Braces near Me

January 22, 2021

Braces may not be a fashion statement, but the benefits of having a straight smile are numerous. Whether you have been referred by your dentist for corrective orthodontics, or are just thinking about a straighter smile, Carvalho & Roth Orthodontics can help.

Braces, Invisalign, and so Much More

Orthodontic care used to mean bulky metal braces and an ungainly look, but not anymore. The industry now offers a variety of effective treatment methods. If you remember the metal braces of yesteryear, prepare yourself for a pleasant surprise.

Although traditional metal braces are still a mainstay in the industry, improvements have made them less frightful. With smaller brackets, they are more comfortable while remaining effective. Clear Braces work in the same manner, but they use a clear ceramic bracket. This allows the brackets to blend with your natural tooth coloration, making them less noticeable.

Most people are familiar with Invisalign, the almost invisible tray alignment system. These removable trays are very popular for low-profile orthodontic care. Most people won’t even realize that you are wearing braces. Adults prefer Invisalign treatment because it does not affect their day-to-day life.

Invisalign treatment has expanded since its introduction in 1999 to include Invisalign Teen and Invisalign First. These two systems are specifically for use with younger patients but include all the technology of standard Invisalign trays.

In addition to monitoring tooth alignment, an orthodontist may use Phase 1 (early treatment) to assist a child’s jaw growth with palatal expanders or other orthodontic appliances. This will ensure that your child’s jaw grows to allow adequate spacing for adult teeth.

There are options for every member of the family at Carvalho & Roth Orthodontics.

Orthodontic Care for All Ages

The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends that children see an orthodontist before their seventh birthday. While this doesn’t mean they will need braces right away, it allows the doctor to monitor their oral growth. Many problems can be corrected with early treatment, creating a path to good future oral health.

Traditionally, the teen years are when most people receive orthodontic care. Primary, or baby, teeth are gone and most of the adult teeth are in place. Problems such as overcrowding, overbites, underbites, and alignment issues can be corrected while your teen is still growing. Teens can select a type of treatment that fits into their busy life, school, and sports or extracurricular activities.

Adults are frequently seeking orthodontic care also. While the desire for a straight smile may seem like a cosmetic excess, there are many additional benefits. These benefits include better overall health due to better oral health. Brushing and flossing are easier with a straight smile.

A straight and beautiful smile can provide a self-esteem boost to patients of any age. If you are ready to begin the journey to discover your perfect smile, contact Carvalho & Roth Orthodontics.
