For patients looking to straighten their smile, our dentists offer both traditional braces and Invisalign clear aligners as orthodontic treatment options.
How Orthodontics Work
The goal of orthodontic treatment is to straighten teeth so they look and work better. This is the case regardless of the patient's age.
Whether you are looking for orthodontic treatment to straighten your smile or that of your adolescent or teenager, our dentists can help you decide which course of orthodontic treatment to take.
At Park Lawn Dental our dentists offer braces or clear aligners. These orthodontic treatments work by putting gentle pressure on the teeth to move them gradually into the correct position over months or years.
Traditional braces, made of either metal or ceramic, have been used for decades to effectively straighten teeth. In recent years, advances in orthodontic treatment have resulted in braces that are lower-profile, more comfortable to wear and easier to care for.
How Braces Straighten Teeth
The brackets and wires that make up traditional braces apply continuous pressure to the teeth over some time, slowly moving them into their new, corrected positions.
As pressure is applied and the teeth move, the bone holding the teeth changes shape to accommodate each tooth's new position.
Invisalign Clear Aligners
With Invisalign clear aligners, your smile is gradually straightened using a series of individually customized, clear plastic aligners that are switched out about every two weeks, gradually moving the teeth to their desired positions.
Many patients find that Invisalign clear aligners offer a convenient solution to orthodontic treatment since they are removable. Removable aligners can make eating and brushing easier and can be taken out for those times when you'd prefer no one know that you are straightening your teeth.
Similar in appearance to custom whitening trays, clear aligners can be easy to remove and insert whenever necessary.
