Straighter Teeth Faster with Orthodontic Treatment
While crooked teeth can sometimes be visibly embarrassing, they can also have a profound effect on your bite’s function and the health of your teeth and gums. Straightening teeth isn’t just about improving your smile’s appearance, but also about helping to preserve your long-term oral health. Our team offers two options to correct uneven smiles: braces and ClearCorrect®.
For patients with more substantial cases of misalignment, we can correct crooked, crowded, and overlapping teeth with braces. We begin by attaching brackets to the front-facing sides of each tooth. We then affix a portion of an arch wire to each bracket with a band. During periodic visits, we adjust tension in the arch wire to shift the teeth into optimal positions. Treatment takes about two years, as the jawbone must reform around the new positions of your teeth.
How ClearCorrect® Aligners Work
We don’t use brackets and wires at all! Instead, a series of custom-made aligners will be crafted from a clear and BPA-free material. Each set helps shift the position of the teeth, and a new set is worn every two weeks. They’re comfortable, removable, and offer straighter smiles in as little as one year for some patients! You can learn more about them by visiting our ClearCorrect® page.
