When you see someone with straight teeth and a confident smile, do you wish you could have that, too? Well, orthodontics aren’t just for kids anymore. In fact, some 25 percent of all orthodontic patients are adults. So, whether you or your child need braces, the orthodontist at Avanti Dentistry in Tyson’s Corner, VA, can evaluate your smile and your overall oral health to determine the best course of orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontics to the Rescue!
Dental braces can be used to treat teeth that are crooked (rotated), over crowded, misaligned or unevenly spaced. Braces gently move teeth into the ideal position for a more pleasing smile. But that’s not all. When teeth are in their proper place, they are easier to brush and floss thereby avoiding possible tooth decay and gum disease. So, braces can improve your smile, your oral health and even your general health.
Avanti Dentistry offers a number of orthodontic treatment options. Traditional braces consist of brackets, arch wires and elastic ties that secure the wires in place. You’ve probably seen young orthodontic patients with colorful braces. That’s because elastics come in a rainbow of colors.
In addition to traditional braces, Avanti Dentistry also offers Invisalign® and Incognito™ Hidden Braces. With Invisalign clear aligners, your orthodontist will supply you with a series of clear plastic aligners for your upper and lower teeth. You will wear your aligners every day, gradually progressing through each set. As you progress, you will see your teeth move into position.
As the name implies, Incognito Hidden Braces are hidden behind your teeth. These customized braces adhere to the backside of your teeth. No one will see that you are wearing braces. Whether you and your doctor decide that traditional, Invisalign or Incognito braces are best for you, the treatment usually takes between one to two years.
