Doesn’t it seem like orthodontic or smile straightening solutions are everywhere these days? You can’t turn on the TV or go online without an ad popping up for the aligners promising to fix your teeth in as little as six months. We’re here to tell you what these ads fail to mention. Sure, clear aligners are an amazing orthodontic invention and have led to some dramatic results in our Townsend dental office, but it’s always good to have a professional by your side.
By choosing a respected, reputable orthodontist like the ones we have on our team, you’re opening up new doors for your orthodontic treatment. We offer more than just a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all approach to smile straightening. We do this because like the ads also fail to mention, every smile is different and every person has different needs, so your orthodontic solution might not look the same as the patient next to you.
Let’s look at some of the orthodontic options we conveniently offer in the comfort of our Townsend dental office.
Since we’ve kind of already touched on this and we all know how popular clear aligners have become, let’s start out with the big one. Our orthodontists are specially trained and certified to provide patients with both Invisalign® and Invisalign® Teen.
They can show you how the aligners will shift your teeth over time and give you a straighter smile all without having metal braces. Teens and adults love Invisalign® because you retain freedom in your life while undergoing orthodontic treatment. You can still eat the foods you like and take the aligners out when necessary.
These are the tried and true examples everyone thinks of when they hear the term orthodontics. The truth is, stainless steel braces have been around so long because they’re effective at straightening smiles of all ages. After careful planning, your orthodontist will design and apply your braces sending you into something we call the “active” phase of orthodontic treatment. This means you’re going to come to our dental office in Townsend for regular visits and adjustments with your orthodontist to ensure successful straightening.
These braces operate the same as traditional stainless steel braces. However, they’re more clear and a lot less noticeable than stainless steel. The brackets are clear or tooth-colored so it’s a little bit harder for people to tell that you’re wearing braces.
Waiting to straighten your smile won’t get you anywhere! Call our dental office in Townsend today to schedule a consultation so we can get a better understanding of what you’re looking for and what your orthodontic needs might be.
