Orthodontics Q & A

What is orthodontics? 

Orthodontics refers to a variety of different methods to help straighten teeth into optimal alignment. When your teeth are crooked, pockets can form where harmful bacteria accumulate. Over time, this can increase your risk of tooth decay and periodontal disease. 

With orthodontic treatment, you can shift your teeth into proper alignment and prevent varied oral health concerns. You’ll also come out of treatment with a healthier-looking, more attractive smile. 

What options do I have when it comes to orthodontics? 

The team at Comfort Dental Spa offers different orthodontic treatments catering to your varied needs and preferences. Some options include: 

Traditional braces

With traditional metal brackets, controlled force helps gradually shift your teeth into proper alignment over time. If you’d like to make traditional braces more discreet, you can opt for clear brackets. When you come in for scheduled visits, a Comfort Dental Spa team member will adjust the wiring to ensure the continued proper movement of your teeth. 

Invisalign®

This revolutionary orthodontic treatment system uses clear, removable aligners to shift your teeth into optimal position. You can take out the aligners to brush your teeth and eat. They’re practically invisible, allowing you to smile with confidence during treatment. 

Six Month Smiles®

With specially designed clear brackets and wiring, this system straightens teeth in just six months on average. It’s generally reserved for a more minor bite and spacing issues. 

Am I too old for orthodontics? 

The short answer is no, you’re never too old for orthodontics. Plenty of adults decide to undergo orthodontic treatment to straighten their teeth. It’s never too late to improve your appearance and oral health. 

How long does treatment with orthodontics take? 

The length of your treatment plan varies depending on factors such as your age, the state of your smile, and the type of orthodontics you choose. Generally, orthodontic treatment takes approximately 12 months, on average. However, in some cases, the process is significantly shorter or longer.   

The team at Comfort Dental Spa doesn’t look for shortcuts and prescribes the best orthodontic treatments for you, seeing them through until you get optimal results.
