Information about Orthodontics

People who can benefit from orthodontic treatment may have the following conditions:

  • Crooked teeth
  • Overlapping teeth
  • Gaps between teeth
  • Teeth that tip or look twisted
  • Teeth in the wrong place

More and more adults are seeking orthodontics either because they never had the opportunity as a child or because their teeth have moved over the years. Drs. Childs and Childs are skilled at adult orthodontics and offer a variety of options. An exam to answer your questions on how to straighten teeth can educate you regarding which options are best for your case and will provide you with beautiful long-lasting results.

Different Types of Braces

Traditional braces are still an effective and reliable way to achieve great results. Childs and Childs Dentistry can discuss and demonstrate what your outcome may be using this tried and true method of moving teeth. Traditional brackets have undergone improvements over the years and can still be one of the most efficient ways to move teeth.

The Six Month Smiles system focuses on moving the front teeth to achieve your desired appearance without back teeth involvement. Many adults avoid orthodontics because they are embarrassed to wear metal brackets. Six Month Smiles utilizes clear brackets to gently and efficiently straighten your teeth. You can improve your appearance in an average time of six months without silver brackets.

Maybe you don’t want anyone to know that you are moving your teeth at all, or are looking for the newest braces for teeth that are nearly invisible. Invisalign utilizes custom-made clear aligners to gently move your teeth over time. The aligners are smooth, comfortable, and barely visible - even when you are speaking. With no brackets and wires, it is much easier to keep your teeth clean and to floss normally without awkward floss threaders. You simply pop new aligners in your mouth approximately every two weeks until your treatment is complete. 

How Long Does Orthodontic Treatment Take?

Treatment times will vary based on your specific needs. Many cases can be completed in around six months while some complex cases will require more time. After your initial orthodontic evaluation, we can provide you an accurate estimate of your treatment time.
