If you’re ready for a new smile, keep reading to explore the possibilities for your perfect orthodontic journey with Dr. Webster and our friendly staff.
The basics: What is orthodontic treatment?
Let’s look at what orthodontic treatment can do for patients today.
This dental specialty allows us to fix smiles through jaw positioning and teeth alignment.
At Webster Orthodontics, we have solutions for things like:
- Early-stage orthodontics—to ensure proper growth alignment
- Braces for all ages—it’s not just for teens and kids
- Invisalign First
- Invisalign for Teens
- Invisalign for Adults
While you typically think of braces for kids and teensThis link leads to Braces for Kids page, modern orthodontics allows adults to achieve that beautiful smile they’ve always wanted.
Maybe you didn’t get braces as a child for whatever reason or have developed a misalignment issue as you age.
Guess what? We can fix that as well!
We can help children and teens correct misalignments early, boosting their confidence in any social situation and improving their oral health.
The different types of orthodontic treatment
The treatment you choose is based on your current oral health, your desired outcome, and your budget.
Braces, for instance, are the traditional approach for treating orthodontic problems.
Today’s treatment is phased and aims to save as many natural teeth as possible to give patients the most natural, full smile possible.
With braces, our dentist will use brackets connected to your teeth with a special dental glue.
Wires are then connected to the brackets to keep teeth more into their desired locations.
You may choose fun-colored brackets, standard metal, or even look into more discreet options, like clear braces.
On the other hand, Invisalign® consists of clear trays you place in your mouth that help to shift your teeth into the desired location.
Don’t worry; we’ll help you decide which option is right. For instance, you may feel self-conscious in a pair of metal braces.
Some conditions may require braces rather than Invisalign®.
