Types Of Treatments
Braces are the traditional way to align and straighten teeth, while helping position them with regard to your bite. They work by applying continuous pressure over a period of time to slowly move teeth.
Surgical orthodontics, also known as orthognathic surgery, is a type of orthodontic treatment used to correct severe cases that include bad bites, jaw bone abnormalities, and malocclusion. The need for surgical orthodontics occurs when the jaws do not line up correctly, and a proper bite cannot be achieved with orthodontic treatment alone. If you need surgical orthodontics, your orthodontist will work with an oral and maxillofacial surgeon to ensure that you receive the best care possible.
Invisalign treatment uses a series of virtually invisible, removable, and comfortable aligners that allow you to smile more during treatment as well as after.
ClearCorrect invisible braces are an alternative to traditional braces. There are no wires or brackets; just clear, convenient comfort that gives you every reason to smile.
iTero® Digital Impression System
iTero is a scanner that allows your orthodontist to take a highly accurate digital impression of your teeth and jaw. The new technology completely eliminates the tray and putty impressions that often causes discomfort for patients.
If you are experiencing minor pain or discomfort, there are things you can do until your next appointment to soothe discomfort at home. (generally, don’t do anything except put wax on it, then call our offices)
Loose Brackets, Appliances and Wires
If a part of your braces breaks or becomes loose, first call the office to see if you must wait until your next scheduled appointment or if you should come in sooner. If the bracket or band is still attached to the archwire, leave everything as is. Never try to pull it off or attach elastics to it. To treat any discomfort, use orthodontic wax to cover it or move it back in to place. To do this, use a tool like a q-tip or tweezers- never use your fingers! If your bracket or band does come off, bring it with you to your next appointment.
To ease any pain, simple over-the-counter pain medicine will do the trick. If you are experiencing mouth ulcers, try rinsing your mouth with salt water. Topical numbing solutions are also safe to treat mouth ulcers.
