Crooked teeth are not only a cosmetic concern, they can also be the cause of complex dental problems affecting the health and comfort of the bite. Dr. Evans and Dr. Ziemba offer personalized orthodontic care to straighten your smile and improve your dental health.
From traditional metal braces to Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles®, your orthodontic care will be tailored to your unique needs and cosmetic goals. As family dentists, we can monitor your child’s growing smile to look for signs of developmental concerns that should be addressed with early orthodontic treatment: the AAO recommends that all children have an orthodontic screening no later than age 7 as growth-related problems may be identified at this time.
Dr. Evans or Dr. Ziemba will meet with you and thoroughly evaluate your dental health before recommending the most suitable type of orthodontic treatment. For patients with mild to moderate concerns, invisible braces are typically effective and can provide convenient, discreet treatment.
Invisalign is one of the most popular choices for straightening your smile with clear, comfortable aligners. Teens and adults prefer the discreet treatment that offers the convenience of easy removal for daily oral hygiene, eating and routine dental care.
Your Invisalign treatment begins with easy digital impressions that are used in the creation of your set of custom aligners. Changing them every couple of weeks according to your unique treatment schedule, these aligners will gently reposition your teeth.
Treatment time will depend on the number of aligners needed to achieve your health and cosmetic goals, but most patients finish treatment in about a year.
A final aligner will serve as your retainer, used daily to maintain results.
Benefits of Six Month Smiles
Six Month Smiles is a unique clear braces system that can be the perfect solution for patients needing to treat crooked or misaligned teeth located in the “smile zone”: the teeth visible when you are smiling.
Treatment is generally fast, accurate and comfortable. The clear brackets and wires will work to gently reposition the teeth for a straighter smile- and better oral health.
