Straightening the teeth cannot only drastically improve the appearance of the smile, but it can also lead to better oral health. Properly aligned teeth are easier to clean and don’t have small areas where plaque can become trapped and be out of reach of your brush and floss. And, at Total Dental Solutions, you have many options for orthodontic treatment, ranging from traditional braces to Six Month Smiles to Invisalign and more. Give us a call today to learn more about your options!
This is often the gold standard of treatment, especially if you have severe alignment or bite issues. We’ll use metal brackets and wires to dramatically move your teeth. For gentler tooth movements, we can use thermal nickel-titanium wires.
FastBraces are able to shift the teeth much more quickly than regular braces because they actually move the crowns and roots of the teeth at the same time. Traditionally, each part of the teeth is moved in two different phases, which can make the orthodontic process last for multiple years. By moving an entire tooth at once, FastBraces can help a patient achieve their final results in record time.
If your front teeth are only slightly misaligned, then Six Month Smiles was designed just for you. This bracket and wire treatment focuses just on the front six teeth, or the ones that show most prominently when you smile. By only adjusting them, they can move much more quickly compared to traditional braces without relying on more force. In less than a year, this treatment can deliver a dramatic cosmetic improvement that can be trusted to last.
Can’t stand the thought of cemented brackets and wires? Invisalign may be right for you. Instead of metal, it uses a customized series of nearly invisible plastic aligners that gradually straighten teeth. Most patients see results in 12 to 18 months!
