Proven and time-tested to address everything from misaligned bites, to gaps in front teeth, to overcrowding, traditional braces have been a treatment standard for many decades now. This orthodontic service utilizes many metal brackets, all of which are bonded to each tooth individually, including back teeth, which are very important in more severe cases. It’s fair to say that traditional braces offer some of the most notable benefits when it comes to long-term results, especially if you have severe complications to address.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Want to avoid all traditional metal orthodontics? We also offer Invisalign clear aligners if you’re someone who cannot stand the idea of wearing traditional braces. With Invisalign, we design a series of clear plastic trays. Each pair is worn for a minimum of 22 hours per day over the next 12 to 18 months depending on your needs. Every two weeks, you’ll switch to the next pair in your set until you’ve worn every pair – it’s that simple! Since all trays are removable, you can eat the foods you enjoy and maintain your oral care routine. Invisalign is best suited for patients with mild to moderate levels of misalignment.
Would you prefer to hide your braces, despite the fact that you have smile concerns that metal braces would resolve? It’s possible to make your treatment far less noticeable thanks to ceramic braces and transparent materials. With clear brackets, you can complete your orthodontic treatment while maintaining your confidence! Keep in mind that patients with very complicated or severe misalignment will need to rely on traditional metal braces since they are more flexible. We’ll confirm if this is the case during your consultation.
With self-ligating braces, you can hide your orthodontic treatment much more easily. Like traditional braces, self-ligating braces come with brackets that are adhered to individual teeth. However, the main difference is they contain a sliding mechanism that attaches the wires to the brackets. This allows them to move naturally with teeth, ensuring a more comfortable realignment process that requires less time and does not sacrifice your results. On top of improved comfort during tightenings, you can lower your risk of enamel erosion.
Is your child between six and nine years of age? Between these ages, it’s possible that they will need orthodontic treatment to improve the development of their jaw and allow permanent teeth to erupt properly. Furthermore, pediatric orthodontics help develop the symbiotic relationship between their upper and lower jaws. We provide expanders, growth appliances, and partial braces at our office. It’s worth noting that pediatric orthodontics can only be considered when their baby teeth have fully erupted and started to make room for permanent teeth.
It’s surprising to most people when they find out that one in four orthodontic patients is actually an adult! However, it’s no surprise to the Simply Orthodontics team since they treat adults every day. Protecting your oral health at all ages should be a simple process, regardless of the treatment you need. Whether you’re considering traditional braces, Invisalign clear aligners, or a different option altogether to address crooked teeth you never got to resolve or relapses from a previous treatment, we’re here to help! We’ll make sure you have a treatment option that fits your smile goals and lifestyle needs.
When we talk about orthodontic “appliances,” what exactly do we mean? For the most part, it refers to retainers that are worn after the traditional braces come off and have done their job. It can also refer to expanders, which widen the hard palate of the mouth to create room for adult teeth. Additionally, it can refer to fixed retainers, which are often used for front teeth to prevent them from becoming crooked again. Whatever service it is that you need, we’ll break down their functions in detail and answer any questions you might have.
When you need a form of orthodontics that focuses mainly on the alignment of the teeth and the dental arches, specifically the maxilla and the mandible, dentofacial orthopedics is your answer. Orthodontists have the ability to make adjustments to the way facial bones grow, not just change the positions of teeth. For example, if a child has a misaligned jaw, they can largely benefit from a dentofacial orthopedic appliance that prevents complications later in their life. This can be done for a palate/lower jaw expander or headgear.
