Extensive Braces Service at Shirck Orthodontics

May 30, 2015

ThinkstockPhotos-173656497Traditionally, braces have been the standard for getting the perfect smile you have always wanted. Chances are you or someone you know has had braces before. Braces are one way to correct your teeth. Thankfully, orthodontic technology has come a long way and Shirck Orthodontics in Pataskala, OH, New Albandy, OH, and Westerville OH, is proud to offer several types of braces for our patients.

 

Traditional Braces

Traditional braces have been the go-to among countless families. They use metal brackets and wires to reposition teeth. Periodically, braces must be tightened in order to keep everything in line. As they are tightened, teeth are loosened and then moved into their correct position. Initial soreness is uniform for all patients but it fades in time. The longer you wear traditional braces, the easier it is to deal with any slight discomfort.

 

Lingual Braces

Lingual braces are similar to traditional braces, only backwards. Custom-made brackets are affixed to the inside of your teeth instead of the outside. These customized brackets will reduce the potential for scratching of the tongue as well as any other discomfort. Any type of case can be treated and the best part is you don’t have to wear trays in your mouth for 22 hours a day. Also, just like Invisalign, lingual braces are not noticeable to anyone. You and Dr. Shirck are the only ones who will know you have braces. How cool is that?

 

Invisalign

For adults who want a straighter smile but don’t want any metal in their mouths, Invisalign is the preferred choice. It delivers fantastic results using clear, custom-made aligners minus the brackets and wires. Clear trays move your teeth into position gradually, until they’ve reached their preferred position. Every patient has different needs, but most often treatment takes between 9 and 15 months with around 18-30 trays that are used. Unlike with traditional braces where food particles are constantly stuck in and around brackets, each Invisalign tray is removable. Pictures, special occasions, chowing down on your favorite grub – whatever the case, removable trays give you freedom.

 

Clear Braces

Clear braces offer the pinpoint correctness of traditional braces, but with a twist: brackets are clear and ceramic. They blend in with your teeth for a level of discreetness that’s comforting. While the clear braces themselves do not stain, the clear ties that hold in the wire are susceptible to stains. These ties are changed out during each appointment.

Why Is Orthodontic Treatment So Important?

December 10, 2014

78750927Seeking the orthodontic treatment you need, will not only improve your smile, it will also protect your overall dental health. Crooked, spaced, gapped, turned, or misaligned teeth can be hard to maintain and may lead to periodontal disease, tooth decay, or even tooth loss.  Orthodontic problems can also cause abnormal wear of tooth surfaces, speech problems, difficulty chewing, and damage to the temporomandibular joints (TMJ Disorder).  Malocclusions like protruding upper teeth can also increase the possibility of fracture after dental trauma. You can prevent these problems by making an appointment with Dr. Shirck today for your orthodontic treatment consultation. Shirck Orthodontics proudly serves patients throughout New Albany, OH, Pataskala, Westerville, Sunbury, New Albany, Alexandria, Granville, Johnstown, Newark, Reynoldsburg, Blacklick, and the surrounding communities.

When Should You Seek Orthodontic Treatment For Your Child?

Every child is different, so there is no single answer to this question.  However, the American Association of Orthodontics recommends that every child get an orthodontic evaluation by age 7, or sooner if an orthodontic problem is detected earlier.  In some cases, early intervention utilizing your child’s growth can make corrective orthodontic treatment faster and easier.

When Should You Seek Orthodontic Treatment For Yourself?

It’s never too late. Orthodontic treatment for those with healthy teeth and gums can be successful at any age.  Many adults are choosing orthodontic treatment to improve their smile and support good oral health.

What Are Your Orthodontic Treatment Options?

Today, there are many different orthodontic treatment options. Dr. Shirck will work with you to find the treatment that will work best for you or your child. Options include:

Discreet Orthodontics with Dr. Jeffrey Shirck

August 8, 2014

178597379Though there are some who do not mind the look of traditional braces, there are those who prefer a more discreet form of orthodontic care. Wires and brackets can be uncomfortable, and having a mouth full of metal can turn people away from taking the step in straightening their smiles. Fortunately, the world of orthodontics has come a long way. Now our patients are able to straighten their smiles discreetly while being able to look like their natural selves, and Dr. Jeffrey Shirck is able to make that happen for his patients.

One form of conservative orthodontic treatment that our offices offer is Invisalign and Invisalign Teen. Invisalign works through a series of aligning trays that are specially made to fit your smile only. Sitting nearly invisibly on your smile, each tray is indicative of a new stage in your straightening process. After you wear a tray for a certain amount of time, simply apply the next one in the series to continue your orthodontic treatment. One of the benefits of Invisalign is that you are not on a restricted diet as you would be with traditional braces. You are able to eat and drink whatever you want, and any time you need to brush or floss, simply remove and reapply the tray when necessary!
Another form of discreet orthodontics we offer is lingual braces. Lingual braces uses brackets that are, again, custom made just for you! This ensures that your treatment plan is as personalized as possible, delivering amazing results. The wonderful thing about lingual braces is that the brackets sit inside of your teeth, completely hiding the fact that you are wearing braces at all! A wonderful option for our adult patients, you are able to achieve the straighter smile you have been wanting, all the while looking completely natural! If you are interested in discreet orthodontics and would like the help of Dr. Shirck, contact our office today!
