Braces Correct Moderate to Severe Misalignment

When most people think of orthodontics, they think braces. Not only are braces a versatile and proven method of treatment in the field of orthodontics, but they also offer patients suffering from moderate to severe alignment issues an effective way to treat their dental issue. If you are considering orthodontics, a visit to our Richmond, MI, office can help our dentist determine the best plan of action to meet your unique needs.

While the thought of wearing bulky metal braces may make you think twice about treatment, the longterm oral and overall health benefits can be life-changing. By correcting moderate to severe misalignment, you can enjoy a beautifully symmetrical smile boosting your self-confidence. Your new smile will also be easier to maintain, minimizing your risk of gum disease and decay.

Invisalign is another common orthodontic treatment...

Invisalign A Discreet Alternative to Braces

For patients at our cosmetic dentistry practice who have mild to moderate misalignment issues, Invisalign offers a virtually invisible alternative to traditional braces. Using a series of custom-crafted clear plastic aligner trays to gently adjust the contours of your smile, Invisalign is preferred by teens and adults who are interested in a straighter smile without the bulky and unattractive appearance of metal braces

This innovative treatment process offers a number of advantages over traditional braces for patients that qualify. Fabricated to comfortably fit your smile, the aligner trays have smooth edges that will not rub, snag, or irritate the delicate soft tissues inside your mouth the way braces can. Since the trays are removable, patients can continue to enjoy all of their favorite foods without worry. They also allow patients to continue to brush and floss their teeth normally so that they can maintain a bright smile and optimal oral health.

Invisalign is not for everyone. You must be committed to wearing the aligners for at least 20 to 22 hours a day, otherwise, the system will not work. For those who can dedicate the time and discipline to wearing the aligners for the required amount of time, Invisalign can transform your smile in just 12 to 18 months, which is a reduced timetable when compared to traditional orthodontic options.
