Orthodontics

s-perfectSmile3.jpgOrthodontic treatment is available to patients of all ages! In accordance with the American Association of Orthodontists, we recommend that children have their first orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7. With early evaluation and diagnosis, children can achieve optimal orthodontic results. Early treatment provides a range of benefits and often means that a patient can avoid surgery or other serious complications. There is, of course, no age limit for orthodontic treatment as both children and adults benefit from orthodontics. As such, our office accommodates orthodontic patients of all ages.

We use two main types of appliances for orthodontic treatment:

Damon® Bracket System

The first self-ligating system, the Damon® System uses lighter wires and lower friction brackets while resulting in faster treatment.

Instead of having brackets that tighten and adjust the braces regularly, Damon braces use a slide mechanism that attaches wires to brackets to move naturally with the teeth as they realign. This makes them more comfortable, better looking and able to provide strong results in a shorter time.

These braces use a different method for moving teeth into the right position. The braces are attached to memory wire that connects slide brackets without the pressure that traditional elastics often produce. They are then set to move your teeth gradually, tightening over time. The process uses less force than traditional braces, which often require supplemental treatment through tooth extractions and palatal expanders.

Invisalign®

Invisalign® is a teeth-straightening system that uses clear, plastic aligners that are virtually invisible. No one will notice you are straightening your teeth unless you tell them!

Invisalign is a great way to boost your confidence. With Invisalign from Advanced Dental Center, your beautiful smile seems effortless. Discover how it feels to smile with spontaneity! However, the positive effects of Invisalign are more than cosmetic. Straightening your teeth with Invisalign makes it easier for your daily hygiene to effectively clean teeth and gum surfaces. Our patients are also more inclined to take top-notch care of their teeth after undergoing orthodontic treatment – so your oral health, confidence and overall well-being are enhanced by Invisalign.
