There are a number of reasons to consider orthodontic treatment. Straightening your teeth not only gives you a beautiful smile, but it also can improve your oral health! Having a properly aligned bite allows you to clean your teeth more effectively, preventing such issues as gingivitis and tooth decay. Also, remedying your bite can align your jawbone and facial profile. That’s why, at Advanced Family Dental & Orthodontics of Mt. Olive, we’re proud to offer you best in orthodontic care.
Every patient is different, which is why we will work closely with you to create a customized treatment plan to fit your individual orthodontic needs. During your free initial consultation, we will review dental records, x-rays, and your bite to determine which of the following treatment methods might work best for you.
- Braces. Braces are a widely used and highly recommended method of straightening your teeth. This method really works! To align your bite with braces, your orthodontist will thread a U-shaped wire through brackets that have been cemented to your teeth. During your regularly scheduled visits, we will adjust the wire to move your teeth into place gradually. Traditionally, braces are applied to the outside of your teeth. However, with the latest developments in orthodontic technology, we now offer “sleep braces” and lingual arch braces that hide behind the teeth. This allows you to straighten your teeth without others even noticing.
- Express Smiles™ If you would like to straighten your teeth in as little as 2-4 months, this is the method for you. This cutting-edge system utilizes brackets that are hidden behind the teeth, and they can align your bite in a fraction of the time of traditional braces. They also come in clear or tooth-colored materials so no one will be able to notice you have you them!
- Invisalign You don’t necessarily need to have wires and brackets on your teeth to straighten your bite. If you’d like a more discrete alternative, Invisalign is a fantastic option. In fact, no one will even know you’re wearing them! The Invisalign system utilizes a series of custom-made clear aligners that gradually move your teeth over time. You can also remove them whenever you’d like—permitting you to eat your favorite foods without any hassle!
