Orthodontics is the area of dentistry which is comprised of treatments focusing on the alignment of the teeth and bite. An improper bite is caused when the upper and lower jaws do not meet properly. Misaligned teeth can become the cause of various oral problems and infections. At Comfort Dental Care, we offer state-of-the-art orthodontic care treatments that give you a healthy, beautiful, aligned smile.
Some of the orthodontic treatments offered at our office are:
- Traditional Braces: Traditional braces are used to straighten the teeth using a combination of wires and brackets made of metal.
- Invisalign: Invisalign is a series of clear aligners that uses virtually invisible plastic aligners that are custom-made for your teeth. The aligners are like trays that fit over your upper and lower teeth and can be easily removed when needed. They use gradual force to shift the alignment of your teeth.
- Six Month Smiles: Six Month Smiles is a treatment plan that uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires so you can smile with confidence as you undergo treatment. A major advantage of this therapy is that the treatment time is only about six months making it an aesthetically pleasing and quick way to straighten your teeth.
- FastBraces: FastBraces are a slightly different approach towards straightening your teeth. They make use of triangular braces and a single nickel wire, which move the crown and root of your teeth at the same time. This reduces treatment time.
- Retainers: Retainers are generally worn at the end of your orthodontic treatment to prevent your newly positioned teeth from shifting back into their old place. They are prescribed once your braces have been taken off.
