Orthodontics are appliances that shift teeth into a more comfortable and desirable position. These devices straighten crooked teeth and correct malocclusions (bite problems) to improve the function and appearance of your smile.
Before recommending the best type of orthodontics for you, Dr. Kesman performs a comprehensive orthodontic evaluation. Your evaluation may include digital X-rays and cephalometric X-rays.
A cephalometric X-ray shows a side view of your head to expose the teeth, jaw, and other structures. A combination of digital and cephalometric X-rays gives Dr. Kesman a complete picture of your orthodontic health, so she can effectively plan your treatment.
The two most popular types of orthodontics are:
Braces consist of metal brackets and wires. The brackets bond to your teeth while the wires run through them. This tension gradually pulls your teeth into the correct position. While metal braces are the most common type, ceramic and transparent materials are also common. Braces typically take 18 months to three years* to straighten teeth and correct bite problems.
At Bright and Shine Dental, Dr. Kesman offers braces for children and adult braces. She recommends that every child visit for an orthodontic evaluation by age 7.
Clear aligners are translucent, removable devices that use gradual pressure to shift your teeth into a new position, just like braces. Dr. Kesman offers Invisalign®, the most popular brand of clear aligners. Invisalign consists of BPA-free plastic materials that mold to the exact shape and size of your teeth.
With Invisalign, you can eat your favorite foods, brush and floss, and smile comfortably. This effective, discreet treatment typically takes about 6-18 months* to correct orthodontic concerns.
In addition to correcting crooked teeth, orthodontics treat multiple types of concerns, including:
Bright and Shine Dental offers special pricing and flexible financing options for their patients. Dr. Kesman and the team always take the time to find the best diagnosis and treatment for every patient.
