, these brackets offer the effectiveness of traditional orthodontics with a more subtle appearance. They’re hardly noticeable at a glance, making them an excellent choice for those who wish to maintain a more natural look during treatment.

Clear Aligners - Invisalign:

Invisalign aligners are custom-made to progressively move your teeth into their correct positions. These clear aligners are almost invisible, fit closely over your teeth, and can be removed for eating, as well as for regular brushing and flossing, ensuring your oral hygiene routine can continue as normal.

Lingual Braces:

An option for those seeking the utmost in discretion, lingual braces are attached to the inside surfaces of your teeth, hiding them from view. They offer a great alternative to traditional braces, combining effectiveness with invisibility, and are a preferred option not just for adults but also for teens engaged in sports or music activities, as they minimize inner cheek irritation.

Frequently Asked Questions

You might need orthodontic treatment if you have an overbite, underbite, crossbite, crowding, or noticeable gaps between your teeth. These conditions can affect not only the appearance of your smile but also your oral health and function. A consultation with an orthodontist can determine if treatment is right for you.

Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for children and teenagers; adults can benefit from it too. However, early evaluation and potential treatment can have significant benefits. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that children have their first check-up with an orthodontist no later than age 7. Yet, orthodontic treatment can be successful at any age, and about one in every five orthodontic patients today is over the age of 21.

The duration of orthodontic treatment can vary widely depending on the individual’s specific needs, the type of treatment selected, and how well the patient complies with care instructions. On average, traditional braces are worn for about 18 to 24 months, but treatment can be shorter or longer depending on the case’s complexity.

Yes, you can continue to play sports and musical instruments with braces, but it might require some adjustments. For sports, it’s important to wear a mouthguard to protect your braces and your mouth from potential injuries. For wind or brass instruments, it may take some time to adjust, but many orthodontic patients adjust quickly and continue to play without significant issues.

Braces consist of metal or ceramic brackets attached to the teeth, connected by wires to adjust teeth positioning. They are very effective for treating a wide range of orthodontic issues but are visually noticeable. Clear aligners, like Invisalign, are nearly invisible, removable trays that gradually move teeth into place. They’re less noticeable and allow for easier eating and cleaning, but may not be suitable for all orthodontic conditions. Your orthodontist can help you decide which option is best for your specific needs.
