What Is Orthodontics?
Orthodontics is a branch of dentistry focused on dental conditions such as crowding, misalignment, poor tooth spacing, overbites, underbites, and much more. With orthodontic treatment, smiles that suffer from one or several of these issues can have a more complete and appealing smile – right here in our office!
Sandwich Dental Associates Orthodontics
Orthodontics isn’t just the tired old thought of metal braces. Modern-day orthodontics is much more, with many ways to straighten and correct teeth positioning. Like Invisalign – a completely clear, comfortable, and discreet way of straightening teeth.
How long does it take to straighten teeth?
At Sandwich Dental Associates, we have many teeth-straightening solutions available for patients of all ages, including solutions that are nearly invisible and can significantly change your alignment in as little as six months. The time it will take to straighten your teeth largely depends on the severity of your condition.
What are invisible braces?
Like an orthodontist, we are able to straighten your smile with tooth-straightening systems that are nearly invisible, such as Invisalign. Both of these systems use clear materials (i.e., clear brackets and wiring, and removable aligners) that are discreet and comfortable.
Does everyone need braces?
No. Only patients with misalignment problems need to wear braces. The best way to find out if you or your child will need braces is to call and set up an appointment for a consultation with Dr. Glavin or Dr. Phan.
