The team at Storts Family Dentistry wants to help our patients achieve smiles they are proud of. This is why we would like to highlight our orthodontic options! We get many questions about Invisalign, braces, and other forms of orthodonture. There is always more to learn! Hopefully, this information will help you decide whether moving forward with orthodontic treatment is suitable for you and your family.
Invisalign is an excellent alternative to traditional braces. Not only will you be able to eat the foods you love, but you will also be able to see your smile progress through every step of treatment. When wearing your aligners, you will be ready for anything. Just take them out before eating or drinking, and brush your teeth before putting them back in. Wearing your aligners for 20-22 hours per day will give you the best results and shortest overall treatment time. If you are a parent, your child’s aligners will have blue compliance indicators, so you can make sure they are wearing them for the required amount of time per day. Invisalign treatment is risk-free, straightforward, and an excellent option for all ages and stages of life!
Would you prefer to stick with tried-and-true traditional braces? Luckily, we offer them as well! Metal braces use stainless steel brackets and wires to apply pressure to each tooth. This technique gradually coaxes your teeth into a healthy alignment and will result in a beautiful, straight smile! One of the best parts about traditional braces is that you won’t have to worry about whether or not you are wearing them enough; they’re always there! In addition to this, children can choose fun colors for their rubbers bands to make their orthodontic treatment more exciting.
With both Invisalign clear aligners and traditional metal braces, patients will wear a retainer after treatment to keep their teeth from shifting. We will offer these along with your orthodontic treatment and guarantee that your newly straightened smile will be kept beautiful! In addition to retainers, Storts Family Dentistry also provides mouthguards. Mouthguards are a fantastic option if you struggle with clenching and grinding your teeth as you sleep. If your teeth go unprotected, clenching and grinding can wear them down over time and result in expensive dental treatment. Having a mouthguard will help you sleep comfortably while protecting your smile!
We want to educate our patients as much as possible on our services, and we hope this was helpful concerning orthodontic treatments! Orthodonture can provide long-lasting restoration, uses the latest material for optimal results, and gives you a customized plan for your smile needs. These are some of the main reasons we love offering it and other dental procedures to our patients!
