That’s why our team is dedicated to helping patients achieve a straight, healthy smile that they’ll love.
Orthodontics is a specialty that involves the aligning of your teeth, jaw and bite. The most common orthodontic treatments use dental appliances, such as braces, retainers and aligners.
Straighten your teeth quickly
If you’re looking for quality orthodontic care in Westerville, Grandview or Springfield look no further. Our options offers a variety of benefits depending on your treatment of choice. Our most common treatments, like Invisalign and Short Term braces, can:
- Align your smile – We can straighten most irregularities quickly using discreet braces or near-invisible trays such as Invisalign
- Improve oral hygiene – Any irregularity to your smile can make it harder to clean. Food can get caught in unusual places, making brushing and flossing more difficult. This puts you at risk for periodontal (gum) disease and increases the chance of tooth decay. By straightening your teeth, you’ll have a much easier time keeping your gums and teeth clean and healthy
Metal and Tooth Colored Braces
Using high tech wired in either metal or tooth colored brackets, we can align your teeth efficiently with minimal effort on your part. This is a great option for many people since the patient typically doesn’t have to do much else other than keep them clean.
Invisalign® treatments use clear, removable aligners to straighten your teeth. As the aligners are nearly invisible, it is often the preferred orthodontic treatment for adults. A mold is taken of your teeth and sent to a lab to create customized, clear sets of aligners just for you. Every week, you’ll swap your current set of aligners for new ones, and see your dentist every 6 weeks to ensure your treatment is progressing.
Retainers are worn after your braces are removed, but they are a critical part of orthodontic treatment. These devices help your teeth stay aligned and prevents them from shifting. Retainers are made of either plastic or metal and keep the teeth from moving. Depending on your individual case, your retainer can be removable or fixed (permanent) and worn for both lower and upper teeth. It’s important to wear retainers as recommended, otherwise you’ll risk your smile reverting to its original position.
Some cases are very complex and require specialists to get the best results. We maintain excellent relationships with many Orthodontists in the Central Ohio area and can refer you as needed for the appropriate care. We stay in contact with the specialist throughout treatment to ensure fantastic results!
Your smile is our priority and we will explore all avenues in getting you the result you need!
