Orthodontic treatments correct bite imbalances called malocclusions. These imbalances can place increased pressure on certain parts of your jaw and can make it difficult to thoroughly clean all of your teeth.
Some of the most common types of malocclusion treatable with orthodontics are:
Orthodontics can also close wide gaps or push apart crowded and overlapping teeth. During your consultation at Beaufils Dental, the team helps you choose between multiple orthodontic options according to your budget, needs, and expectations.
Beaufils Dental offers multiple orthodontic treatments for teens and adults. The team teaches you everything you need to know so you can make a well-informed decision for your treatment. Your options are:
Invisalign and Invisalign Teen® are inconspicuous treatments for crooked teeth. You get a series of custom aligners that fit over your arches. Each aligner places gentle pressure on your teeth to gradually push them into alignment, and you progress to the next aligner every two weeks or so. You must wear your aligners for at least 20 hours a day to stay on track with your progress.
Metal braces are the traditional method of orthodontic treatment. Metal brackets attach to your teeth with wires and bands threaded through them. Your orthodontist tightens them regularly to pressure your teeth into alignment.
Clear braces work in the same way as metal braces but are harder to see in your smile because the brackets are made of clear or tooth-colored materials instead of metal.
Beaufils Dental plans orthodontic treatments in detail using advanced 3D digital imaging. Cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) scanning allows the team to see your mouth and jaw as a digital 3D model that they can manipulate on a computer. This lets the team map out the movement of your teeth and design Invisalign® aligners that fit perfectly at every step in treatment.
Before you proceed with orthodontics, the team treats any current oral health issues you have. They may suggest getting a root canal or treating gum disease before they attach braces or create your Invisalign system.
