Orthodontics Q & A

What is orthodontics? 

Orthodontics refers to a variety of different methods to straighten teeth into optimal alignment. When your teeth are crooked, pockets can form where harmful bacteria accumulate. Essentially, crooked teeth are harder to keep clean. 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 oral health problems. You’ll also come out of treatment with a more attractive smile and a boost in self-confidence. 

What options do I have when it comes to orthodontics? 

The team at Supertooth Dental Group offers different orthodontic treatments catering to your varied needs and preferences. However, in most cases, traditional braces with metal brackets are used to address more severe alignment issues. 

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. 

Also, the team at Supertooth Dental Group offers Invisalign®, the revolutionary clear aligner system. With Invisalign’s transparent, removable aligners, you can straighten your teeth and people can’t even tell you’re wearing a dental appliance.  

The team at Supertooth Dental Group can help you determine which orthodontic treatment is best for you, depending on factors such as the state of your teeth, your overall health, and your age. 

Am I too old for orthodontics? 

Of course not. 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. The team at Supertooth Dental Group provides orthodontic treatment to patients of all ages, from kids and teens to adults. 

How long does orthodontic treatment 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 expert team at Supertooth Dental Group has always focused on securing the best possible cosmetic and oral health results. Sometimes, that means slightly longer treatment plans. But, when you complete your orthodontic treatment, you’ll be ecstatic with the way your smile looks.
