What is Orthodontics?
Orthodontic treatment ranges from the minor movement of a few teeth to the alignment of an entire bite. In certain situations, orthodontics may also be used to align the teeth before and after the surgical correction of severe jaw discrepancies.
Spark Aligners are made of TruGEN™, the latest generation of aligner material, and are engineered to provide better-sustained force retention for maximum efficiency. Spark aligners are also engineered to be clearer and have fewer aligner stains than the leading aligner material, so you can feel more secure during treatment.
MetalMetal Braces are, by far, the most “tried and true” treatment approach. Braces have come a long way, as they are now smaller, more efficient, and more comfortable than traditional metal brackets. This is a popular option for teens who want to show their personality through colorful elastic rings.
ClearClear Braces are less noticeable than metal braces. It is the desired treatment for teens and adults who want to straighten their teeth as discreetly as possible but are not candidates for clear aligners. The clear brackets are transparent and blend well with your teeth.
Depending upon the specific needs of the case, these appliances may be used to accomplish several issues, including:
- Widening the jaws to make sufficient space for permanent teeth
- Influencing jaw growth
- The reduction of deep overbites
- Allowing for the correction of teeth in crossbite
- Maintaining the space for a permanent tooth when a baby has been prematurely lost
- Minor tooth movement
- Helping to control harmful oral habits, such as finger sucking
