Orthodontic treatment is one of the most effective methods of correcting misaligned and crooked teeth. In addition to traditional wire appliances, there are presently other methods of dental therapy aimed at rectifying any dental discrepancies. The dentist is able to develop recommendations and formulate customized treatment plan with appropriate modifications specific to each patient’s unique needs.

Why Orthodontics?

The scientific area of orthodontics is centered on improving the functionality of the mouth along with enhancing the entire smile line and the appearance of the dentition. It is a suitably short-term investment for a lifetime of oral health and great aesthetics. Although the treatment is relatively longer than other methods of dental restorations, many patients choose this course of treatment due to the painless process and long-lasting results.

Treatment

One of the most common techniques is Invisalign ®, a system of plastic trays worn by the patient over a period of several months. Many dental discrepancies can be accurately remedied by using these discreet and removable aligners. The patient is instructed to properly apply the trays and maintain their cleanliness to prevent decay or debris from accumulating around and under the appliance. Other viable orthodontic methods are available to correct mild crowding and spacing flaws, and they include Damon ® brackets, metal braces and Simpli 5.

Patients who expect more immediate results are offered various options of tooth restorations such as bonding, veneers, crowns or bridges.

Bonding

Mild imperfections can be successfully amended by placing resin-based restorations that enhance the function and look of the teeth. The procedure is performed without the use of anesthesia or injections. However, the composite materials were not design to last a lifetime and require periodic replacements.

Veneers

This long-lasting option of smile improvement is offered to patients who are dissatisfied with the aesthetics of their smile and expect quick remedy. The veneers camouflage dental defects and can perfectly match and improve the existing dentition. Traditional veneers and no-prep veneers are two available options. Depending on various factors, the dentist will recommend the most beneficial choice with the approval of the patient.

Crowns and Bridges

More severe dental irregularities can be impeccably rectified with crowns and bridges. Excessive spacing and distorted teeth are prepared by the dentist to receive the fixed restorations which are expected to last for decades. With present state-of-the-art technology, crowns and bridges can be fabricated and permanently placed in a timely manner allowing the patient to enjoy their new and improved smile.
