When you think of orthodontic treatments, you may envision metal braces and years of uncomfortable hardware in your mouth. While traditional braces are still used for correcting malocclusions and bite alignment issues, they are not the only option. At Columbine Creek Dentistry, we offer orthodontic options that can straighten your smile without the need for metal braces. Get a healthy, beautiful smile with our clear braces that are discreet and comfortable.
Orthodontics do more than just affect the look of your smile. Crooked and misaligned teeth can cause oral health issues, speech problems and even temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ/TMD). When misalignment occurs, teeth can be difficult to clean, allowing more areas for bacteria to hide, leading to decay and possibly gum disease. Orthodontics can fix these issues while giving you a beautiful smile that is straight and healthy.
Discreet Orthodontic Options
While teens are the most common age group to get braces or orthodontics, more and more adults want to fix their smiles. However, many teens and adults would prefer not to wear metal on their teeth for two years or more. Our orthodontic options allow you to choose different techniques to get the straight smile you want without metal braces. We offer the following orthodontic options to straighten your smile:
Invisalign clear aligners are a popular option for correcting misalignment. Like braces, these clear aligners shift your teeth and bite into place over the period of a year or more. However, there are no wires or metal brackets to adjust or to change the look of your smile. The clear plastic aligners fit comfortably over your teeth for a discreet alternative to metal braces.
